This is a must do if you get the opportunity to visit Bruny Island. Exciting without being too adrenalin charged. The crew, Michael and Julie, were very entertaining and professional and gave us an experience to remember. They even had my potential sea sickness covered.The rigid rubber boat is highly manouverable and can provide a close up of the cliffs,... More

I really enjoyed this eco cruise presented by very knowledgeable and entertaining guides. The cruise lasted for nearly 3 hours and took us to blow holes, interesting geological sites and wildlife.

The first time we went to Bruny I wasn't fussed and it reminded me of Bribie Island 30 years ago. Second time to Bruny because we had the cruise voucher and we loved it. The cruise was brilliant. Seriously the... More

We drove all the way from Hobart to Adventure Bay Bruny Island for this cruise on 25th March 2014. The number of people present was evident as to how popular was the cruise despite the relatively low season. Staff are efficient, friendly and entertaining. They kept us protected by a thick wind coat. Despite that it is still advisable for... More

Can't speak highly enough of the crew at Bruny Island Cruises. It was a sensational journey, filled with excitement, informative commentary and some delightful witty asides. Skipper Andrew did a great job. A must for everyone's bucket list.
