The Bruny Island Eco Adventure Cruise will take you to see the famous “Breathing Rock”, the towering cliffs and rocky stacks, exploring sea caves, remote islands and isolated beaches around this beautiful National Marine Park.

Your guide will take you on an epic seafaring journey to meet the local wildlife such as the fur seal colony at The Friars and during the eco cruise, you may encounter a pod of friendly dolphins or see Humpback Whales at play on their migration route during September to December. Your Bruny Island eco cruise includes morning tea and lunch, your ferry crossing and bus trip from Hobart.

The three hour Bruny Island adventure cruise is hosted by world-class guides that are deeply passionate about this unspoilt environment and are thrilled to be able to share with you the spectacular coastal wilderness of South East Tasmania.
