Beautiful Cruise

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.

Had an excellent day on the cruise - last minute mothers day treat and we were quickly accommodated in the Captains Upper Deck. Isabelle in the office very helpful!! Was a little disappointed by the Captains Upper Deck experience - seats were really cramped in and felt very airline like. No extra inclusions, a welcome drink or at least free... More

Beautiful scenery, comfort, fine food and excellent commentary from the Skipper made for a most enjoyable experience. The cruise staff were very helpful and all-in-all it was a trip we would definitely do it all over again. Thank... More

Perfect weather gave us a very enjoyable trip and with Lunch. The Captain pointed out and explained many interesting places on the way to Peppermint Bay. Well worth the cost of booking the Captains Upper Deck
