Well done! The bus departed on time from the quay. We were issued full length rain gear and motion sickness tablets as soon as we boarded our boat and both were welcome. It was an exhilarating, awesome ride and I'd love to do it again! The Port Arthur site was very interesting. On return to the quay I was fortunate that the bus would be passing my Airbnb. The driver deposited me at my door.
Absolutely loved our day. From our bus trip with Pascall, to our boat ride and Port Arthur Historic site. I highly recommend the Wilderness boat cruise. It was awesome, see all the high cliffs, going into a few caves and just learning. Saw plenty of seals and a few dolphins.
Very well organised great scenery plenty of time to walk around and explore Port Arthur. Packed lunch they gave us was also great. Had a great time. Phil our tour guide was awesome
Absolutely brilliant! The route/sights were great and the guides were even better.
Excellent tour - recommended as a must-do if you're visiting Hobart.
We were lucky in that the weather was quite pleasant. It does get quite cold and occasionally bumpy on the cruise, but full-length rain jackets and even ginger tablets to help with seasickness are provided. Got to see seals, seabirds, dolphins and whales. Lots of opportunities to take photos no matter where on the boat you're sitting at.
Morning tea and lunch simple but filling is included with the tour, had a few snacks on the boat as well.
The time spent at Port Arthur was also sufficient - there's a walking tour and a boat cruise good for a short rest after the earlier exciting cruise. We got back to Hobart around 6:30pm the Tasman Peninsula went overtime as we spotted whales
Absolutely awesome boat tour of the South East coastline, unforgettable scenery.

Our trip to Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur was a very enjoyable day.
The day began with Phil our Bus Driver who filled us in on what would be seeing during the day and the local information as we made our way to Pirates Cove where we would stop for a morning tea break .After the morning tea stop we boarded the bus for a short journey to the wharf where we meet the boat .
The boat was crewed by Tim Skipper and Damien they were very professional in the way they made sure everyone was aware of all things related to safety whilst on the journey. On our way to Tasman Island we made various stops along the way for photo's of places of interest the boat was manovered so every one mad a chance to get some photo's . As we moved further down the coast towards Tasman Island we were told to look out for Whales sure enough there was Whales ,Seals and Dolphins spotted plus a mixture of different seabirds.
When we arrived at Tasman Island we stopped for sort time to take photo's and to get some history on the Island before heading back to Pirates Cove along the way the crew handed out some snacks .
On arrival back at Pirates Cove we boarded the bus for the journey to Port Arthur on arrival we had a very nice lunch which was part of the tour before joining a 45 minute guided tour of the Historical Site .We could then stroll through the site for the remainder of our three hours making sure to leave time to shop for souvenirs before rejoining the bus for the return to Hobart. A very enjoyable day and many thanks to Phil ,Tim and Damien
The boat trip was amazing. All staff were so friendly and informative. I'd recommend this tour operator and do another trip with them if I ever come back to Hobart. Fantastic day!
Absolutely amazing experience!! Breath taking! The coat was great since it was sooo cold! Definitely the highlight of our Tasmanian vacation.
just the best tour i have ever done . a must do, thanks . Rob/Lance
