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

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

We had a great day out , kids loved seeing the seals . After seeing some of the accomodation on Bruny we were disappointed we didn't book a night or two that would be my tip if I went again rather than rush down from Hobart and back again in the afternoon

We were recommended this tour by a friend and it was simply amazing. Run exceptionally, staff were fantastic, very knowledgeable and hilarious! Got to see some amazing wildlife (whales!!) and absolutely stunning scenery. Would hands down recommend this to anyone visiting Bruny island. Well done to you all. Helen and Chris.

Up bright and early with a few moans and groans from the kids and off to Kettering to meet up with the bus from Bruny Island Cruises. Greeted by our awesome tour guide Hannah and off to the ferry we go. Loved the ride over and then the ride to the Jetty to board the boat. A couple of safety... More

From the time Nick picked us up on the bus and took us across on the ferry, till when he dropped us back to our car...we were catered for, looked after and kept warm, dry and entertained by all staff and the wonderful things we were there to see. We didn't see dolphins or whales...the seals were beautiful to watch...but... More

If you want action, amazing scenery and awesome animals then you must do the Bruny Island cruise to the Petticoat Wilderness. It starts at the café where you will have morning tea (best Gluten free muffins EVER), order your delicious lunch for when you return and meet the very experienced crew members. Then its off on the high powered boat... More

Must visit for first-timers. Guide is knowledgeable and patient. We were given ginger pills to survive motion sickness. We cruised along the Tasman Sea and Southern Ocean. Saw a seal colony. We were lucky to bump into dolphins as well. Very memorable cruise.

This cruise was the highlight of our Tasmanian tour. Breathtaking, words cannot describe. Very professional crew. If you visited Tasmania and did not take this tour you have two choices: come back and take it, or kill yourself!!

From the moment we walked into the Bruny Island Cruises office, and were met by Traci and Ken, my sister and I knew we were in for a good few hours. Traci was so welcoming and helpful, and Ken's blueberry muffins (which we bought for morning tea) were hot out of the oven, and scrumptious!!!! Before we left on our... More
