The two staff on our Bruny Island Cruise amused us with stories associated with the land and sea as we motored south. Pertinent information was interspersed with comfortable “Dad jokes”. With only ten visitors on board instead of about 3 dozen or more, we had lots of space to move around and change seats, and getting ‘that good photo’ was made easy. There was a sense of inter-activeness with the landscape as the pilot took us into large crevasses and caves and closely within metres of the kelp and rocks. The first and fourth photos were taken by Jeanette.
Then, with no advance warning so that passengers could not scream ‘No’, we whizzed through a narrow space aided by rolling seas, between what the staff referred to as the King and Queen. The experience was over in a flash and then we looked back in wonder at the tiny gap through which we had passed. The photos below, by Jeanette, gives some idea of the space and the height of those gigantic pillars.
We motored close to the cliffs.
For a while clouds shielded the sky.
And then it was time to continue the journey southwards.
