The Peppermint Bay Lunch Cruise from Hobart

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take a 5-hour lunch cruise on the River Derwent from Hobart. As you enter the d’Entrecasteaux Channel, dolphins will guide you into the pristine waters of Peppermint Bay. Overlooking the picturesque Bruny Island, a stop at the Peppermint Bay hotel boasts the perfect setting to enjoy your delicious lunch on the waters edge. 
  • Tour from Hobart to Peppermint Bay on a catamaran for views from the water 
  • Learn about the history, culture, and environment of the area from a guide 
  • Relax and enjoy the scenery while a captain takes care of navigation 
  • Locally sourced lunch at the Peppermint Bay Hotel
What to Expect
Arrive at the Brooke Street Pier for your cruise's departure; step on board, find a comfortable seat, and enjoy the scenery while the captain takes care of the navigation. This cruise allows you to travel to Peppermint Bay via the pleasant water route and relax along the way. Travel down to the Derwent River and through the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, where dolphins often accompany the boat. Listen to your guide's commentary about the area's culture, history, and environment to learn much more than you would on your own. When you arrive in Peppermint Bay, disembark at the Peppermint Bay Hotel for a lunch made from locally sourced produce. Take a stroll around Woodbridge and enjoy views across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel to Bruny Island before returning to Hobart in the pleasant, relaxing way you came.

Dear Shiela, We’re sorry to hear of your less than satisfactory experience with our Peppermint Bay Lunch Cruise. Our restaurant and chefs use only fresh seasonal produce from our own kitchen garden and from local produces. When booking we ask our customers for any dietaries and then we can cater for these. Unfortunately we did not know that you or your husband did not eat lamb. We value our customers opinions and would like to thank you for your feedback, we are sorry that your day was not up to the expectations and hope you have a lovely rest of your trip.
