Worst first: 1. Drop the two headed Tasmanian jokes, not funny, cringe making for many, 2. The day I went, only one functioning toilet for women so long queue and long long wait. Not good enough for the money paid. Especially with what must have been 140 participants. Exhilarating experience despite the absolutely foul weather and the rough seas. We... More

Last time we visited, 10 years ago, it was Winter and no cruises running, or we had been visiting other parts of Tassie & not going near Bruny Island. Well we made it this month & the experience was brilliant!! Breathtaking seascapes, amazing wildlife ,& fabulous,... More

Everybody associated with this be adventure went out of their way to make our experience a pleasurable one, full marks to all concerned.

Tassie turned it on great weather. A really friendly fun tour for all ages. Lovely food as well. Guides were friendly sincere and passionate about their patch and the protection of it.

If you do nothing else in Tasmania you must do this. It takes you to some spectacular places and you can see wildlife as it should be. Superb is all I can say about it.

From the staff in the booking office, to the skipper and first mate on our boat, this whole outfit never missed a beat. It was excellent, fun, informative, and safe. They had thought of every detail, from wet weather coats to ginger travel tablets. If you only do one thing on Bruny, do this, you will not be disappointed.

Bitterly cold and windy on the day we had booked - wet weather gear provided was a must. Two children (8 and 10) loved the sealife and the boat itself, but had enough of the filthy weather and just rugged up in misery for trip back to dock. My elderly mother absolutely loved it(made of tougher stuff!) . I needed... More

The agenda is well arranged with bus, boat and meal. Taken the bus from kettinger car-park to adventure bar. During the cuisine, seen seal, penguins-like birds, group of Dolphins, breath-taking sea caves etc. Also, have brought us to chocolate factory and oyster drive thru in a military operation manner. Surely take the ginger pills for avoiding the seasick. Must see... More

The crew is fantastic, they are kind and have a good sense of humor. If they offer you the ginger pills take them! I was too confident, but got a bit seasick, because shooting too much action through my tele lenses. One of the crew members, a lovely (and attractive :P) blonde haired mermaid came to me and told me... More
