We were celebrating a 50th birthday and booked the Captain's Deck for three. The captain was very informative and friendly. The seats very comfortable but you couldn't stay in your seat for too long as you had so many sights to see before you arrived at Peppermint Bay for a delicious lunch. The return trip was just as nice just... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. The catamaran was roomy with plenty of inside and outside options for enjoying the cruise. The scenery was beautiful and their were several stops to highlight points of interest along the way. Lunch at the Peppermint Bay restaurant was outstanding. Couldn't ask for a better day out.

The cruise is a great way to get another perspective of Hobart & south to the D'Entrecasteaux Channel with some great features on some of the cliff like banks and a close look at one of the salmon farm fish pen areas. The cruise boat is extremely comfortable and warm with good inside seating and outdoor deck areas. Espresso coffee... More

We are locals and were given this experience as a gift by our family. We had a wonderful day seeing our city from a completely different perspective and the background information given by the captain was informative. We learnt a lot! The crew were very friendly and helpful. We appreciated the opportunity to stop at points of interest along the... More

The Peppermint Bay Cruise and lunch was in every way fantastic. Weather was superb. Cruise trip informative. We saw the sea eagle and nest, salmon fishery and Iron Pot lighthouse. Lunch was great. Service was spot on and very friendly. Well done to all. I fully recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing day out.

We were very lucky to have such a beautiful, sunny day for our cruise. The views of the water, city, hills and cliffs were amazing! The ship slows down at points of interest and they do explain everything that you are seeing over the loud speaker. We requested a vegan meal and tried to keep our expectations low. We were... More

While the boat trip over to Peppermint Bay was okey. ignoring the fact that 2 children were sea sick and the Crew were unsympathetic and left the cabin with a strong odour. The meal was dissappointing as there was no choice and there was no seperate meal for children . We were seated on tables of 8 and as the... More

I am sorry to hear that our cruise did not live up to your expectations. The standard option for the Peppermint Bay Cruise is the inclusive lunch at the restaurant where our chefs showcase fresh local produce. We endeavour to ask all guests upon check in whether there are any food allergies or dietary requirements so that we can cater... More

If you enjoy both the exhilaration and relaxation of sea travelling then I highly recommend this half day cruise. The well appointed catamaran, extremely clean with comfortable seating and friendly crew, departed Sullivans Cove on time and we headed south along the Derwent River towards the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. The views of Hobart, Mt Wellington and surrounds, Bruny Island etc was... More

While the boat is nice and the cruise pleasant, I expected something different from their speil on the website, which mentions an underwater camera - didnt see this at all. On arrival we were shepherded into the restaurant, while it has amazing views and is a stunning building, we were seated on a long table on the lower level with... More

It is a shame to read that you did not enjoy your day with us. Firstly, thank you for bringing the underwater camera to our attention. We no longer use this camera and unfortunately this was an oversight on our end as it was not removed when we updated our online itinerary. This has now been rectified. The day you... More
