We thoroughly recommend this tour

We thoroughly recommend this tour. The people are amazing and make this experience a must do. The tour is wonderful and fun, as well as informative. The coast is worth seeing. We were lucky enough to see seals and a variety of birds including albatrosses.

The staff at Bruny Island Wildlife Cruises were very friendly and gave good advice on what to bring to the 3-hour cruise

The staff at Bruny Island Wildlife Cruises were very friendly and gave good advice on what to bring to the 3-hour cruise. The boat was very fast and we found the staff to have a great deal of knowledge of Bruny Island and its surrounds as well as checking up on us to make sure we were okay. It was very cold at the end of May and warm clothes, beanie and gloves are highly recommended.

The tour was very well organised and the guide was very much informative

The tour was very well organised and the guide was very much informative. We were also given tablets to prevent motion sickness and occasional snacks. Lots of photo opportunities and the tour was not rushed over. The boat ride was thrilling and bit bumpy but enjoyable. We were also given fleece jackets and ponchos. Definitely recommended!
