This is a recommended tour if interested in nature and adventure. The tour starts early morning and the bus takes you to Bruny island. Tea is served and the boat adventure starts. Very adventurous and the guide make is all the more interesting. Lunch is served on return. Pumpkin Soup was really good. Would highly recommend it

$380 for family of 4 plus $33 ferry ride plus 40 min drive from Hobart to ferry, then another 40 min to "cruise". We were really looking forward to this, made special effort to get there and it was a terrible experience. Saw some rock cliffs, seaweed and cormorants (big wow!), and finally some sleeping seals. They returned us over... More

My son & I were staying at Adventure Bay on Bruny Island & we booked into this 3 hour cruise experience for $135 each. It was absolutely worth the money!! The staff were up beat, professional, organised & friendly. Our skipper handed out ginger tablets before we set off to combat any motion sickness and was very witty & very... More

If heading to Bruny, this cruise is an absolute must! Our family including two kids, aged 5 and 8, had a fantastic time. We had Chris and Anna as our expert crew who could tell us all about the amazing geology of the towering cliffs, sea caves and blowholes. The scenery is amazing and best appreciated from the water. We... More

In this exciting wilderness cruise we spent 3 hours travelling down the coast of Bruny Island to the Great Southern Ocean and back. The ruggedness of the coastline was a highlight as well as the Australian and New Zealand fur seals we observed. We also saw lots of sea birds and a pod of dolphins. A great must see trip... More

Staff are friendly, helpful, informative and entertaining. The island tour is outstanding in itself but the staff really make the trip so much more value by providing both information and courteous assistance. The scenery is fantastic but the staff really make it an enjoyable and rewarding memorable experience. Not to be missed --- even if the weather is a tad... More

I have been in over 120 countries but found this trip one of the best tours my wife and I have ever been on. 0845 - We were dropped off by family at the Oyster Bay Marina and started the tour from there. The bus from Hobart was a little late as Nick, the driver, had stopped to help at... More

We travelled to Tasmania with two teens and planned to do this boat cruise after reading the reviews here. We met the bus at Kettering and travelled over to Bruny Island on the vehicle barge. The bus driver, Fin, was quite pleasant and gave us a commentary about the island on the the way to Adventure Bay. Once we arrived,... More

What a great experience. It started with our hosts offering us ginger tablets for free. And then pointed out that we would gladly pay $100 each tablet an hour from now. And that set the tone for the day. Our tour hosts really did make the trip both informative & fun. We had a fairly rough run for weather down... More
