Had a great day discovering the delights, both culinary and scenic, of Bruny with our local guide Rick. It was a very well rounded tour where there were lots of great taste sensations, lots to see of the scenic Island with a little exercise thrown in to walk off the tasty seafood lunch that was included. Nothing was too much... More

What a great tour, the boats are roomy and they have all the gear (spray jackets etc) you need. We were lucky with moderate seas, but they were always conscious of passengers feeling a little seasick. They handed out tablets before we left and anytime anyone looked a little green, slowed the boat to make it easier. The skipper knew... More

I did the full day tour. I loved the actually cruise and the bus & ferry ride were scenic with friendly staff. The captain of our cruise was knowledgeable and easy going. The Bruny coast is well worth the trip. If you haven't watched the video on the website or tour company, you should.

This little adventure on an adroit boat filled with tourists is quite amazing. Views of the cliffs, the wildlife and the Great Southern Ocean. Dress warmly as even with the rain slicker on, it's a cold wind blowing up from the Antarctic.

the bruny island cruise is very well organised and gives a good opportunity to discover the tasman coastline even if the tasman peninsula cruise from Port Arthur is definitely more gorgeous

My husband, I and three children 14,14&11 did this cruise. We had a full boat and quite a calm day. The crew were very helpful and friendly. The views were spectacular, although with a bit more swell it would have been amazing, particularly the blow hole. Loved seeing the fur seal colony as well.

My wife, 9-year-old daughter and I absolutely loved this tour. Yes, it can be rough, and it's wet, but the raincoats provided are huge and the spray is part of the adventure. If you want a sedate cruise pass some pretty cliffs, this is not for you. Given that you're heading into the Southern Ocean, the weather is unpredictable, so... More

We were fortunate to have a warm and partly sunny day, but rough seas. They start with ginger tablets for those people who think that they may get sea sick. The ride was on rough waters as we traveled down to the South Sea. We saw many beautiful rock formations, blow holes and learned about the lichen. The seals were... More

We caught the bus from Hobart and headed out to Kettering for the tour. Nick the tour guide on the bus was entertaining and gave us all the local knowledge on the way to the cruise. I'm not sure if cruise is the right description for this boat trip - it was more and adventure ride. The scenery is spectacular... More
