This trip was fantastic - the airboat ride around the majestic cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula was amazing and visiting Port Arthur was very interesting. Only one problem - the boat was full and the gentleman lecturing about the area spoke so that only the front passengers could hear him. He always came back when asked a question, but it was disappointing to miss so much of the discourse.Everyone involved was very friendly and made sure we were all comfortable and we had plenty of time to see everything. It was absolutely a day well spent! If you go, just don't be afraid to let them know if you can't hear what they are saying!
This was a really wonderful day out. The weather was good and the sea calm, the guide and commentary were excellent - he was very knowledgable and could tell us all about the geology, flora and fauna that we sailed past. We were lucky enough to see a shoal/school? of blue finned tuna leaping from the water with albatros circling overhead. Also saw seals basking in the sunshine on the rocks. Port Arthur very interesting historic site unfortunately the guide there did talk for too long meaning that there was not a lot of time to wander round afterwards but a thoroughly enjoyable trip.
Great trip, do not miss!
Excellent, could have done with more time at Port Arthur
it's been an amazing experience! Breathtaking views and lovely people
a wonderful day. boat trip very exciting. saw a couple of pods of dolphins. port arthur has so much to see. will be definitely going back there.
This tour was fantatstic. Started off with hr bus trip, simple m/tea at quiet local shop, back in the bus and off to the boat. Boat only held 33 people, was open air speed boat type of thing and full length rain coats were supplied given you are going to get slightly wet. Was freezing out on water - rug up - even on a 25 degree day. Lots of kodak moments so take the camera. 3hr boat trip ended with very substantial lunch at Port Arthur. Guided walking tour followed about 40mins and then fee time to roam around Port Arthur before return bus trip where the driver kindly dropped off everyone to their accommodation. Long day, really worth it.
Absolutely incredible. Great boat team and we were lucky with the weather which allowed us to see parts of the coast that you cant normally get to owing to large ocean swells. Informative, fun and Port Arthur was also great in the afternoon.
Loved the scenery and all the tour components went smoothly. I have recommended it to all my friends.
Beautiful scenery,speed ride on the boat was fun good information about the site during our trip. A must to do activity. Port Arthur was very interesting site to see.
