Full description

Experience Bruny Island on a full-day eco-adventure from Hobart. Experienced guides will make your adventure fun, entertaining, and informative. The meeting point is quite central, just a short walk or taxi ride from most Hobart hotels.

Check-in at 7:30 AM then enjoy a scenic bus tour from Hobart to Bruny Island. After the ferry crossing, savor 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 (gluten-free & vegetarian options available).

After the ferry crossing, relax on the return journey to Hobart. Be dropped back to your hotel around 5:30 PM.

A fantastic day - bus, ferry, boat!! Amazing. A great host - Natalie- her service was outstanding. She was knowledgeable about the countryside we were driving through, was amazing on the boat - particularly because it was a bit rough that day- checking on everyone constantly. Amazing morning tea and lunch

The boats are small but powerful, and cut easily through the waves. Somewhat bumpy but it a good way. It was hardly wet at all - the thick ponchos supplied were, in the conditions we met, not really needed (but wd be if heavy). The trip gives a very a different slant on the coast, which ppl usually view from on shore. We saw seals and a rare type of albatross. It was a positive experience for us. Happy to recommend it to you.

Absolutely fantastic. We had a great day experiencing the wonderful Bruny Island. Bus driver , Matt, was so informative about the trip with great commentary about Tasmania. The boat trip, lead by Mick and his off-slider, was a brilliant experience. Pennicot Tours is an exceptionally well run operation. Ever staff member friendly and helpful to the travellers. Great food at their restaurant, too !
