We took the Bruny Island Cruise on a beautiful sunny day in September with my family of six, ages 21, 9, 5, and 3. We drove our vehicle on the Ferry from Hobart to and from Bruny Island. This allowed us the opportunity to makes some stops along the way back to Ferry. There appears to be a shuttle service... More

Please don't be fooled by the word "cruise" here - this is not your float-along, buffet-lunch sightseeing type of deal here. You are on a speedboat. It's fast and windy. The water is choppy. You are given an orange spacesuit thing to wear over your clothes as you will most likely get wet. But if you are ready for this,... More

This was such an amazing, full day! Besides the informative and exciting boat tour around Bruny Island, the convenience of transport from Hobart, the meals that are provided at the perfect times and the great, funny staff are also what makes this tour worth your time and money.

The boat was full. The tour guide, Mick and andrew were both old hats at a job they so obviously loved and were so good at. The tour lasted around 3 hours. You were able to see all the huge cliffs, blow holes, caves and wild seas of that side of Tasmania. We saw albatros, seals by the dozens, and... More

What a great day out, we enjoyed this trip immensely it is well worth the money. The crew look after you offering beanies and wet weather gear to keep warm, the scenery is fantastic, I would suggest u take a plastic bag for your camera as you can get very wet. I would recommend this cruise.

We drove to Kettering and caught the bus from there. The trip to the leaving point was great and the driver was really knowledgeable and lots of fun. The weather was fine but very, very cold so we were thankful that they provide beanies and gloves along with wet weather jackets that come down to your ankles. The boat trip... More

Did the 3 hour Bruny Island cruise which was a great experience. Luckily the weather was fine and sunny but even then a bit cool out on the water. Fantastic close up views of the stunning coastline thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip.

It was an amazing experience watching the wildlife and being in the midst of nothing at all. The landscape was serene. It does get very cold so dress warmly. They did provide beanies, gloves and waterproof/windproof jacket complimentary, all of which were a life saviour. The ride does get bumpy so be careful with regards to sea sickness.
