As we were driving from Bicheno to Coles Bay we were slightly worried about the weather but the sun came out and everything was great. Check in on the cruise went without problems and then we took off with great expectations. We were guided around the Freycinet Peninsula and as it was a bit windy we knew that the glassy... More

Yes the Sky Lounge is just a lovely experience, especially the freshly shucked oysters! But the lovely Vista Deck is also a wonderful experience with its floor to ceiling windows and two decks! We are really happy that you enjoyed the cruise. More

Despite the day starting out cloudy the trip is well worth it. Great crew on the boat and are always very wary of the weather especially when you go out into the open water. Unfortunately we could not anchor in Wineglass Bay because of the sea swells so returned to quieter water for our delicious lunch. It is definitely a... More

We are simply not lucky with the weather whenever we book one of these sort of cruises . Our wineglass cruise proved to be no exception it was windy and wet as we boarded . At least though this is more like a ship than many of the other craft that we have been on and we were able to... More

Great seats and big windows on 3 sides. We viewed the wildlife and coastline from both the bow and stern outdoor decks, and while sitting in the interior. The boat is a catamaran which makes it more stable on the open water. There are 2 classes of seating with the upstairs is limited to 28 people who have more comfortable... More

A coastal cruise, which allows you to see stunning beaches, and colourful rock cliffs. Seeing schools of dolphins and other bird life was a definite highlight. The crew gave a good commentary, be it hard to hear out on the open deck. People who are motion sickness sufferers should do this trip on a calm day, take the ginger tablets... More

The cruise departs from Coles Bay and takes you around to Wineglass Bay. On the way, the skipper points out various features & wildlife. On our trip there appeared to be some sort of "frenzy" in the water about 0.5 kilometers away, so we headed towards it. When we got there, hundreds of dolphins and seals were engaging in a... More

This is a wonderful way to see the bays and mountains along the coast of the Freycinet National Park. I took the upper floor option, which is a bit more expensive, where the view is a bit better, is not as crowded and includes all drinks, lunch and oysters. The scenery is beautiful with plenty of wildlife to view including... More

Lovely comments thank you for taking the time and for cruising with us. Fair comment about our staff being a little strict we do need to do this at times for people safety. We try and promote our local produce as much as possible on the cruise. More

We arrived early to board the boat by 8:30am, the boat was a surprise very new and exceptionally clean, the staff were very informative, friendly, and professional. The narrative was a wonderful incite into Tasmanian history and delivered well. The lunch was served in a wonderful little box with lid, in the compartments was a tasty array of Tasmanian cheeses,...
