    Pam was very friendly and helpful.
    These guys do a great job. The experience was easy with a stream line process. Pam told us about the main attractions so it made it easy to put an itinerary that got us around the whole island, thanks guys.
    Hi Urangan, thanks for the postive review, We will be sure to pass on the feedback. Team SeaLink Bruny Island.

    Professional and reliable service.
    Great service, extremely well organised, professional, clean and very friendly. They appreciated that we (as tourists) had booked ahead and had our barcode ready. We only had to wait 15 minutes each time, but we made sure we went on a week day, got to Kettering early and left BI in the early afternoon.
    Hi MD, Thank you so much for a wonderful review. It sounds as though you had a great trip to Bruny Island with us. We look forward to having you onboard again soon. Team SeaLink Bruny Island

    Great
    Couldn’t fault the trip over and back , it was smooth and you could get out of your car and chill up in the seats or down on the side with your car or inside your car. Was a bit suss on the loading thoe as cars behind us got on before us on the way over . I think it fits roughly 36 med cars . Took about 20 minutes including loading and disembarking . Be aware a massive line up can occur either side on peak periods. Especially on the way back , check the time tables and everything I found shuts between 4-5pm on Bruny. So peak time would be then to line up. There is a tiny shop at Bruny Sealink site ,but if your in peak holiday season , than grab some travellers for the line up and ferry . Took us an hour .
    Hi there, Thanks for your positive review. We are glad you found your travel to and from Bruny Island was a smooth one. Queuing over the summer period can occur however we are moving more cars per hour than ever before. Regarding your comment with "travellers" - alcohol is prohibited at the terminal and onboard our vessels. Safety on our roads and onboard is our number one priority. Team SeaLink Bruny Island

Our regular trips on the Bruny Island ferry are always efficient and without fuss. From the ticket box to the onboard crew, the staff members are professional and friendly.

An incredible thrill seeking experience. The views of the Tasman island coastline from the boat are very unique and the wildlife we saw was amazing. I’d highly recommend this trip.

Love Bruny Island, but the Sealink Ferry service is abysmal! Waited hours in the queue, both coming and going, and absolutely spoilt any quality time we expected to have on the Island with family. Get your act together Sealink!!!

Hi there, thanks for your constructive feedback. We understand that extended queuing can occur on popular times such as long weekends and throughout the summer period. We are moving more cars per hour than ever before as well as running additional services on peak days. Team SeaLink Bruny Island

Almost a mini cruise in its own right, this ferry copes with foot passengers too.
It runs regularly from Kettering on the mainland to Russell Bay on the island. Great views.

Long wait times. Continued poor service puts me off visiting Bruny Island. Think carefully about time you intend to visit.

Hi Blair, thanks for taking the time to provide constructive feedback. We do experience extended queues over peak periods, we recommend heading to Bruny Island early in the day and also when coming back off the island if possible. This does alleviate the wait time over the busy periods.

We took a day trip to Bruny Island with our dog. The ferry trip was good, very well run and we didn't have to wait long. New ferry much faster than the old one.

It's a great service and reasonably priced. The crew obviously do this day in and day out and used to dealing with tourists not knowing what to do and manage it all with a smile.
