What To Expect

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.
