Left Coles Bay and looked forward to the trip. We weren't disappointed. Commentary was informative. Lunch was a bento box full of Tasmanian produce. Staff were amazing in helping people who were seasick. Wineglass Bay was a highlight. Saw dolphins, seals and lots of birds.

We thought this was going to be a sedate cruise to a tranquil bay. Maybe we were naive as we were relying on our agent's information. Boat and crew were excellent but the ginger sea sickness tablets didn't work.The first part of the cruise in the bay was pleasant and we were lucky to see a white breasted eagle. Then... More

Thank you for your response to our cruise, yes unfortunately the Peninsula can get rough at times due to the wind and yes we do go out to open sea to get to Wineglass Bay which is on the eastern side of the Peninsula which is on the Tasman Ocean side, so some days like any sea can be flat... More

We had been to Wineglass Bay before and hiked the tracks and this time we thought we would indulge in a cruise. We checked out the website and decided WBC was what we were looking for. They offer two different decks which have different prices. Our hotel had advised us of a special that WGB was offering over the weekend... More

Great day. Trip is approx 4 hours around Freycinet Peninsula. Great commentary, ploughman's lunch included (all local ingredients). See areas of the coast you cannot walk to. Little bit rough on way back but provided travel calm ginger tablets before you leave (preventative only). Staff extremely helpful to ensure you have a good time. We had dolphins swim with the...

The Wineglass Bay Cruise was a relaxing, scenic way to see the Freycinet Peninsula. We were traveling with two kids under 5 and they loved exploring the boat and watching the scenery. The lunch offered was delicious and filling. The crew was friendly, sociable and knew a lot about the wildlife and geology of the area. We were able to... More

Such a delightful day out in the company of the wineglass bay cruise crew. Not only was the boat we travelled on in excellent condition and modern throughout but the crew were all trained to cover every need before you thought of it yourself. We enjoyed the Sky Lounge upstairs where we were treated to extras throughout the day. A... More

My friends & I went on this wonderful 4hr cruise on the 8th December 2016. We were lucky to have calm weather unlike days later & our Maria Island cruise to seal island which was also marvellous even though it came to thudding end due to change of the swell..huge!! To choose the best is impossible as both are different... More

This is a full day experience and worth every cent. We upgraded to the lounge upstairs and you get excellent service, fabulous food and wine and no crowds. There is plenty of room for everyone to take fabulous photos of dolphins chasing the boat and of course beautiful Wineglass Bay.

Great views, great guides, great local food for lunch, can get a little choppy on the water so if unsure take the ginger tablets offered,
