Absolutely brilliant day. Our driver Luke was knowledgeable and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was always smiling. The guides on the boat were also very knowledgeable telling about the history of the place plus plenty of stops to take photos and just take in the beauty of the area. Saw albatross, dolphins, seals and rock climbers. Lunch and morning tea at the Lavender Farm were also included and the scones with lavender butter and jam were delicious. The Unzoo was small but the two hours there went very quick and well worth the visit especially the Tassie Devil feeding experience. The whole day was full, fun and info packed. Loved every minute.
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.
From the moment we left Hobart with our Awesome informative Driver Jamie & boarded The Boat on Bruny where James was @ the helm Jen & I enjoyed every last minute of the Tour & will be returning in November to do the Seafood Fishing & eating trip it’s great to know that Rob Pennicott puts 30 per cent of the profits back into Community Groups
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.
