Default Bruny Island Boat Trip Worth It? How Good on Tasmania??

From the Sidney Morning Herald two days ago, they have this headline: "Top tourist attraction named at annual awards" with these highlights: "Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park has taken top gong for major tourist attraction at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards announced Friday night. Maria Island Walk in Tasmania for adventure tourism. Tasmanian operator Pennicott Wilderness Journeys was recognised for excellence in sustainable tourism and its Bruny Island cruises won gold in both the tourist attractions and ecotourism categories."

In looking at
http://www.brunycruises.com.au
these Bruny Island Cruise tours from either Hobart or from Adventure Bay on Bruny Island, seem very, very interesting. Reactions?? You would board one of their custom-designed boats for three-hour cruise along the coastline of Bruny Island and its rugged Southern Tasmanian coastline. They note you would experience sea and coastal wildlife such as seals, dolphins, whales, albatross and other seabirds. You would be along the bottom of Bruny Island's towering sea cliffs, be surrounded by 1000's of seals and watching dolphins surf on the bow wave of the boat. They say their boats are especially designed for eco-cruising with an open design and flexibility to allow passengers to get up as close as possible to sea and coastal wildlife, cliff faces, sea-caves and passing between the narrow gap between the coast and The Monument, a tall and slender sea stack.

This clearly merits more research, checking and thinking for what would be best to do on Tasmania. Great to have such good options.

THANKS for sharing any added reactions, inputs on this option! Enjoy! Terry in Ohio
