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

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

This was the most wonderful value for money and on such a perfect sunny day in January. The cruise boat was spacious and then the trip over to Woodbridge where we had lunch was wonderful overlooking onto the bay and beautiful grass area. Restaurant was top notch with first class food and ambience.

The cruise itself was very interesting and the scenery was beautiful. The trip around the salmon stock ponds was remarkable especially seeing the boat that pumps the fish out of the stock ponds. We were in the captain's area topside and the extra cost was probably worth it for the better views from our window side seats. We stopped at... More

We spent a lovely day on this cruise, we have done this trip before a couple of years ago so I can say that the quality of this cruise is consistent. We had seating on the Captains deck and had seats next to the window, recommend if you book this deck see if you can secure a window seat. The... More

The view from the boat is pretty nice but the food when you get there is average at best, the town of Woodbridge is desolate and full of unfriendly people. It's a huge expensive waste of time if you ask me, but if you really want to relax and be forced to socialise with strangers whilst eating sub par food... More
