We did this trip to Perppermint Bay on Boxing Day and treated ourselves to the upper deck. A great day out, very relaxing, and very comfy seats on the deck upstairs. Drinks can be purchased, from coffee to champagne. Informative commentary, and a very relaxing ride. Peppermint Bay itself is lovely, great scenery. The restaurant was amazing, the food delicious,...

I booked the tour for a Sunday in the expectation that I would have an enjoyable cruise and a pleasant lunch. Turns out this is a way of getting people to the restaurant by a glorified water taxi. The Captain's Bridge was a total waste of time. It was full of rude and semi drunk Tasmanians who were obviously recovering... More

As the title suggests - we had a Sunday afternoon with a lovely cruise down the derwent. I enjoyed the meal and the service was good, but I wouldn't do this the time.

Had a wonderful day cruising to Peppermint Bay. We were fortunate to see a number of seals and pods of dolphins which swam in the wake of the boat. The commentary by the captain and the guide was informative and were warm and friendly. The lunch at Woodbridge was excellent, especially the oysters which were marinated with Apple. We were...

We took the NYE cruise to Peppermint Bay, leaving the docks at Hobart at 5.30pm, sailing 1 hour south to Woodbridge for dinner in the lovely restaurant overlooking the bay, then returning in time to enjoy the fireworks over Hobart harbour from the deck of the catamaran floating off shore. A very special experience indeed. We were plied with champas... More

A must do cruise if you want a relaxing day on the water and like good food. Peter, the captain and the crew kept us amused and informed throughout the day.

We had friends visiting from Munich and we wanted to show them some of the best of the area. The best of the bunch was the cruise to Woodbridge on the Peppermint Bay II. The extra few bucks for the Captain's deck was well worth it. The meal at Woodbridge was excellant and - since we chose the date that... More

Ok trip. No underwater cameras as advertised (disappointing as had kids). Although booked and paid for 2 children (2&12. And not cheap) there was no placement at restaurant for them. Squished onto a table then had to ask for food. Set menu which was totally not kid friendly. Was then questioned if we paid for them!!! A little kid platter... More
