One of the most amazing trips ever experienced. From the coach driver to the boat crew, from the hospitality to the historic Port Arthur site - a day full of education, adventure and inconceivable majesty of the Tasmanian landscape.

Fantastic day trip with great staff and highly recommended. If I could do it again however I would do it in two days as an afternoon is not enough to properly enjoy Port Arthur. I'd probably do the boat trip and the Devil Unzoo Day One and Port Arthur all day Day Two.

WOW WOW WOW is all we can say! This was the absolute highlight of our grande tour of Australia. We happened to go on this trip on the day of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race and saw the top 2-place finishers, got to ride along side them for awhile! The photos and experiences on this trip are unexplainable, so just take the tour yourself! Of course Port Arthur Historic Site is filled with so much history that was great to learn. Really great tour.

Very well organised, enjoyable and informative tour. On the 3 hour boat trip Cain and Damo provided funny and informative commentaries and gave us the chance to see lots of wildlife no whales, but dolphins, seals, petrels, albatross and amazing scenery in and around Tasman Island. However even on relatively calm days - 1-2 metre swells - poor sailers like me should make sure you take motion sickness tablets before you head out! We had more than enough time to explore the Port Arthur site before heading back to Hobart.

Wow!!! This was the perfect day trip. We drove down from Hobart to the southern cost we took a tour boat around the coast then we went to Port Arthur where we had lunch and toured the site. Everyone connected with the tour was friendly and accommodating. The sights from the boat was sublime. There are no words to describe how breathtaking these were! All in all, a great experience and good value!

Great Trip on the water. The views and guides are awesome. Make sure you have your sea legs as it can get rough on the water. Sit at the back of the boat for the smoothest ride.

I loved the cruise around the peninsula. We entered water caves, saw blowholes, an albatross, dolphins, and seals. We were fortunate to have great weather in early May. Port Arthur is immense. As a senior with slight arthritis, I rode with one of the shuttle drivers around the area. Even though we were there a few hours, I explored only a fraction of the buildings, but that was enough for me.

Very well organised tour, from moment of meeting the bus in Hobart, to the return later that day. The morning tea was delicious, no waiting involved. The boat trip was fantastic, with a friendly and knowledgeable crew. Lunch was good, very promptly served. Port Arthur is a must-see. Bus driver was very friendly and obliging. The amazing scenery and wildlife could only be seen from the boat. Though a cold day, the wet-weather gear supplied kept us dry and warm. Highly recommend!

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.

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

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
