Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your Bruny Island day trip from Hobart starts with the approximate 45-minute coach drive from the city to the coast, where you’ll catch the ferry to Adventure Bay. During the drive, admire the scenery and listen to narration from your driver about points of interest.

When you reach Adventure Bay, enjoy fresh-baked muffins for morning tea before setting off on your 3-hour wilderness cruise around Bruny Island. With covered open-air seating, the custom-built adventure boat provides plenty of viewing opportunities of the wild coastline and, hopefully, sightings of local marine life. Your heart will race as you zoom between steep cliff faces, heading toward the Breathing Rock. See the treacherous location where the Southern Ocean meets the Tasman Sea, and keep your eyes open for dolphins, fur seals, sea eagles and maybe even a great white shark.

When your cruise returns to shore, warm up with a lunch of homemade soup and bread, and then end your day trip with the trip back to Hobart.

Best trip I’ve ever had as far as value, experience and knowledge. Tom was our tour guide and a great bloke to boot. Very knowledgeable and humorous. Bus trip with ferry was spectacular and the 3 hour boat trip was such an experience- thrilling, stunning scenery and seeing the seals was a real plus. Lunch and morning team were great - value exceptional. Will definitely do another trip when next down.

Majestic cliffs and stunning vistas were the order of the day. A total experience that I will never forget. Luke (our bus driver and tour guide) was a mine of information and had the tour group laughing on many occasions with his informative banter.. Lunch was absolutely delicious. I will be raving about this experience for some time to come.... A wilderness experience not to be missed!!!!

We'd done it before but wanted to give other family members the experience and certainly were not disappointed second time around. Capain Mick and the gang were perfect for the job ... organisation was crisp and skilled boat handling made for an exciting but safe trip. Food was great and everything ticked the boxes. Looked after my incapacitated brother well. Thoroughly recommend to everyone who can get into a boat...

The whole day was planned meticulously and ran like clockwork. The staff were extremely helpful and made our experience one of a kind. Their humour and attentiveness was exceptional. Our thanks to Hamish and Jamie for for sharing their experiences and love of the area which brought it to life for us. We enjoyed the thrills and laughs which the 3-4 metre waves and would do it again when back down south.

it should be excellent, however the weather was bad and when you can't change the booking inspite of the weather it is very sad. Wet, cold, unable to see as trying to protect yourself from the wet spray, rain and cold...I was surprised I wasn't allowed to move to the back being told that was for SICK people. We didn't stop much going south nor close to the rock as it was so bad. When we got to the seals the sun broke out which was a relief...Someone said he thought he would die. A girl was so sick with throwing up and wet and cold I felt sad and shared my photos as she was sick the whole trip. I asked to move into the sun on the way home to be told it would rain again , but that bit of sun on me made the world of difference ...very sad actually. We were wet before the jackets as we went up to the lookout at the neck..I would have thought as a duty of care the driver should have prevented that happening as if you are wet..the trip south in the boats would be very uncomfortable if you can't get warm...no one mentioned this , nor to prepare with many dry layers to stay warm ....I felt money was more important than safety

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide detailed feedback of your Bruny Island Cruise day tour. We are disappointed to hear that the experience did not meet your expectations. Operating in a remote coastal area the tour is subject to weather conditions. With bad weather we do give a weather warning and offer guests an opportunity to change dates or not to travel with a full refund. On this occasion a weather warning was given in Hobart before the bus departed and again at Bruny Island before the cruise. On our day tour we do stop at the iconic Neck Lookout. The guide on this day asked guests if they still wanted to stop at the Neck as it was raining and they did. However, guests were welcome to stay in the bus if they did not want to climb the stairs and avoid the rain. We do provide water and windproof jackets on our wilderness cruise but encourage all guests to dress warmly in layers, as it is a lot colder on the water. This information is included in our promotional information and on our booking confirmation. Please be assured that safety is our number one priority. Thank you again for taking the time to provide feedback. Best Regards Melinda Anderson
