Don't miss this day tour, where you get to see and smell the seals, look toward Antactica, feel the swell of the great Southern Ocean and eat local oysters, cheese etc.

“Bruny Island”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

A lovely island full of spectacular views, great walks, clean air, fantastic sunsets and the stars at night...
Don't just go for the day, stay overnight at least

“World class scenery - don't skip if you go to Bruny Island”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

There are a couple of flavours for this trip. One departs Hobart - is a full day trip including lunch. The other is a 3 hour trip departing Adventure Bay on Bruny Island - which is part of the larger trip. We took the shorter, cheaper 3 hour excursion which is the scenic part. The boat is very open - ideal for photos - wouldn't be much fun in rough or rainy weather. You head south down Bruny Island coast which includes + 200 meter sea cliffs - stunning. Stop offs include several sea caves and a blow hole plus seal colonies where you are plenty close enough to both see and smell them! Overall I'd recommend this trip - its not cheap, but the scenery is remarkable and worth the splurge

“Watch the Weather”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

I'm sure Bruny Wildlife Adventures wants its clients to have a wonderful experience. However, if the weather is the least bit questionable don't spend the money. Our day out was miserable - rain and rough water spoiled the day. It was difficult to enjoy the scenery and the animals. I give credit to the guides, and the quality of their equipment and boats. Nevertheless they shouldn't have operated when the weather wasn't favorable.

“Knowledgeble and friendly staff on a good day tour!”
Reviewed May 8, 2011

A very interesting tour with knowledgable staff, enjoyable despite the strong winds and high swell (well timed giving out of the hand-warmers by the crew!) We had amazing views of the coastline and the seals were awesome! No dolphins or whales this time (slightly too early but I will be back to see these!) Slightly expensive, but well worth a trip.
