An exclusive seaplane transfer links the three-night luxury cruise in Port Davey with a three-night stay at Saffire, plus returns to Hobart. This all-inclusive partnership offers seamless connections on the luxury package and a breathtaking aerial perspective of the island state and its sparkling coasts.
