Bruny Island Cruises

Bruny Island Cruises provides unique coastal wilderness experiences on Bruny Island, just 90 minutes south of Hobart. The cruise was awarded as Australia’s Best Tourist Attraction for 2012 and has won Tasmania’s Best Tourist Attraction in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012.


Cruise alongside some of Australia’s highest sea cliffs, beneath towering crags and drift up close to listen to the awesome ‘Breathing Rock’. Enter deep sea caves, pass through the narrow gap between the coast and ‘The Monument’, a tall slender stack – and feel the power of nature at the point where the Tasman Sea meets the might of the Southern Ocean. Join in the search for abundant sea and coastal wildlife such as seals, dolphins, whales and sea birds.

The highly-trained interpretive guides love what they do – they work hard to ensure that the experience of all of their guests is fun, enjoyable, entertaining and informative.

The custom built yellow boats are ideal for viewing the spectacular coastline and wildlife of Bruny Island. Covered open-air tiered seating means an excellent all-round view and connection with the environment. Nicknamed the ‘4WD’s of the sea’ for their unequalled sea-keeping abilities these boats are safe, comfortable and gentle on the environment due to their fuel efficiency, low emission and quiet operation.


Where is Bruny Island?

Bruny Island lies off the south east coast of Tasmania, some 25 kilometers south of Hobart. It is linked to mainland Tasmania by the vehicular ferry Mirambeena.

The island is an un spoilt haven with spectacular scenery and a landscape which varies from pasture to rainforest. It has glorious miles of sandy beaches and rugged cliffs. North and South Bruny are joined by a narrow isthmus, "The Neck", which is home to a colony of fairy penguins.

If you have your own car you can join us in Adventure Bay for the 3 Hour Wilderness Cruise. We also have the option of a Kettering Pickup, or the Full Day Tour from Hobart..

Bookings are essential.
