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.

The tour leaves Hobart at 8am and it is a bus ride,ferry and then more time on the bus. About 21/2 hours. Morning tea is provided at the launch spot. The boat is a large inflatable dinghy with a roof and seats, no closed in area. Not a cruise by definition. This tour is for people who love rock formations... More

We started off our day (8am) being picked up by Lee our tour host who instantly made everyone on the bus feel relaxed and ready for a day of enjoyment. When we were picked up the weather was extremely foggy and not expected to clear for some time. We were a bit worried as we had seen photos of the... More

An experience that has to be on your No1 if you travel to Tasmania. The knowledge that Lee and Julie talk about makes you realise that this island holds so many secrets. The weather on our travel day was pure magic, the weather gods shined that day. The ocean was on her best behaviour allowing us to be totally enthralled... More

We got to learn about the areas we drove through, got to see Bruny Island and the cruise was awesome, with a bonus of dolphins as well. Big thanks to Lee and Julie who made... More

This is an experience you must have whilst holidaying in Tasmania. Everything about this cruise is simply world class. From the moment you arrive, 'til the moment you leave, the professionalism from the staff, guides and the café, makes you feel as though these people know what they are doing, especially the boat guides who do everything possible to ensure...

We did the 3 hour eco cruise with Bruny Island and what a fantastic trip. Where to start! The scenery is spectacular. I didnt realise we had anything like it in Australia. Certainly opened my mind up. I really thought 3 hours would be quite long but it's definitely worth it. The scenery changes so much in that time. One... More

What an amazing 3 hours. Those with a delicate stomach may reconsider this adventure. We were on a break and drove to Adventure bay ensuring we had an early breakfast. Wind in the face, ocean spray, amazing coastal vistas and incredible sea life. Boats are fantastic, skipper knew his stuff and staff were excellent. This is an in your face... More

We did the 3 hour Eco cruise at Bruny Island and it was the most incredible experience. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgable and really made the trip. The boat and it's facilities were top class. We were treated to the Great Southern Ocean, rock formations only seen by the privileged few, seals, blowholes, whales frolicking and spectacular scenery... More
