We traveled to Bruny Island for the express purpose of taking the Wilderness Cruise. While waiting between checking in & boarding we had morning tea - muffin and coffee. You can order lunch ahead, ready upon your return from the cruise. Experiencing Tasmania's rugged coastline can only be appreciated fully from the sea and in the hands of an experienced... More

Was money well spent, very entertaining crew Mike and Mel. Very considerate towards our special needs daughter who was anxious, they showed a lot of patience. The information was very informative, the commentary was funny and the sights were spectacular. Nothing was boring about this trip.

Very friendly tour guides. The boats are very clean and fast. For the smoothest ride sit in the very back where there are views out the back and the side, Very comfortable.ride as the boat is much more stable in the stern. For people who like the bumps and sea spray sit down near the bow. Suggest the lunch pack... More

This is the second time we have been on this truly spectacular tour. This time we got the shuttle bus from Hobart so we saved on car hire and ferry costs. Our guide Lee was the perfect guide, very friendly and knowledgeable so we were informed and entertained on the trip down to Adventure Bay. Morning tea was nice, perfect... More

We have been looking forward to Bruny island Cruise since we saw it on TV a number of years ago and it didn't disappoint. The staff were fantastic, both in their professional approach and knowledge of the local area. It was windy and cold with 4 meter swells however never did we feel in danger due to the boat crew's...

This was a fantastic adventure, all decked out in wet weather gear to protect us from the spray and I think the COLD. An amazing adventure in The Great Southern Ocean. The best scenery, big ocean seals and the blow hole to top it off. A fantastic trip. Good value.

This boat tour was about on par with ones I've taken in New Zealand. If you love being on boats and speeding past scenery with plenty of stops for wildlife like birds and seals, this fits the bill. The blowhole was cool, cliffs were beautiful, seals were great, and it was so wonderful that we encountered a pod of dolphins... More

I never thought I would find myself in the Southern Ocean with a 4 metre swell but that's exactly what I did. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise with Steve and Andrew. We didn't luck in with dolphins or whales but we did see the seals, Australian gannets and numerous Shy Albatross, which was a treat. My husband... More
