This is value for money. Four hours of breathtaking scenery and great informative commentary. A very comfortable boat with a superb bento box lunch thrown in at Wineglass bay... Who could ask for anything more. Oh did I mention the pod of 200+ dolphins? Sensational!

We loved this trip even though it is a very long day if you drive from Hobart. The views are great but wineglass bay did not live up to my expectations. I think that it is probably better to see from above when bushwalking. The staff on the boat were fantastic and great fun. We spotted seals and a sunfish... More

We were lucky that we picked a great weather day for our cruise as it gave us opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the scenery and wildlife all well described by the superb crew who could not have been more helpful. The first part of the cruise from Coles Bay is calm pulling in to see various points of interest... More

I was lucky enough to enjoy a cruise with Wine Glass Bay Cruisers. The vessel was immaculate, a credit to the crew and owners. Safety brief was professional and was made interesting. The skipper gave a very informative narrative of all the points of interest as we cruised towards them. Also took the time to stop and inform the passengers... More

The commentary was really informative and even though we didn't see any whales or dolphins we saw an abundance of bird life, fur seals , waterfalls coming down after the rain the previous day and many other points of interest which...

We were blessed with good weather for this fantastic trip and an added bonus was sightings of humpback whales migrating to Antarctica - will never be forgotten.The crew were knowledgeable and extremely helpful, the scenery incredible, with sightings of bird-life and seals. For those who suffer seasickness, as I do, you should be aware that this cruise goes out to... More

I did get sea sick , however this did not change my opinion of the cruise, our 12 year old daughter had a ball and enjoyed every moment! Thank you to the caring crew when I was unwell :) Best to take travel calm... More

I wish I had read more Trip advisor comments before booking this trip. I am not a good sailor, and found the trip too rough. A number of passengers were ill, as is often the case now I read other comments. Perhaps a warning could be written on the advertisements. The staff were extremely helpful, but I couldn't face eating... More

A great boat ride. Plenty to see. Not for those who are susceptible to a bit of sea sickness. Very nice lunch. Friendly and informative crew.

This cruise is excellent...it's the full package...stunning views, informative commentary, yummy ploughman's lunch and for those who like a drink, there is a bar. Couldn't get over the stunning scenery...soaring cliffs, craggy mountains, islands, lichen covered rocks, and beautiful white beaches. In regards to the wildlife we got to experience penguins, seals, ganets and a shy albatross. The atmosphere on... More
