What a wonderful boat trip! Rocks, cliffs, caves, blowhole and more! The scenery is fantastic. We enjoyed seeing the seals and the albatross'. At the end, the crew (who were very helpful and respectful) took off out to sea to where we saw two whales. Marvellous. The crew handed out ginger tablets at the start but fortunately, I don't think... More

Hey! How can you go wrong with Bruny Island anyways? A full days tour hitting many awesome food places. The gourmet foods are the max on this trip. Definitely for the oyster heads as I am one. Great cheese and whiskey too. Highly recommended the tour. -David

Firstly, I call this a boat trip rather than a cruise, because it travels with some speed in places and the thrill seeking 360 degree spins. This is a must do trip if you like getting wet (if you sit near the front), wildlife that includes seals,dolphins many birds and some fantastic coastline scenery. I decided to join the bus... More

It was great weather so our cruise was very pleasant. Fantastic views of incredible scenery and some wildlife. The crew were very professional -especially since we had other cruises to compare with. They handed out ginger tablets to be prepared for sea sickness which really was a good thing. The commentary was informative and amusing. As an award winning cruise... More

We were escorted to our cruise by Judy of Eye See Personalised Tours. What a memorable outing for our group of three. Not long after we set off we were delighted to view a Humpback whale and a pod of dolphins too. Then we headed south to view the many natural features along the island coastline, dolomite cliffs, caves, rock... More

What an amazing experience! I would highly recommend doing this cruise. First was the interaction with the staff, they were very friendly and helpful. The 2 guides we had on the boat were fun and informative. It was a bit of a bumpy ride on the boat but that was to be expected as the seas were choppy, a couple... More

Our family took this cruise ride end of Nov, on a windy but sunny day. The first two hours were nice and happy but there weren't that many things to see though, just some rocks, a few birds and seaweed. I must say though the guides were good as they looked after us well and we had lots of jokes... More

It starts with a busride of around one and a half hour. Then a three hour boattrip. The sea was rough, a lot of people got seasick. The promises of the brochure were not made true: no whales, no dolphins, no entering caves. Probably nice when it is warm and calm weather. The provided raingear did not keep us dry.... More

I went on the Full Day Tour from Hobart. Although the weather on the day wasn't too good, it was a great day. Started off by coach from Hobart at 8am and after visiting the historic areas of Salamanca and Battery Point we made our way down to Kettering to catch the car/bus ferry for the short 20 minute trip...
