This was a great trip from Coles Bay to Wineglass Bay.Try and pick a day that the wind is light.A comfortable fast boat with very friendly staff.Lunch on boat was fantastic and the.scenery the best you can get .Trip starts at 10.00 am and returns about 3pm.You normally get to see Dolphins and many flying fish and birds.

We had a beautiful day and weather for our cruise which is always a bonus. The boat is large enough so that you can move around. The crew are fantastic and very knowledgeable about Freycinet. The lunch supplied is great that it is made of local produce but is probably not to everyone's taste although they do supply a child's... More

Enjoyable trip from the perspective of great views and lots of dolphins, and stunning rock formations and colours when the sun is shinning and friendly crew...however, about 20% of people were sea sick and spent most of their time feeding the fish rather than watching them! Also the lunch was very disappointing; no scallop pie as advertised but processed cold... More

Taking this boat tour was a lucky backup plan. I hurt my ankle and couldn't join a walking tour up to the lookout point, so we took the boat tour instead. What a winner! It was great. We got to see dolphins both on our way to and from Wineglass Bay. There was also lots of other animals like seals... More

Having loved the Gorden River Cruise in Strahan the description of cruising around Wineglass Bay here at Coles Bay spotting Dolphins, seals, penquins and sea birds sounded idyllic. However unless you are a very good sailor, DO NOT GO! even on a calm day the huge swell of the Tasman Sea caused not only my husband but many other passengers... More

Magnificent scenery and wildlife. We loved the pod of dolphins that swam with us in wineglass bay. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Unfortunately, the scallop pie wasn't part of lunch and had been replaced with cold meats. Apart from that, lunch was good.

Great cruise and wonderful staff. Lovely views and knowledgeable crew. Did have quite rough seas once out past the heads and many people got sea sick. Otherwise well worth the trip, consider you sea legs before booking.

We were blessed with great weather so enjoyed a perfect cruse! Even had a pod of dolphins playfully swim beside us!! The crew were all fantastic making us feel welcomed and relaxed. We heard clear information about safety, where all the boats amenities & bars were. Great informative commentaries during the 4hour cruise, from wildlife, whaling history, local history and... More
