Worth the money. it was an great cruise. not only did we see the fabulous coastline, landscape and seals, we were also fortunate enough to see a whale. Our cruise drivers were very entertaining and full of great knowledge and information. Highly recommend the trip that we did from Bruny Island.

Totally recommend this tour run by absolute professionals every step of the way; and people who clearly care about the environment and man's impact on it. Stunning scenery, sheer cliffs surrounded by crashing seas. We watched seals at play but also saw them rounding up fish, as a pack, providing a feeding frenzy for not only the seals but also plenty of birds too. The water was, we were told, unusually calm - only a 1.5m swell which is apparently quite rare. We aim to go back when the seas are a bit wilder to see the comparison. Highly recommended.

We have just returned from what was one of the most exciting & interesting trips we have experienced. This was worth every cent of the money to do. If you do nothing else whilst in Tassie do this & Port Arthur BUT allow a day each. We did both in 2 days & it was just long enough. The 2 Damo's (skipper & deckhand) were excellent. Very knowledgeable, friendly & fun. Gave the people on the tour a great day out & are a credit to their company. Ginger tablets were handed out for those who wanted them to combat sea sickness.
Two suggestions for future travellers:-
1. Bring lots of jumpers, jeans, enclosed shoes, beanies & gloves; it gets very cold out there.
2. If you get off the boat at Port Arthur catch the free bus. It is a long walk up a steep hill after 3 hours on a boat.

Amazing experience, we had a rough ride into a weather front, it was rough and cold BUT every minute worth it to see the awe inspiring landscape. We saw dolphins, fur seals, many albatross and other sea birds. Guide Kane and captain Tim were awesome, knowledgeable, funny and kept a close eye on every single passenger. Definitely worth it. Travel sickness tablets worked for my three children while others succumbed. Make sure you wear your woollies it really does get cold and wet out there.
