"Thanks again for a truly wonderful day out last Monday Feb 25 2013. I took my elderly Mother and Aunt on the cruise and they had a terrific time and a wonderful experience. Your people, Lee, Matt, Dave and a young lady (sorry I forget her name) were so lovely and really looked after my Mum and Aunt. I was also very impressed with their local knowledge and ability to entertain and engage people of all ages. It is the second time I have done the Bruny Island cruise with your organisation and I have loved it both times. Well done on providing such a first class day out. regards Debbie Merkenhof"

"Fantastic day,the boat trip from Bruny Island was terrific, and seeing the dolphins swimming alongside the boat and the sealions basking in the sun and showing off in the water was the highlight of the day for me. The crew are fanastic and make the trip very memorable. This is a must do tour. Thankyou"

"I was on a holiday in Tasmania last week and decided to join Bruny Island tour. The tour to Bruny Island was one of the best tour I've ever been. We were unlucky not to see dolphins and whales, however the tour itself is fantastic. The breakfast and lunch was amazing, beyond my expectation. Hugh and friends really took care of us (group of 5 people) and he is an amazing person. amazingly fun and passionate. I fully recommend this tour to everyone and I will come back again if I have the chance. Thanks for the great experience and credit to Hugh and crews!"

"This tour was the absolute highlight of our trip! It was better than we could have hoped for! Our guides Mick and Lee were fantastic! They were funny, down to earth, knowledgeable, informative, wonderful guys. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking and very humbling, and the seals were fantastic. The three hours absolutely flew by, it was a shame the day had to end, but it was one of the best days we have ever experienced! Will definitely be back!"

"Fantastic. My son Alex and I joined my brother on this beautiful excursion to Bruny Island. It was so exciting to have the dolphins playing near the boat. Hugh and the boys were such good fun and looked after us. I would recommend this tour and will come back again. "

"The highlight of our trip to Tassie last year was the Bruny Island Cruise. Thank you Rob for your exceptional hospitality and for sharing your knowledge with us. We are looking forward to returning to see the rest of Bruny Island, and experiencing more adventures with the Pennicott Wilderness Journeys team."
Brenton      Vivonne Bay, South Australia, Australia      05 Feb 2012


"The Bruny Island day trip on January 29, 2012 was one of the best tours I have ever had. The guides were fun and knowledgeable, down to earth and just made you feel like they loved their jobs and enjoyed taking you on the trip. And to top it off, on the boat portion of the trip our guides took us out a little further than usual and we found 100s of dolphins, seals, albatross, gannets, and other birds. The dolphins were playing with the boats, racing and jumping...I can't even describe in words how amazing it was. In the top 10 best experiences of my life. I would and will recommend this tour to all my friends."

"Thank you for a lovely day at Bruny Island. We had a beautiful weather, an amazing ride with a great staff.Such a fantastic adventure for me. It was better than I expected :)I hope to do it again one day..."

"We did the cruise on 14th October, and loved every minute of it. The crew - Chris & Andrew - were attentive to young & old, were full of information which came not from a 'spiel' but from a real love of the area and what they are doing. To see such truly awesome ( in the original meaning of the word) scenery, and wildlife was simply wonderful and never to be forgotten. The thrill of going through narrow gaps in the rocks, coming up close to the Breathing Rock was exciting and gave us all an adrenalin rush! The best three hours we have spent in a long time. You deserve all the accolades - we hope to repeat the experience again. I will certainly be recommending it to locals and visitors alike. "

"We did the Bruny Island Cruise with our family of 9 on Saturday, 8th October. We had such a fantastic and memorable experience! The Kids loved seeing breathing rock and sighting seals for the first time and a lovely surprise to see dolphins jumping around us and guiding us back into the port! Lee and Steve were absolutely wonderful- so informative, friendly and welcoming. A special thank you to them for looking after us on the boat while a couple of us were under the weather! An unforgettable experience and we can't wait to do it again one day soon! Thank you."

"Myself, Huband and two children 13 and 11 did the cruise last Friday 30/9/2011 on a freezing,wet day in Tasmania. What an amazing ride... Sat at the front and the kids couldnt wipe the smiles off their faces. Mick described it as a wild ride in a washing machine, being in a freezer and an ongoing rollercoaster ride. What an amazing experience, and the most pristine scenery you will ever see. Then we returned to the best lunch you could give in freezing conditions creamy hot pumpkin soup and yummy huge smoked salmon rolls. Great value and unforgettable day. Thanks"

"The surprise gift for my 60th birthday was one of your cruises. What a wonderful day. My husband booked the family on too and a great time was had by all "
Jean Wallace      Midway Point, Tasmania, Australia      10 Jul 2011


"One of the best value for money trips my family and I have been on. Having travelled Australia in 2008 with my family, I can honestly say this is an awesome trip. Spectacular scenery,wildlife and informative, friendly staff. The customer service, from the booking to beyond was first class! (I lost my sunnies,relised the next day, notified staff and a week later, hey presto! They rang and are posting them home for me). I would truly recommend this company to anyone visiting Tasmania. You won't be disappointed. Special thanks to Mick & Lee who provided us with a day to remember & to the office staff & Steve for locating my sunnies!! "

"We have been to Bruny many times and finally was able to do your cruise. Just the most amazing, exilerating, wonderful thing we have ever done. The winds were very strong and the swells HUGE though so I did have to be confined to the back with my youngest and I filled up on Ginger tablets! Julie and Roger treated each person like they were the only ones on the cruise. So attentive to everyone the whole time they made the trip just that much better. I saw things on that trip my children and I had only ever dreamed of so thank you so very much. Tabatha Murray"

"Me and my wife did this trip on Jan 3, 2011. The most amazing experience we've ever had. Rob and his team are doing a fabulous job. We have to give it up for them on what they are doing in raising awareness towards the importance of the flora and fauna of the region. Its not just a "roller coaster cruise" like many out there but a great educational experience too. "
Jesal Joshi      Melbourne, VIC, Australia      09 Jan 2011


"I did the Bruny Island cruise on Sunday, 11/28, and I must say it was the absolute highlight of my whole trip in Tasmania. The only regret I have is that I decided to do it just before my return; otherwise I would surely do it again! Special thanks to Andrew and Steve, who were, despite the incredibly strong winds, on top of things and creating great fun atmosphere at the same time. In conclusion, I am happy to say that instead of doing a typical and boring tourist cruise I actually lived an unforgettable experience!"

"I would like to convey Bruny Island Cruises my sincere thanks for the top quality service and exceptional friendly and helpful staff. I must admit that before I went on the 3 hour eco trip, I was nervous primarily because I’ve never been comfortable with the sea. However, I’m really glad that I’ve done it. My brother, who also went and who is visiting from the UK, was blown away by the majestic wonder found in this part of Tasmania. Having travelled through many parts of the world and having seen and experienced fantastic spots, my brother and I consider that this tour has to be at the top of the best tours in the world – 100% From the moment we boarded the coach from Kettering, our guide Lee, made us feel welcome at once. His friendly manner and exceptional way he conducted the tour was brilliant. It was truly a great experience. I would thoroughly recommend Bruny Island Cruises and the 3 hour eco trip to anyone wishing to see a marvelous part of Tasmania, but above all, to enjoy the hospitality of its staff from start to finish.

"Absolutely wonderful and great value for money. Three hours of awesome scenic wonders and natural beauty. We saw nine species of birds plus dolphins and seals up close. The Captain was really good about positioning the boat for photos and the commentary was both informative and entertaining. Thank you for providing this service."
Philippa Stanton      Wynyard, Tasmania, Australia      25 Nov 2010


"My husband and I were blown away by the Bruny Island Cruise. Our guide, Robert, made the day relaxing, humorous and adventurous. We had a truly amazing and unforgettable experience. Listening to the seals playing and watching the mother dolphins and babies swim around the boat was spectacular. You helped to capture Mother Nature at her best. Thank you!"
Rebecca      Sydney, NSW, Australia      06 Oct 2010


"Thankyou all for a memory that will live with me forever..had the bestest time...with the best crew..I hope that I have the chance one day to do it again...thankyou all sooo very much "

"Hello! The cruise we went on was FANTASTIC! We saw dolphins..and lots of them! It was great to see Bruny Island as I had never been there before. I really enjoyed it and it was stunning to look at as the weather was beautiful. I am really really happy that we came to Bruny as part of our holiday to Australia- in the UK we havent really got anything like that! Everyone was so friendly and I hope you win the tourism award you deserve. Thanks so much! Hannah :) x"
Hannah      Caterham, Surrey, England      20 Aug 2010


" I had hear about it on a travel show and thought it would be exciting to go on. So, I convinced my husband do the cruise while we were on holidays in Hobart. By far the most memorable part of our holiday. My husband and I were amazed by the beauty of the landscape and marine life. What made it more pleasurable was the enthusiasm and passion of the staff, especially skipper Cole. My husband could not stop smiling during the trip and proudly showed photos of our cruise to family members. It was a wonderful experience I will never forget and will definitely plan to go again on our next trip to Tassie. "
Rachel and Chris Greer      Townsville, Queensland, Australia      30 Jun 2010


"Well it wasn't the best weather for a boat cruise, cold and drizzling, but what a wonderful group of people and experience. Our tour guides were Mick and Andre and from the moment we stepped aboard the bus at Kettering they were friendly, funny and engaging. We took the tour with our two children and Mick and Andre were absolutely wonderful with the kids. We highly recommend the trip to anyone considering going, and make sure you don't miss out on the pumpkin soup, it was delicious. Thanks Guys. Matt, Belinda, Josh & Brittany (The karate kids!!)"
