A peaceful experience
, May 2021
A very informative tour. Lots of interesting and pertinent information. It was a peaceful and almost meditative experience as we comfortably floated across the Derwent and saw Hobart from a different perspective. The food was good and we enjoyed friendly service. It might be a good idea to clean the tables and seats between tours in this time of COVID.
Insightful Historical Cruise
, May 2021
Although we have been to Hobart times since my first visit in 1975, South Route Cruise was very relaxing and provided us with many new insights from the very knowledgeable commentary from Capt. O'Toole. Well Done! Cheers peterg
Very Pleasant Cruise
, May 2021
A very enjoyable cruise. Staff were lovely and food was good. Highlight was Penguins running around the base of the bridge pylons. Shame the staff did not let passengers know.
Friendly, great commentary. Delicious food.

The scenery, commentary , food & people running it. Recommend it to everyone. ✔️👌very pleasant time out . Loved learning about the history of Tassie. They just now need to follow the South Sydney Rabbitohs NRL team and that would make it number 1
Holiday excursion

The commentary by the captain of the boat was very good. We all learnt a lot of interesting facts about Hobart and surrounding suburbs. The hour cruise was a good length of time for our group of 5.

April afternoon cruise up the Derwent River

Fantastic and laid back cruise north of the Derwent River Harbour. The captain was quite knowledgeable and engaging with his commentary that had the right touch of humour.
Very good

The captain was very informative and the staff on the boat were great also, it was a great experience seeing different areas of Hobart from the River.
Great short cruise
, Apr 2021
Great info and views. Had the whole ship to ourselves. Very pleasant cruising the bay with sun shining and a cold beverage. Unfortunately got charged in $US and unable to change.
Oh Captain, my Captain
