Have been on previous cruises with the same company on three occasions from Bruny Island, this is the first time out of Tidal River. The ribs that are used are a unique vessel , fast , maneuverable and safe in most weather conditions. The Tidal River vessels are unique again in that they that they have wheels and can enter the sea negating the need to build a jetty. An ATV is parked alongside the vessel that is equipped with steps that make it easy to get on board. The area on the west side of the Prom is studded with Islands , these vessels enable viewing of a number of Island , some inhabited by seals but the most spectacular being Skull Rock. You will need to don the cape provided as occasionally spray will break over the side. The vessel I was on was skippered by Sam who not only navigated the vessel but gave informative details of what we were viewing.Fantastic experience is a most unique vessel with an excellent skipper and crew.. Highly recommend.

Highly recommend this boat trip. We loved seeing the rugged coastline of Wilson’s Prom including the lighthouse, and our skippers Justin and Sam ensured we also saw dolphins and a humpback whale!

Boat, gear and staff first rate and the scenery spectacular. Dolphins and seals pretty good too. Weather cold! The cruise should be on everyone's bucket list.

The Mother Nature is amazing which must to be seen with your own eyes. The guiders’ explanation are actively and detailed. It is definitely worth it.

One of the most interesting and beautiful short adventures you could do.
