Wild! Totally Wild, This is what the brochure said and the tour delivers in spades. We say common dolphins, seals, bottlenose dolphins and the very rare flying fish. The crew managed to navigate the seas which were only a couple of metre swells The highlight was the bottlenose dolphins which were riding the wave wake of the front of the boat. You could also touch them, amazing to be so close to these beautiful creatures. The scenery of the vertical cliffs was outstanding. Highly recommended!!

This day trip had it all. Phil the bus driver made sure everyone knew what to do and when. Damo and his companion ran an outstanding trip to Tasman island and Port Arthur on their great tourist speed boats. Be aware that if you suffer from motion or sea sickness this tour may not be for you. Lots of dolphins, seals and bird life on our tour. The detailed information was presented in an informative but entertaining way. Highly recommended!

What a fabulous day with great crew. We saw humpback whales, heaps of dolphins and seals, huge rocky cliffs and we were in awe much of the time. Beautiful blue water all around. The boats get really close and idle for great photo opportunities. Absolutely the highlight of our Tasmanian trip. Oh yes, we also saw yachts going towards Hobart for the Sydney to Hobart race. They warn you to rug up and trust me, it is COLD, but take your gloves, beanie, scarf, best coat if you don't want to be cold. Then enjoy! You are given big red waterproof jackets/caftan just in case of sea spray. Australia at it's wildest. Felt safe the entire time.Loved every minute.

When you travel, there are some activities you are happy to spend the $ to gain an experience. THIS TOUR is one of those times. The team are friendly, very helpful and provide clear instructions and regular check ins to all travellers to make sure you are enjoying the trip. Our boat driver and deck hand were full of interesting facts on the sites and wildlife. The cruise is amazing with a natural wonder at every turn from cliffs to caves to a lighthouse out in no man’s land, as well as seals and various bird life on the cliffs, out to see a bait ball where we saw seals, dolphins and an albatross in full feeding mode. This cruise is packed full of surprises with never a low moment.
