A small group of us were unwinding from 2 weeks of Ten Pin Bowling Nationals and chose this day cruise due to the value for money. For $98 we got the cruise down the Derwent to Peppermint Bay , with a scrumptious 4 course meal at the restaurant at Peppermint Bay. Friendly staff on the cruise and great commentary along... More

We were surprised with this beautiful cruise as part of our conference. I was a bit worried when we had the smaller of the two boats but wow what a great trip and the smaller boat was able to take us right up to the salmon ponds and explain the process involved which was great. They even had jackets you... More

The cruise includes about 2 1/2 hrs of cruising time altogether and 2 1/2 hrs at the restaurant. The views are great and you get to see seals swimming as well as fish and other marine life thanks to the underwater camera. A very pleasant way to spend the day in Hobart.

Recently did this cruise down to peppermint bay. Great views, services, food and wine to match. The staff were great and the commentary was very interesting with a short stop to view underwater the wildlife. The food at the winery did not disappoint. Will definitely recommend this to visitors to Hobart!

Agree with other reviewers that this is a wonderful day trip. The boat is very comfortable and the commentary on the way to Peppermint Bay was really interesting and informative. At one point an underwater camera was launched so we had a chance to see the surprisingly colourful underwater life. The cruise is a great way to take in all... More

A truly wonderful way to spend a few hours on the river Derwent and channel area. Andy Sarah and our Captain Peter were very informative and entertaining, the conditions on river were excellent and viewing on underwater camera was amazing! Our three course lunch was superb along with Tasmanian wines. We as Hobartians have visited Woodbridge many times by road... More

If you are looking for a fantastic days trip when in Hobart, I would thoroughly recommend the Peppermint Bay cruise/lunch. Full marks to Sarah and especially Andy for making the day great with their service, commentary and great customer service. The launch trip was very comfortable, plenty of room to move around ( various decks) and a bar/coffee service. Great... More

We were looking for something to do in Hobart on Sunday before we headed back to Sydney and walked past the Peppermint Bay Cruise office. We picked up a brochure and then did a trip advisor search. After reading the reviews we thought this is a must do cruise. Let me say this is just a wonderful way to see... More

We took the Peppermint Bay Cruise II from the Brook St Pier. First of all, the boarding point is very easy to find and it is so close to the Salamanca Market that we had time to explore the market before departing for the Pier at 10.30am. The cruise staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very efficient. There was an ongoing... More
