Overview
Discover Tasmania’s Bruny Island on this full-day tour from Hobart. Feel the awesome power of the Southern Ocean on a three-hour coastal wilderness cruise around the island, where you’ll see pristine beaches, remote coastlines and wildlife in its natural habitat. Experience a rush of adrenaline as the custom-built eco-cruiser travels along sheer cliff faces, exploring deep-sea caves. Plus, enjoy morning tea and lunch on the island.
Highlights
  • All transportation provided on this multi-stage trip to Bruny Island
  • Commentary gives a picture of the island's history and environment
  • Morning tea and lunch ensure travelers won't go hungry
  • All details arranged ahead of time for a stress-free trip
What to Expect
Multi-stage transportation is provided on this day trip to Bruny Island, which eliminates the hassle of puzzling all the details out ahead of time. Begin with convenient pickup in Hobart for a 45-minute coach ride to the ferry terminal, where you'll catch the ferry to Bruny Island's Adventure Bay. On the trip, listen to commentary about the sights you pass, prepping you for your time on the island.  Upon arrival to Adventure Bay, dig in to a morning tea that includes freshly baked muffins to fuel up before catching the boat for the 3-hour cruise around the island. Find a seat in the open-air boat (with covered portions) to take in the scenery and get photo ops of the rugged coastline, including the location where the Tasman Sea meats the Southern Ocean. Listen to guided commentary and keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife such as sea eagles, great white sharks, fur seals, and dolphins. Soup and gourmet sandwiches are served when you return to shore, before drop-off back in Hobart.

This was the highlight of our Tassie trip. We're two senior citizens and loved every second. We had Mick as skipper, such a very funny man. He also gave us heaps of boating thrills. All the staff were so considerate of indivual needs, non english speaking thru to us oldies

This is not your usual boat cruise. It’s great fun, guided by experienced nature lovers, but you will get wet! Dress warmly in layers. Out on the water, the wind and the spray will cool you off more than you can imagine. You’ll get to feel and see nature. Grant and Chuckie

So glad I did this tour! Fun bus trip with a brilliant tour guide, Jamie, even with his sometimes terrible dad jokes. Beautiful views to and from the island, especially with the stop at ‘the neck’. I’ve never seen anything like it! Don’t be tricked by the weather, take warm
