This is a really good day out. 90 minutes on the boat gives you chance to experience Hobart and surrounding districts from the water and learn a bit about the area. Then two hours in Peppermint Bay with a great three course lunch before the return boat trip. Our lunch consisted of a smoked meat platter with nuts and olives... More

I boarded the cruise on a cloudy day, so I knew the scenery would not be at its best. I was with 9 other passengers in a group, and the first irritation was that I was told not to move my seat until the boat was underway - mistakenly, I had taken a seat at the back, and then was... More

Cruise good, commentary good. Lunch however at Woodbridge a little disappointing. Hot lamb could have been served with some vegetables, soup tasteless and watery, Bread lovely, oysters great. All a little overpriced for the day out.

Andy and the crew provided friendly and professional service. We loved the whole experience from cruising down the Derwent, the commentary and underwater camera to a most delicious lunch at Peppermint Bay. Such a beautiful spot. Had a great day! Highly recommended!

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
