It was fun being on the water but I wouldn’t say it was an eco tour (although I understand it is run as carbon neutral) too much emphasis on the rock minerals and being very close to the rocks. Would have preferred to see more of the island than close ups of some of the rocks. Take note checkin is at 07:45 and whilst the itinerary says ferry at 09:00 what it doesn’t say is that the coach to the ferry leaves at 08:00. We thought we could check in then get breakfast. It would be good if the company amended the timetable to say 08:00 bus departs for ferry terminal. So it’s clear! All up a good day but could be better.
Amazing experience. Lots of rock formations, caves and a blowhole to see. Not for the faint hearted though, as the boat was flying through the air and crashing onto the water over the waves on the wild Southern Ocean side, but very safe due to an experienced skipper and worth it to see the very cute seals sunbathing on the rocks on that side. They gave us some seasickness tablets to help. Lovely morning tea, lunch and snacks. The transfer from Hobart CBD was definitely worth adding.
A wonderful day trip - I highly recommend it if you are staying in Hobart! Our guide was very informative and made the trip lots of fun! The 3 hour cruise around the caves and beaches was incredible - we saw whales, dolphins, seals and lots of albatrosses! The Tassie Devil sanctuary was wonderful and we had a great opportunity to feed the kangaroos and wallabies and see the rare Tassie Devils and albino possums in the flesh - amazing day!
A brilliant trip. Short drive, ferry trip, short drive and stop, coffee, boat trip, lunch, short drive, ferry, short drive. Engaging guide Grant, who kept us amused and informed as we passed sights of interest. The chance to see both common and bottle nose dolphins.
Great trip. The three hours cruise allowed to see the amazing caves and cliffs and also watch dolphins and seals. In the afternoon the UnZoo was a good place to see the devils, birds, pademelons and kangaroos. Everything was well organised.
