Sunday, November 8th: Port Arthur – Triabunna
We had an early start again as we needed to leave our accommodation and be at the Wild Ocean Tasmania office by 9. The sun was out and temperature was rising already when we fitted our warm onesee and drysuit. Then it was off to the harbour to meet Dammo, the skipper of the boat that would take us along the rocky shores to a seal colony at the Southern tip of the peninsula. Once there, a platform was put in the water and we could then lay face down on it to see the seals underwater as they came to see what these funny creatures with their boat were up to. Suzy steered the platform as close to the seals as possible and they didn’t seem to mind us being there.
On the way back the winds were picking up so the waves were getting higher so it was a bit bumpy at time. Back at base we crawled out of the suits and, before driving off again, we went to see two orphaned wallabies that Dammo and Suzy take care of.
As our next destination once again has little to offer for meals we stopped at Sorell for lunch and supplies.
