Overview
Combine a sightseeing tour to Bruny Island with a cruise around the island to get a comprehensive picture of this popular attraction. With guided commentary, learn about the native flora and fauna as well as the history of the island. Look out for fur seals and dolphins while cruising past dramatic scenery and enjoy traveling light since morning tea and lunch are provided.
Highlights
  • All transportation provided on this multi-stage trip to Bruny Island
  • Commentary gives a picture of the island's history and environment
  • Morning tea and lunch ensure travelers won't go hungry
  • All details arranged ahead of time for a stress-free trip
What to Expect
Multi-stage transportation is provided on this day trip to Bruny Island, which eliminates the hassle of puzzling all the details out ahead of time. Begin with convenient pickup in Hobart for a 45-minute coach ride to the ferry terminal, where you'll catch the ferry to Bruny Island's Adventure Bay. On the trip, listen to commentary about the sights you pass, prepping you for your time on the island.  Upon arrival to Adventure Bay, dig in to a morning tea that includes freshly baked muffins to fuel up before catching the boat for the 3-hour cruise around the island. Find a seat in the open-air boat (with covered portions) to take in the scenery and get photo ops of the rugged coastline, including the location where the Tasman Sea meats the Southern Ocean. Listen to guided commentary and keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife such as sea eagles, great white sharks, fur seals, and dolphins. Soup and gourmet sandwiches are served when you return to shore, before drop-off back in Hobart.

Picked up by Grant from Hobart and driven to Adventure Bay. Very good guide and entertaining. Went across on Ferry. Had a nice morning tea on arrival with a very nice muffin. Then went on boat for three hour cruise. Pity it was a bit rough but still an enjoyable trip.

This is not your usual boat cruise. It’s great fun, guided by experienced nature lovers, but you will get wet! Dress warmly in layers. Out on the water, the wind and the spray will cool you off more than you can imagine. You’ll get to feel and see nature. Grant and Chuckie
