Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Highlight of My Trip

Wow! I honestly don't even know where to begin. This cruise was so much better than I could have ever imagined. Punctual departure and return, a hilarious yet extremely knowledgeable tour guide, Jamie, and a day on the water that showed me the real & untouched Tassie. The crew were super professional on board and did their best to answer any questions we had, take the time to stop for photos, all whilst ensuring we felt as safe as possible. Also a bonus - the included morning tea and fish and chips at the Pennicott restaurant were AMAZING! If you can only do one tour activity in Tasmania, it should definitely be this one!

This tour is one of the best tours I've been on. Our driver was very knowledgeable explaining interests of the places we were passing through on our way to Kettering where we boarded the ferry (on the bus) that took us over to Bruny Island. Lovely scenery on our way to Adventure Bay where we embarked on our Bruny Island cruise (jetboat) ride around the magnificent coastline with sheer cliffs and amazing scenery. The seals and dolphins came out to play. Morning tea and lunch were well-catered and delicious.

This tour was great. The bus trip and guide went without a hitch. The highlight was the speed boat trip around the cliffs. Despite the high seas we always felt safe and exhilarated. The lunch was good and they catered specially for my wife dietary needs.
