SailTime Hobart is now based at the brand new Derwent Sailing Squadron floating marina just 5 minutes from the centre of Hobart and right next to the Wrest Point Hotel Casino. SailTime Hobart offers relaxing, affordable, walk on access to Tasmania’s amazing waterways skippering your own yacht!

This location on the River Derwent provides members with a convenient starting point to explore Tasmania’s world class sailing grounds whilst also being able to enjoy the club facilities and marina at the Derwent Sailing Squadron . The Derwent estuary, D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Norfolk Bay are littered with coves and bays which are just waiting to be explored!

Moorings, anchorages & destinations

One of the many destinations well worth taking is your own eco-cruise to the many bays and coastlines of Bruny Island, where you can sail beneath sea cliffs, explore sea caves, and photograph the abundant wildlife both on land and in water. Be equally inspired by the scenery when you moor at award-winning The Stackings Restaurant at Peppermint Bay, overnight and dine at Cygnet, the home of the Red Velvet Lounge and the Cygnet Folk Festival , moor and picnic at beautiful and sheltered Barnes Bay, opposite Kettering.

If you are seeking more options and wish to extend your sailing, head over to Lime Bay and Norfolk Bay for a whole new cruising ground.

Alternatively simply, explore the Derwent River, Kingston Beach, the Alum Cliffs and meet up with your friends at Constitution Dock for dinner or the vibrant Salamanca markets, enjoying the timeless charm of the harbour capital of Hobart, all from your own boat.
