Full description

Experience Bruny Island on a full-day eco-adventure from Hobart. Discover the main highlights of the island, marvel at the coastline, impressive sea cliffs, and more by a combined bus, cruise, and ferry ride. Get the chance to see seals and dolphins before savoring a local lunch.

You will start the tour with a scenic bus tour from Hobart to Bruny Island. After the ferry crossing, enjoy sightseeing and morning tea on Bruny Island. Morning tea is a freshly baked blueberry muffin and a hot or cold drink.

Listen to live commentary on the bus on the way to the cruise departure point at Adventure Bay. Embark on a 3-hour wilderness cruise on a custom-built boat. Explore the rugged coastline, cruising beneath high sea cliffs and entering deep sea caves. Encounter seals, dolphins, and whales.

At the end of your cruise, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before a sightseeing bus tour of Bruny Island. Savor homemade pumpkin soup and a gourmet salad roll with your choice of Tasmanian Salmon or local ham.

What a wonderful experience, highly recommend for your bucket list.... nothing like playing tourist in your own state and being entertained by an awesome crew. Worth every cent and some. All we can say is do yourself a favour, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent once in a lifetime opportunity to experience unique ocean wildlife. Well coordinated from pick to drop off. Knowledgeable, friendly and engaged guides. Fast boats provided a quick and fun way to tour around Bruny Island and into the Southern Ocean.

It was a fantastic experience. We saw bottle nose dolphins, seals, a baby elephant seal, blow holes caves and a beautiful coastline. The entire experience was great, from the bus drive, cruise, lunch and the walk to the neck was breathtaking. Thank you for a great day.
