We saw whales, dolphins, seals and array of sea birds. It was an extraordinary day hosted by friendly staff. Every effort was made to make us feel welcome and the commentary was knowledgeable and interesting. Our three young daughters loved every second of it and are begging us to take them back again! Sipping champagne at wineglass bay was a... More

We were fortunate enough to book the last cruise of the season on Saturday, 31st May and this cruise did not disappoint. The staff were exceptional, with their knowledge, commentary and attention to their guests. One of the highlights was the sighting of a whale which breached itself no less that 150 meters from the boat - amazing! Totally impressed... More

Loved this cruise. Staff were very helpful from time of booking to checking you in before departing. The staff taking this cruise were very informative and ensured everyone enjoyed their cruise. The staff ensured we did not get wet (even though you were wearing the wet weather gear) by lowering the plastic side screens then immediately lifted the screens so... More

Did the Wineglass Cruise on the 25th April 2014, Fantastic experience, well organised and the running commentary of the areas fauna and flora was exceptional. The lunch of local oysters, cheese and spread was tasty and adequate.

Just came back from the cruise this morning and wanted to write while it is still fresh. Everything about the cruise it great and better than expected. Everything is exactly as seen in the pics on the brochures, which at other places are very misleading. Easily the best dollars spent in Tasmania. Good - the dauphins, the trip, wineglass bay,...

We had SUCH a lovely day out on the Wineglass Bay Cruise. The sun was shining and the swells were quite tame. We even ended up ditching our waterproof jackets and jumpers because it was so warm - was not expecting to be able to do that. The crew were absolutely lovely - such nice guys, and knowledgeable about the... More

This was a great tour. It was a beautiful day. My only complaint, if I had one was....so close to the beach but we didn't get to walk on it. I know it's a lot to fit in to 4 hours and the guys tried their best to keep to a schedule for all on board so I give them... More

A great day out. The crew included Rastas the dog who was well tuned into Dolphin noises, Three times he barked and within seconds dolphins were swimming around the boat. He got so excited at one stage he jumped in and had a swim with them. Plenty of sea birds including albatross. Lots of seals dozing on the rocks. Very... More
