My partner and I took the Peppermint Bay day cruise, lunch was optional, we decided we would experience what was on offer as well. It was Sunday the 21st August and the weather was perfect that was a bonus and not optional so we were very lucky. The staff on board are friendly and welcoming. The Captains local knowledge was...

Loved the whole day. We paid extra for the captains cruise & the views and extra commentary made it worthwhile. Lovely lunch at Woodbridge.

My wife and I did the 'Captains Deck' lunch cruise a couple of days ago. What a fabulous experience that was. A wonderful cruise with a very well informed 'skipper' in Rob. The on-board crew were great. (Management, Ryan should be a 'keeper'!!!). The lunch at the Peppermint Bay Hotel was simple 'scrummy'!! I cannot recommend this trip highly enough.........a... More

A great way to see the harbour and enjoy a pleasant meal at an amazing restaurant. The cruise offers some great photo opportunities. One of the highlights of our Tassie Holiday.

We found this cruise through the Franklin website, and thought it might be a nice way to enjoy lunch and see more of the surrounding area. We should have stuck with Franklin. The boat was cramped, the restaurant is run down, lunch was unexciting and the long queues for the cash bar didn't help. Would avoid.

The weather didn't detract at all from the beautiful views and great multitalented crew. Grey skies but smooth passage. The midday lunch at Peppermint Bay was ample, in fact we all over- ate.

With 6 kids/ partners & 2 grandkids plus 2 oldies like us there was a big chance that somebody would be cranky! Not so , warm boat & staff + hearty food @ Peppermint Bay Tavern + great scenery was fantastic on a cold Tassie arvo.

Dessert was salted caramel fudge which... More

Relaxing boat trip although the commentary on the day we went was a little uncertain. The meal was a major disappointment and this was echoed by the group we sat with. The dessert consisting of a caramel lolly, I daren't call it a caramel sweet for fear of giving the wrong impression, was a little embarrassing as we,local's, were seated... More

Just loved this cruise, highly recommend it. The service was great from the time we picked up our tickets, till we disembarked 5 hours later. The food was delicious and at no time did we feel rushed.
