Why do we love this
This is Tasmania's (if not Australia's) most spectacular sea kayaking tour - what's not to love! We think the chance to explore the Tasman National Park by kayak is pretty cool... plus the chance to see the highest sea cliffs in Australia and paddle over a shipwreck is pretty awesome.
