Unforgettable experience, my family n i had a good time in this tour. The down side is that we need to travel a long time to reach the bruny island, but its worth. Just make sure u only take ginger tablet if u have seasickness.
The bus ride and the Vehicle ferry crossing to Bruny were both very efficiently carried out. On the boat trip around the island we experienced very rough seas with high waves. The boat crew were very competent, and I enjoyed the trip thoroughly..
Fascinating trip, everything was well organized with tasty morning tea and lunch. Staff was nice and informative, beautiful scenery of sandstone cliffs, close-up watching dolphins and fur seals was amazing.
Breath taking scenery a great experience but very cold you need to wrap up extremley well but well worth it.
Our tour guide was lovely and the trip to Bruny Island is pretty easy (short bus ride followed by a short ferry ride and another short bus ride).
If I could give any advice it would be to wear very warm clothes. We went in December (the middle of summer) and it was absolutely freezing. You need to wear heavy closed in shoes and a warm jacket. Luckily I bought gloves and a beanie before we went on the boat.
The boat ride is very fast which I enjoyed but it can also be quite rough. We had 2 metre high seas. If you get sea sick or have a sore back or neck, sit at the back of the boat. But the crew supplies sea sick tablets and takes good care of you.
We saw a lot of seals on our trip. The scenery was pretty but I'm not sure it was worth the freezing cold, rain and hail. Having said that, my husband absolutely loved it!
The lunch was delicious (soup, gourmet roll and hot chocolate or coffee) - included in the price.
The people in Tasmania are lovely. If this type of trip appeals to you, I would highly recommend this tour.
It's a bit different than expected but still worth going. The scenes were nice.
Enjoyable tour - great guides. Weather was not good, nothing can be done about that. Would love to re-do the tour on a fine day.
Great day, sea condition's quite calm. The Captain of the boat excellent in his professionalism. Lunch was okay a little slow on our table which in the end had to rush to board the bus. The only dampener of the trip that the bus driver/ tour guide was not very professional, comments made were not acceptable. I also felt that he had to override people even though questions weren't directed to him.
Well organised, great staff. Unfavourable weather meant we didn't reach the seal or penguin colonies which was very disappointing. However, the rough conditions made the boat trip an adventure in itself. I would deinately do it again under better weather conditions.
The day we went was windy with squalls of hail blowing across every now and then. I couldn't hear the commentary above the noise of the wind and the outboards and in spite of the ginger tablets I was seasick. However the staff were attentive, and the scenery was magnificent. Unforgettable! Blueberry muffins for morning tea warm from the oven and lunch when we got back were both delicious.
