What people are saying about Hobart

The crew catered to every need. Provided morning tea and a delicious lunch. We saw a pod of dolphins and they circled around our boat. The boat was able to reach along the coast and show some amazing rock formations you would only be able see on board. We visited Maria Island and had a guided walk, learning history and about the wildlife surrounding. Lucky enough to interact with some adorable wombats on the island who were not camera shy. Would recommend to everyone and definitely travel with them again.

This all day tour to the Tasman peninsula and Port Arthur was fabulous. Our guide Justin was amazing, hilarious and very knowledgeable. There was a long bush walk to one site on the way which we weren’t expecting but still very well worthwhile. Very much recommend this tour and company. Great communication.

It was fantastic. Jeff made it a great trip. He showed us white wallabies and a blond echidna. He was very patient and very kind. Jeff, you’re a legend mate.

The boat tour was so fun! we saw sea lions, whales, and pods of dolphins.

Captain’s commentary was insightful and interesting
