We were on board the Crested Tern this morning with Mike and Malcolm. Enjoyed their banter, and their stories and information about the places they showed us. We had the full nature experience - seals and dolphins were the stand outs but add to that crested terns, cormorants, albatross AND seagulls and we were happy campers! As if that wasn't... More

Went on the morning trip in what turned out to be some of the calmest conditions they have seen there for yonks. Sat right at front of boat with 10 and 11 year old in the very front row. We all really enjoyed it and it was fine for the kids. It's exciting as the boat goes very fast and... More

What a sensational day we had. Staff were excellent and knowledgable. Boats were comfortable - not one person was seasick. Scenery and wild life was amazing. Catered for all ages and abilities. Lunch was awesome and good value. Make sure you have warm clothing as it can be cold. Highly recommend doing this.

This 3 hour cruise was amazing! Thanks to our excellent Captain, Belinda (? Sorry it's been a while), she showed us Bruny Island like we would never have seen for ourselves. She was a thoroughly competent and entertaining host and we loved every second of our cruise. Particular note to Rob - we're so grateful for you providing the weatherproof... More

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my partner and he absolutely loved it. (I didn't go as I get seasick) The views and wildlife were amazing and the photos he came home with were excellent. Be warned though, it's not good if you are prone to sea sickness! The provide the rain jackets to keep dry.
