I took the early morning ferry to Bruny Island for the morning boat trip. A welcome coffee and muffin started the day well before we went out on the boat. Its not just about the wildlife but also plenty of information about the island and its formation. We were lucky and saw, dolphins, whales, seals and albatross. It was an... More

So much fun..the guides are really informative and we saw tons of wildlife. This was a real highlight of our trip to Bruny Island. We saw dolphins, Seals, Seal pups, a few types of birds, some amazing cliffs and the rough seas of the South Ocean! I think the best part of the trip was having such well-informed guides who...

We journeyed to Bruny with the express desire to do the food tours and enjoy some local fare, but instead we ended up at Tasman Tours to do an afternoon tour down the eats coast of Bruny and out into the Southern Ocean. The boats are fantastic and crew informative and friendly. They kit you out according to the weather.... More

Our daughter and son in law joined us. We were so thrilled with the whole experience, the staff were so welcoming,the boat was fantastic, the scenery amazing,... More

What an amazing day from a great and professional company. Nicole (driver and one of the boat crew) kept us all entertained with great stories about the area, while the morning tea and lunch were very well done considering there were almost 200 people there that day. Of course, the highlight was the cruise itself and they didn't disappoint, seeing... More

This was one of the best things that we have ever done. It was non stop fun from the minute we stepped on the bus. The 2 hosts were funny, friendly and helpful. The boat trip from Adventure Bay on Bruny Island was fantastic! The boats are very powerful and comfortable. It ticked all the boxes for a great adventure-... More

Ride was bumpy and it was incredibly cold but the guide Hannah kept us laughing and was the cherry on top of a fantastic day. Only thing missing was a pub with a roaring fire to warm up at the end but the meal was fantastic and did in a pinch 😊

We booked as a large extended family group (10 adults, 2 young kids and an infant) for the Bruny Island Wilderness Cruise, including the bus trip from Kettering. It was a great way to experience the island as a group and our tour guide, Mick was fantastic and kept the energy up throughout the day. The cruise itself can be... More

My wife and I took the tour from Adventure Bay on Bruny Island. We both thought this half day cruise was excellent and great value for money. The company seems very professional and the captain on our boat had a good sense of humour and kept the paying guests entertained and well informed. The boats are quite new and seem... More
