“Wow. Wow. Wow.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

What a perfect way to see the beautiful Wine Glass Bay & Freycinet Peninsula.

Unless you are a bushwalker or hiker, you will never see the bay like this. Pristine coastline, crystal clear water.. Something I will never forget.

Duncan & Jason are both great guys, very well informed about the area & not opposed to having a friendly laugh. They do their bosses justice.

A must do experience while in the area. You will not find anything like it anywhere else.

“Wineglass Bay Cruises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Recently we had a fabulous trip on Wineglass Bay with Duncan and Jason. It was outstanding! We had glorious weather and a fun trip. Duncan is a mine of information, his knowledge of local history and geography was outstanding. Both guides were passionate about the area. They were informative without being overbearing. It was great having spray jackets supplied. We are three well travelled people and the trip was a highlight of our terrific stay in Tassie. The drinks and nibbles were excellent, you have the best plastic cups in the world. I would highly recommend this delightful trip with an outstanding crew! Please keep your boats the size they are. i don't want to go on a liner with hordes of tourists. Many thanks. Louise Ward

“Highlight of our Tasmanian trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Great experience, our teenage son loved it, especially all the dolphins swimming alongside the boat and leaping out of the water. We also saw seals and albatross and enjoyed the tour guide's commentary as well as the resident dog. Had glorious weather luckily. The snack was appreciated but advise you to take along some sandwiches or something if you can. Unfortunately the trip back was a little rough for some who were prone to sea sickness. Guide went out of his way to stay with the dolphins for longer though, hence the quick return trip. Best way to see Wineglass Bay. We thought it was worth the cost.

“Provides a different perspective of Freycinet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Friendly, professional crew who went out of their way to ensure an enjoyable trip for everyone. Loved seeing the local landmarks from the ocean...you gain a totally different perspective of the landscape. Saw some local wildlife as well. Worth the ticket price!

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

The skipper and his crew were fantastic. The boat is very comfortable and you are very well looked after. We were fortunate to be surrounded by dolphins most of the way as we sailed around the Frechinet penninsula. The skipper gave a very interesting and knowlegable commentary along the way. The weather was glorious but it still was cool on deck. Wear layers and a windproof jacket - they provide them if you don't have one. This is an absolute must if you don't suffer sea sickness.
