Robert Pennicott's award winning three hour wilderness cruise takes you along the spectacular coastline between Eaglehawk Neck and Port Arthur. You will see Australia's highest sea cliffs, enter deep sea caves and join in the search for abundant sea and coastal wildlife, such as seals, dolphins and sea birds. The custom built boats are ideal for viewing dramatic coastline and wildlife with covered open-aired seating providing an excellent all round view and connection with the environment. This tour can also be extended to include Port Arthur Historic Site or Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park.

Itinerary

The Full Day Tour departs from the Pennicott Wilderness Journeys Booking Centre. This is situated on Hobart's waterfront on Franklin Wharf, next to the Constitution Dock Lifting Bridge. Please check-in by 7.30am for a 7.45am departure. We take a 90 minute drive to join the cruise which departs at 10am. The custom built yellow boats are ideal for viewing the spectacular coastline and wildlife of the Tasman Peninsula. The coastline is part of the Tasman National Park. It is home to a variety of wildlife including hundreds of seals, migrating whales and abundant sea birds in their thousands. At any time of year you're likely to see the feeding frenzy of diving gannets, albatross and sea eagles wheeling on the wind, cliff-nesting cormorants and peregrine falcons, or a pod of playful dolphins surfing the bow wave of the boat. We follow the cruise with sightseeing in Port Arthur. Then we return to Hobart, arriving at around 6pm with a CBD hotel drop off.
