All up a great experiance, highly recomended. Great food and commentory and lots to see.
The fur seals were a highlight.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience on the Wineglass Bay Cruise. The staff were friendly and interested in their passengers and their care (i.e. seasickness), the commentary was easy to listen to and informative, the range of animal life was amazing (the first time I've ever seen dolphins and whales in the wild) and even the Bento box lunch was of excellent quality. The bar was well stocked with options (even Gluten Free for me) and was easy to access. I felt Covid Safe with the number of people on the cruise, social distancing practices and the sanitising options available. The toilets were also well kept and roomy! Thanks for a fabulous day!

Wonderful experience on a perfect day. Staff were very friendly and are an ornament to the business.
Awesome Trip ,Excellent Service
We had an amazing time, we saw Humpback whales, dolphins and seals. The crew were wonderful and the scenery was spectacular, the lunch provided was delicious, I can't find any negatives, I would definitely recommend this cruise!
Great cruise and wonderful trip. Food was also lovely.
A must do cruise highly recommend
Had a fabulous day. The scenery was beautiful, loved the dolphins. We were well looked after by the crew and had a delicious lunch as well. I would highly recommend this cruise.
It was spectacular even though the weather was a bit bleak. The crew were excellent, and we're always available for any needs. Enjoyed the beautiful Tasmanian lunch. Thank you once again for such a fantastic trip
We were booked on this cruise 12 months ago but it as cancelled due to gale force winds. We were leaving Tasmania the next day so missed out, but vowed to return and we did. Great day with a terrific crew. The going was very rough with a big swell, but they handled it beautifully. We were up on the top and stayed outside for most of the trip. Lunch was very nice. I would recommend this cruise to anybody.
Excellent cruise very informative and attentive staff.Weather was very good. We saw dolphins swimming beside the boat. Seals on the rocks.
Staff were so helpful, friendly and eager to make sure we were looked after, especially the ones feeling a bit nausea. However, by not going straight to Wineglass Bay it made a few people nausea just that little bit too far before we stopped.
Lunch was nice, great idea in the Bento Boxes, however, I wouldn't rave about the lunch by any means.
Perhaps a stop at Freycinet Lodge for lunch on the way back would have been better.......we went there after the Cruise for more food.
The cruise was a great way to see the Hazard Ranges, Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay. The boat and crew were fantastic. We enjoyed sightings of seals and whales as well as the caves, blowholes and pristine beaches along the peninsula. The day was very relaxing and enjoyable.
The cruise was great and the crew were very personable and helpful!
Started off badly when we had to stand out in the open while waiting to board, thank god it didn't rain.
The boat was cramped and if you are in the middle row, very hard to see.The food came in a Bento box and was ordinary. The scenery is great but that was about it, we found it very disappointing compared to the Gordon River cruise. And over priced.
Great value for money! The weather was in our favour and fortunately for us the boat was not crowded. All staff were pleasant and helpful. Would have liked to have heard more about the Indigenous people who lived here in the past. What of their influence then and now?
Didn't go, got more than half way and the captain turned back said seas were too rough. We were offers ginger calm tablets before we left and a section of the cruise didn't take then and were all sick, I hope this didn't have a bearing on the captain turning back..
