Not sure if this is the correct place for this review but recently enjoyed a work function with cruise and dinner at Peppermint Bay. The cruise is long 40mins - hour from memory we went just before sunset and the light and scenery was amazing so made for a very enjoyable trip to our dinner venue. Venue itself has a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed cruising to Peppermint Bay in the Captain's cabin with complementary drinks, canapés etc while enjoying the scenery and commentary. Lunch at the restaurant was beautifully presented and delicious view very relaxing. I would recommend this cruise.

My only disappointment was the lack of choice of food at the restaurant at Peppermint Bay. We were asked upon entering the vessel if we had any food requirements or intolerances, but we were not advised what the meals were. My husband and I both do not eat lamb, which of course was the main course. We advised the helpful... More

The cruise boat itself was nice and clean the staff were friendly but the chairs in the middle of the boat were so uncomfortable and span around when you sat on them! The meal included in the price at peppermint bay was very VERY basic.. Bread and butters / ham and hummus for entree.. And a bowl of meat and... More

We chose the Upper Deck. The staff were friendly, respectful and informative. The CAT was clean and comfortable. The slow roasted lamb for lunch was delicious and the restaurant very contemporary and inviting. However the 1 inch square salted caramel slice for dessert is a bit of a stretch of the imagination to be described as a 3rd course. It... More

Booked this lunch cruise on a mild 20C day and headed down the Derwent for Peppermint Bay about 10.30am. Didn't opt for the Captains Deck and didn't feel we'd missed out on anything as everyone had to pay extra for Tea, Coffee etc which should really be included at the cost. When booking we were told only centre seating was... More

This will be a New Years Eve to remember. The cruise down to Peppermint started with champagne as we watched the sunset. The views were spectacular. On arrival we enjoyed canapés on the lawn over looking the bay. The jazz band was incredible and the food was even better. The selection show cases the beautiful Tasmanian cuisine which was accompanied... More

Relaxing trip on boat directed to Peppermint Bay. We departed from Hobart (on the central wharf), then headed towards the bay. I was sitting on the Captain's deck, but sincerely apart from the seats which were more comfortable, didn't find a big difference between the Captain's deck and the main deck. I expected better viewing (as I was seated in... More
