We have done both the Bruny Island and Tasman Island cruises with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. They are both wonderful but if you can only do one, the Tasman Island cruise is the more stunning. Breathtaking coastal scenery and Tasmanian wildlife up close is what this is all about and the people who run the tours are utterly professional. If you... More

We actually came down to Port Arthur to visit the Port Arthur site and do the Ghost tour while on holiday, Did this as a side trip with the family while we were here. We found this one of the best boat trips we have ever been on. Great experience, friendly informative staff and good fun!

You get to see so much on this trip! We had good weather so were able to go from port Arthur round to eaglehawk neck, the coastline is breathtaking. It was calm enough to be able to go into the caves which was an amazing experience. The hosts were really friendly and knowledgeable, and made sure that enough time was... More

The cruise was incredible, staff friendly and the vistas were overwhelming. The staff took time to ensure that each side of the boat had great views of the rocks, seals and birds. The three hour cruise took in all the sights. The full length red coats provided kept us warm and dry. A tip is to sit on the right... More

We did the morning boat ride which took us all around the Tasman Peninsula and the Port Arthur historic sites and loved every minute of it. We were worried about the boat ride as we had an 8month old with us, but our boat guide made sure we were safe and comfortable throughout our 3 hour journey. We saw lots... More
