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.

Should NOT go in questionable weather
Larry
, Jun 2022
The shards of rain hitting our faces took away from what should have been a very pleasant experience. We should never have gone out in that weather and they knew what weather was coming telling us to prepare for it with our plastic "condoms" to shield us from the wind and rain. We found it hard to enjoy and they offered us what we had already ordered and paid for for lunch- pumpkin soup as an extra.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear Larry Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback on your Bruny Island Cruises experience. We are disappointed to hear it did not meet your expectations. As we operate in a remote environment we are subject to weather conditions. We do understand that rain is not ideal on a cruise experience. We try hard to evaluate the forecast on bad weather days to give guests a good understanding of what the conditions will be on the day so the guest is aware of what to expect and can make a decision on whether or not to participate in the cruise. We do provide full refunds if guests choose not to go and are flexible if they would like to change dates. We provide waterproof jackets made of a nylon fabric to protect guests from rain and wind. Please be assured we not operate our cruises if the weather conditions prove unsafe. Thank you again for taking the time to pass on your feedback. We really appreciate it. Best Regards Melinda

We had glorious weather for this trip which helped enormously as it can get very cold on the boat. We bought a couple of the hand warmers which were very handy. The drive from Hobart to Kettering was lovely and we got to see even more of Tasmania. Our driver was very entertaining and the coach was great. The coach drives onto the ferry and the crossing is only 10-15 minutes so no need to get off if you don't want. We stopped a Truganini Lookout at Rookery which was a welcome break to stretch our legs and go to the loo. Then on to Adventure Bay where we had tea and cake before getting into our gear and climbing aboard one of the boats. There were three boats going out but they don't hang about together. The boat trip was the best part of the day and our captain was hilarious; we had an exceptional time. We were fortunate to see a white breasted sea eagle, Australian fur seals and New Zealand fur seals. The wet weather gear (and our warm clothes) kept us warm and dry. Then it was back to Adventure Bay for a fish and chip lunch and then back to Hobart via the Sealink ferry from Roberts Point. Our driver did a number of drop off points on the way back which made it a lot easier for many people. Only downside: some instructions were confusing - we were told to book a table for our lunch but that must have been for people who weren't on the full day tour but that wasn't made clear. I think people from the two boats ahead of us had to wait some time for their lunch but we didn't as we were the last ones in. Overall we had a wonderful experience which made for a lovely 33rd Wedding Anniversary.
