It was an exhilarating experience, filled with much humour and history. You are well looked after by folks who are knowledgeable and interesting, they seem to really enjoy their work. The 3 hour boat trip, was fantastic, could have stayed out longer, views from the water are spectacular, stopping often for photos, with the occasional burst of speed. A trip... More

The day was very entertain and full of knowledge of the area. The trip took around 3 hours and was very informative and got to see 2 whales as well. Highly recommend to do.

The entire experience was terrific; from our booking at Tassie Tourist Centre through to the drop-off at our B&B by the tour company. It was a 1 hour coach trip with our driver-guide (very funny running commentary on the way down to meet the boat made the trip enjoyable and short). An exhilarating boat trip experiencing this remarkably spectacular coastline... More

Wow! Wow! Wow! The very accommodating cruise company allowed us to change our booking to enable us to travel on the best day weather wise. I was neither prepared for where we went or what we saw. When you first see your transport, you think - "we're going to sea in that!!!!" It was a lot smaller than I imagined.... More

I was impressed by the knowledge of staff, and their patience with everybody. They took time to speak with everyone on the boat including looking after us who were sick. I recommend taking strong motion sickness tablets as the ones they offered us didn't do the job for many people. Overall the views and wildlife were amazing. Very blue and... More

For the past few hours I've been thinking of how to rate my experience today. I want to give an accurate representation without any bias. I did the full day trip from Hobart today. Staff: Second to none. From the moment our bus driver Kate picked us up from Hobart I knew I was in good hands. Very knowledgeable of... More

My husband and I did the 11am to 2pm Bruny Island Cruise with our 3 children. We were a bit worried about sea sickness so decided to take a travacalm tablet just in case. None of us were sick at all. We had a fantastic experience. They provide full length rain coats and you need to use them as you... More

I would highly recommend this activity to anyone who is in Hobart/Tasmania. We went on a wet, cold day and it was great. The suits that were supplied kept us warm and make sure you get some gloves and a beanie! Very informative crew who knew a lot about the local wildlife and nature. We were even lucky enough to...

I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone visiting Bruny Island. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and funny. We had very cold, windy and wet weather yet it was still one of the highlights of our trip to Tassie. Well worth the experience - don't miss it!

I bought the Full Day Bruny Island Tour which included a bus ride from Hobart's Franklin Wharf to Kettering where we took a vehicular ferry to Bruny Island for the highlight of the tour - a 3-hr eco cruise. Lovely morning tea & healthy lunch were included in the tour too. It was a shame the day was gloomy and... More
