Spend a relaxing day in Hobart on the water by traveling from the city to Peppermint Bay on a River Derwent cruise. You'll have the chance to see dolphins in the d’Entrecasteaux Channel, and then hop off the boat for lunch at a waterfront restaurant at Peppermint Bay with a view of Bruny Island.
Take a daytime cruise along the River Derwent from Hobart to Peppermint Bay
The cruise was the highlight of our trip to Tasmania, its a great way to experience the coast enjoyed the Captains commentary and we were lucky enough to see dolphins and sleeping seals.The fresh produce, professional and friendly staff were fantastic.So much to see and do in Tasmania will certainly do this tour again the next time we go. Thank you!
Beautiful, comfortable vessel. Outstanding views of Hobart, shoreline, and Bruny Island. Lunch was fantastic and timed perfectly. Restaurant is modern and beautiful. It doesn't take all day, leaving plenty of time to do other things in the morning and afternoon. Well worth the price.
The Peppermint Bay lunch cruise is a MUST. Weather wise our day was not perfect as it rained a bit off and on however, the water was calm which made for a very pleasant journey. The Captain was very informative of the sights we were seeing and had a great wealth of knowledge of Hobart and its surrounds. All the crew were very friendly and could not do enough for us which made our trip all that much more enjoyable. The Peppermint Bay multi-function establishment is very modern and provided a great vista of the water and surrounds while we ate the most magnificent 5 course lunch. We strongly suggest you don't go overboard with breakfast because lunch will certainly see you replete in no time. With great wines and beers to choose from to accompany your lunch at additional cost you will be able to sit back, savour the food that is served and enjoy your surroundings for as long as you like before the boat departs that is. If you feel the need to walk off some of the lunch, the small town about 50 steps out of the venue is worth a look through before heading back to the boat for the quick trip home. All in all, a fantastic trip and one we will be recommending to anyone who asks what to do in Hobart.
We went on the Peppermint Bay tour which was really great - except the Sun Princess decided to leave at 3pm instead of 5pm. We realised when we were on this tour that we would miss the ships departure. Shock!! The people at the Peppermint Bay hotel were so helpful, they rang a taxi for us and gave us part of the dinner plus a refund, The taxi cost 100 but at least we managed to get to the ship on time.
Great boat, great views of the Derwent and shores, great crew and restaurant staff, the Peppermint Hotel is a superbly designed open modern Australian Architectural marvel and the food one taste explosion after the next.
