What You Can Expect

Full-Day Bruny Island Tour from Hobart

Bruny Island

Your Bruny Island day trip from Hobart starts with the approximate 45-minute coach drive from the city to the coast, where you’ll catch the ferry to Adventure Bay. During the drive, admire the scenery and listen to narration from your driver about points of interest.

When you reach Adventure Bay, enjoy fresh-baked muffins for morning tea before setting off on your 3-hour wilderness cruise around Bruny Island. With covered open-air seating, the custom-built adventure boat provides plenty of viewing opportunities of the wild coastline and, hopefully, sightings of local marine life. Your heart will race as you zoom between steep cliff faces, heading toward the Breathing Rock. See the treacherous location where the Southern Ocean meets the Tasman Sea, and keep your eyes open for dolphins, fur seals, sea eagles and maybe even a great white shark.

When your cruise returns to shore, warm up with a lunch of homemade soup and bread, and then end your day trip with the trip back to Hobart.

Spectacular. Try to choose a day with calmish, sunny weather if you can.

Best experience! great guides, amazing scenery, we saw dolphins, garnets diving for fish, two humpback whales, New Zealand and Australian Fur seals. The caves, blow hole, cathedral rocks were all mind blowing. The morning tea of freshly baked muffin and coffee were the best I've had and I am not too fond of muffins usually. lunch the BEST pumpkin soup, the salmon rolls were delicious. we will do it again when we go back to Tasmania.

An early start to the day, Bus trip to the ferry which took us over to Bruny Island. On arrival we had morning tea of a muffin, hot or cold drink. From there we walked up to the boat which took us on our water adventure. Friendly staff . They offer you a herbal sea sickness tablet on the boat which helps! About 3 hours on the water, great commentary and beautiful views. Back on shore you are treated to lunch which consists of hot soup, which you definitely need to warm up from the bitter cold wind! Followed by a roll, salad with either salmon, Ham or vegetarian, hot or cold drink.
Make sure you wear warm clothes even if its a sunny day, the weather out there is bitter cold. Had an amazing fun filled day. We saw lots of seals lazing in the sun on the rocks and we even saw a whale! You definitely sleep well that night!

Amazing, all tours with Pennicott Wilderness are well organised, staffed by fantastic personnel who are extremely friendly and helpful throughout the day. And, they feed you delicious morning tea and lunch. The scenery is splendid, and the wildlife in their natural environment is an honour to see. Thanks again for a wonderful day.
