What a fantastic day this was. From the time we met till the time we got dropped off the guides and the day was perfect. 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

In short, this was a fantastic day recommended and booked for us by friends who live locally. We travelled from Hobart which gave us an opportunity on a very quick trip to Tassie to see a bit more countryside. Our tour guides could not have been bettered and I can honestly say that in all the tours I have done... More

We've booked a pick-up from Kettering for the 3 hour cruise so we can make sure there was a parking spot for our hire car and also had a nice look around the waterfront of this coastal town. The staffs of the cruise were all very nice and attentive and offered you the ginger tablet to help with sickness, the... More

Fantastic day seeing the island from a different angle. Even though it was the middle of winter and the wind was cold, we were snug and warm in our orange spray suits provided by the team. The guides were knowledgable and kept up a steady flow of information. A bit of daredevil driving between the rocky outcrops provided thrills and... More

Full day tour from Hobart. Long bus ride to the Island, cross on a ferry. However, the guide made the trip fun and interesting. The cruise was a wonderful way to view the awesome scenery and wildlife. Unfortunately no whales or dolphins on this trip, but you can't have everything! The lunch was quite good too, with the BEST pumpkin... More

We went with Bruny Island Cruises for the boat trip - and were very impressed with the whole experience. Top staff, excellent boat and a really fun and worthwhile experience to see the geography from the sea. As we were staying on Bruny Island, we took the advice to go with the afternoon trip - fewer people and so less... More
