Book your tour


Step aboard our state-of-the-art vessel Wild Thing II at Hobart’s waterfront for an exhilarating exploration of Tasmania’s River Derwent and Storm Bay. With 360-degree views from every seat, you won’t miss a thing. See the Iron Pot, Australia’s second-oldest lighthouse, and watch for wildlife including dolphins and penguins. You’ll even plumb the depths, thanks to live vision beamed direct from our remote operated underwater camera. And with four, 350HP Yamaha outboards powering your voyage, you’ll really feel the wind in your hair. You’ll cross the Sydney to Hobart finish line at the conclusion of your tour, energised and ready for your next adventure. You only live once — experience the elements!


Wild Thing Adventures began operation in 2006, delivering a range of extremely successful products in Wild Thing—a 26-seat eco adventure vessel. Wild Thing’s most successful tours were without doubt the eco wildlife cruises the company offered around Bruny Island. Owner Glen Shackclothe had created these tours out of 16 years’ experience as a commercial abalone diver around Bruny Island and Tasmania’s south coast. Glen’s knowledge of wildlife (both above and below the sea), coastline, weather conditions and seal colonies made him the ultimate host for an expedition into the Bruny Island wilderness. In early 2008, Hobart Cruises acquired Wild Thing Adventures, thereby completing the vision for the Bruny Wildlife Adventure. The intention for the product is clear—the best wildlife expedition in Tasmania. The Bruny Wildlife Adventure represents the coming together of two incredibly successful products to create the ultimate day of exhilaration and adventure, luxury and relaxation.
