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

A beautiful day out on the water, cruising to Peppermint bay. The crew were knowledgable and friendly but the best part was the dining experience. Sharing a table with other cruisers is a lovely way to meet new people. We had a delicious plate of pate and terrine, followed by tasty fresh oysters and then the lamb. Beautiful, tasty melt... More

The Peppermint Bay cruise (April 2) was very pleasant - a rainy morning led to a sunny day - and informative. Andy, the dynamic guide (as well as waiter at lunch), gave us lots of interesting information. On the way out we paused at the Alum Cliffs - amazing geological formations - and coming back at the fish farms with... More
