Just 10 minutes drive from Wavestation towards Hobart you will find the wonderful marina at Kettering. Moored are some of Tasmania's finest boats especially the huon pine motor sailers.
You can catch the ferry from outside Mermaid Cafe. While you wait enjoy a latte or a quick meal, even maybe a scallop pie. The service is quick and a lovely way to spend a few minutes before you board the ferry for Bruny Island. On the way back you can pick up some fish and chips at the Ferry Road Store in Kettering on Ferry Road. The Oyster Cove Chandlery is interesting and has all the gear for yatchties.
