Great day well worth the trip awsome coast line with great crew Ange and Damo on fantastic boat
This is one of the best tours I have taken. The scenery and wildlife of the Tasman Peninsula speak for themselves, but what made this tour so good were the knowledgable, capable, and friendly staff, especially on the boat portion. One got the idea that the boat crew were truly interested in the subject themselves, and wanted to share their passion with the visitors, making sure to enter the most interesting caves and pointing out the tiniest of wildlife. The Port Arthur site is very interesting and worth a visit; any suggestions I have are for the PA folks themselves, as we were left to the PA guides for the walk-around; there were 70 people in our group at that point and we didn't stay with them. However, we found that on our own, the historical site itself suffers from very poor signage (OK once a person reaches a building, but it's very hard to keep checkiing the rough sketch map instead of reading road signs, even when one knows where one wants to go). This is not viator's fault, but perhaps could pass this on to PA. The PA museum is great; overall, the PA portion was also worth the visit.
It was amazing, best boat trip we have ever taken, spectacular scenery, brilliant crew..... Just amazing .
My trip to the Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur Historic Site was an excellent introduction to my time in Tasmania. The staff were very friendly and efficient and helped immensely in making the day a very memorable one for me to start my Tasmanian experience.
Wonderful team, very attentive, very experienced, lots of humour...can't ask for better guides. The tour was breathtaking. Thank you so much!
Great tour with Eco focused company. Went out into the Southern Ocean to visit the Tasman peninsula. Also was lucky enough to see dolphins and seals! The guides were knowledgeable and allowed plenty of time to capture photo's. Combining this with Port Arthur is a great way to maximise the day.
fantastic day of coastal scenery and historic viewing. Close up views of coastal areas from the boat was great and great tour guides.
Totally worth the money. We did the full day tour with pickup from Hobart. The highlight was the cruise. You see magnificent scenery and wildlife. All of the staff on the bus and boat are great and able to answer any questions you have and also give great commentary about the area you are visiting. Would recommend to anybody.
Day trip to Tasman Peninsula was absolutely killing. Cruise was a highlight. It was a real magic to see all those fantastic rocks from the sea, beautiful seals in their natural habitat and whales with calves migrating to Antarctic. The captain of a vessel and his beautiful assistant Yanni were very nice and knowledgeable, it was a real pleasure to travel with them. Thank you, guys, for this unforgettable experience!
The second part - lunch (hot soupe plus huge sandwich plus cookies plus fruit) and port Arthur was very good too. Also, our tour guide was super kind to bring us directly to the airport (as it was on our way back to Hobart) and save us time and money.
All in all, fantastic tour I strongly recommend to everyone. The only advice is to take some seasickness pills if you suffer from it, as the speed boat can be quite tough on a high waves.
Breathtaking and awesome!!! The only way to describe the cliffs and landscape where the land meets the sea off the Tasman Peninsula. We got to see NZ fur seals, their Australian cousins, cormorants, and lots of dolphins! The boat ride is very thrilling, something like a roller coaster ride! Our guides are very good. Ah...those ginger tablets served everyone well too!
Sweet Jebus, this is going to be regarded as an absolutely "must do" when in Tasmania by the two of us. Ten stars out of five!
