We did the bus tour from Hobart to Bruny back to Hobart which is very convenient for visitors without a car. Friendly people in the office and a nice lady bus driver who did a commentary. Folks at the front of the boat and on the sides do get wet, the waterproofs we were given are not totally impervious. But... More

The cruise was outstanding. We were given jackets so we wouldn't get cold or too wet. We also got the choice of taking ginger tablets for those that got sea sick. We saw dolphins, seals, albotrouses, caves and a blowhole! The crew guides we funny and always took care of us or others when needed. Highly recommend! :)

This tour by bus and boat was well organised and every contingency was covered. The guides are knowledgeable and really try to cater to individual interests as well as general info - nothing is too much trouble. The food was freshly made, warming and delicious. Photo opportunities are a highlight and they will try to give you plenty. Dress as... More

A wonderful experience. I would recommend taking a car when visitn Hobart as it is easy to find your way arround and very little traffic.. We drove down to Kettering and took the ferry accros to Bruny Island, a unique experience stopping off at the penguin colony. The cruises are very well organised even providing you with a full waterproof... More

Joined the tour at Kettering where they picked us up in a bus and carried us to their pier in south Bruny Island for the cruise. The cruise was simply amazing with sightings of dolphins/seals and breathtaking views of the coastline with cliffs and caves. We opted for The light lunch option with soup, bread roll and a drink as... More

Had a fantastic day with Bruny Island Cruises. Fabulous staff, amazing natural beauty and a fun adventure for all aboard. A little cold but with your orange coverall its very manageable. Offer of ginger tablets accepted by some but luckily a pretty smooth trip. Would imagine it would be very cold and bumpy in winter but would still do it.... More

Can see why this has won pretty much every award in Australian tourism. Simply stunning, unspoilt, wild and awesome part of the world. What we saw today is not duplicated anywhere else. Yes, it's cold, yes the sea is rough. But, that just adds to the amazing experience. You're nuts if you don't take this trip...would give it six stars... More

There are numerous reasons to positively gush over Tasmania’s Bruny Island, and one of the main reasons is Bruny Island Cruises. This three-hour trip, plunging beside a ragged coastline under constant assault by the Tasman Sea, is thrilling in more ways than one. First of all there are the boats: 12.5 rigid inflatables each with three powerful outboard motors that... More

We had so much fun & saw so much. Mick the tour guide was an absolute legend who knew his stuff & delivered with skill & humour. His driving skills were second to none & he wasn't afraid to keep us on the edge of our seats. Great fun & an awesome way to see Bruny island.

We caught the 9:30 am ferry from Kettering and drove 40 minutes through Bruny Island to Adventure Bay. Plenty of parking. Pre-order lunch an the staff have it ready when you get back, it was well priced and delicious. The boat trip was fantastic, mainly due to the unforgettable scenery and the excellent commentary.
