String of Pearls

Cruising at the Squadron has got a whole lot more popular with the launch of the String of Pearls - a series of strategically placed moorings in sheltered waters around Hobart.

The String of Pearls is a series of strategically placed mooring facilities at key locations within sheltered waters around Hobart. The aim is to create a cruising experience in southern Tasmania which provides Squadron members with a full itinerary of destinations. Moorings are spread across the cruising waters of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, Norfolk Bay, Frederick Henry Bay, Bruny Island, Storm Bay, the River Derwent, the Tasman Peninsula, Triabunna and Coles Bay.

Mooring locations are located close to onshore tourist attractions, allowing sailors to explore the many treasures of this extraordinary region: the beaches, walking tracks, restaurants, cafes, cheeseries, smokehouses, orchards, vineyards, cideries, museums and so much more.

To use the String of Pearls moorings you must be a member of the DSS and pay a yearly subscription of $100.
