"Absolutely fantastic, the highlight of our trip to Tasmania. Ben and Yanni were the best, so enthusiastic and they were as stoked as us on the sighting of not 1, not 2 but 3 Orcas.
We also saw seals, albatross, dolphins and a penguin as well as the magnificent shoreline. We plan to do the Bruny Island cruise with you guys on our next trip. Thank you so much for all of your conservation work.
Cheers Kath & Paul"

"Abosolute Must..we took cruise on 12th March 2013 on the Yellow boat. The crew memebers Yanni and David were amazing. Being friendly and taking care of passengers is fantastic. Their knowledge and insight into the geological and historical aspects of the Tasman and inaround places was amazing..If you are in tasmania...Absolute Must..."

"I have just been on my second Tasman Cruise, even better than the first time, and I didn't think that was possible!! The fires down that area have NOT stopped the cruise from operating twice a day - get down there and have the time of your life with these wonderful people!! Thank you again Damo and Damo."
Cheryl Reid Stanthorpe, Qld, Australia 12 Feb 2013
"We came down to the area after the bushfires to spend the weekend. Ummmed and Arrahed whether we should do the cruise but it was the highlight of our weekend. Kids loved it (still talking about Tim and Kane !!) these guys thanked us for coming on board. No we thank you for a life time experience !! xxx the Free Family"
Linda Free Hobart, Tasmania, Australia 03 Feb 2013
"My dad and I went on the cruise on the 20th September it was great except for the rain and wind.The crew is a laugh and make your trip even better.They constantly check if you are going to be sea sick (it's only because they don't want there boat to get dirty).If you are not feeling the best they will do everything they can to make you feel better,so you can enjoy the trip. I would recommended it to anybody.
Amber Cooper Devonport, Tasmania, Australia 29 Sep 2012
"What a way to spend your birthday!!!
Alas, the weather didn't want to come to the party and we had to shorten the trip BUT we had the best time. The Skipper and his first mate(ess) were terrific and kept us entertained the whole trip. Even with the rough seas the entire boat had a fun time
( Luna Park comes to mind). Will be doing the Brunny island trip next time.
Thanks to everyone at Tasman Cruises for a wonderful day. See you soon!"
Lois Launikonis Melbourne, Victoria, Australia 15 Sep 2012

Maree McKay Greenbank Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 27 Mar 2012
"I experienced this adventure on the 14th/jan/2012. Totally professional from start to finish. Our guides/boat crew (Damien &Damien)were very informative,amusing and entertaining( and constantly checked on everyone's comfort and wellbeing).In there quest to try and find us a dolphin on our retrurn trip they instead found a seal feeding frenzy which was just metres from our boat,awesome!. An exhilerating and memorable experience.:)"

Tess hunter Melbourne, Victoria, Australia 17 Jan 2012
"I went on this trip with my school about three or four weeks ago. It was amazing! Everyone loved it. Everyone. It was by far the best thing we did on our trip to Tassie and I hope to de it again one day, that's how much i enjoyed it. None of us wanted it to end.
We saw wales and seals and penguins and jellyfish. The rocks were really cool and I got some great photos.
I am a keen photographer and about halfway through the trip 'Damo' got out his camera and showed my friends and I some absolutely AMAZING photos. I was inspired.
Thank you so much, this was an unforgettable experience.
Words can't describe how amazing it was and every time someone mentions our trip, I bring the cruise up. Always!
IT WAS AMAZING!!!
Thank you, thank you and thank you again."

"The receptionist was great, the crew – Ben and Damien – were fantastic, and the trip was absolutely awesome. The crew had real enthusiasm for the environment and the area and were fun, informative and attentive – to the whole boatload of us. Really good value for money. We saw Ben a couple of times again as we traveled through Tassie and he treated us like old friends. We would do it again with you guys and will certainly recommend you to our friends."
Kevin Lawson Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 20 Mar 2011
"On our way in Australia we´ve seen many national parks and we went on a few cruises there too. But we have to say that Tasman cruise was one the best. We saw many animals and also the crew (a holland girl and a boy) with who we went were so nice. It was obvious that they loved their job.

"Words can't even describe how enthralling and worthwhile the tasman cruze was. As country kids this was LITERALLY our first TASTE of the ocean. Man... you guys left a memory that will last a life time. Damo and Davo? have got to be two of the most gorgeous men, their vigour was immensely inspirational. Thankyou"
Miller family Yass, NSW, Australia 20 Jan 2011
"We wanted to do a cruise but the one we enquired about was booked out. Was excited when we came across Ben at the Salamanca Markets. Booked ourselves in while we were there. Ben and Tim are absolute assets to your company so don't let them go! We will be telling everyone we know in Sydney who is even thinking about visiting Tassie that the Tasman Island Cruise (on the yellow boat) is an absolute must. An amazing part of the world that the guys obviously love showing. Thanks for a fantastic time. Donna and Anne the travelling sisters."

Donna Nathalia, Vic, Australia 20 Apr 2010
"Hello I would just like to say a massive thank you for the experience of your Tasman Island Cruise! My Husband, David and I were on the afternoon cruise this Saturday (April 10th) and had a truly magnificent experience. The captivating and dramatic beauty of the coast line alone was overwhelming, however, the genuine passion and fun nature of the crew (Damo, Ben & Hayley) and their enthusiasm to share their knowledge and ensure our comfort and enjoyment made them perfect hosts. This combination culminated in an exceptional customer service experience and as a Tasmanian I am very proud to be able to recommend such a wonderful package to friends - local, interstate and overseas! My face was sore all night from smiling and David and I are still talking about it! Thank you, once again, for a fantastic, educational and fun time! "
Amy Genford Hobart, Tas, Australia 14 Apr 2010
