Take a Full Day Tour from Hobart and spend a day on Bruny Island including a guided return bus tour, three hour cruise, morning tea and lunch. Robert Pennicott’s multi-award winning wilderness cruise takes you along Bruny Island’s rugged coast beneath some of Australia’s highest sea cliffs. You will enter deep sea caves and join in the search for wildlife such as seals, dolphins and sea birds. The custom built boats are ideal for viewing the spectacular coastline and wildlife with covered open-air seating providing an excellent all round view and connection with the environment.



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 7.45am. We drive from Hobart to Kettering for the ferry crossing to Bruny Island. We have morning tea and then enjoy a 3 hour wilderness cruise. Afterwards, there is time for sightseeing before returning to Hobart at approximately 5:30pm. Make sure you dress warmly for the cruise - warm jackets, scarves, beanies and gloves are recommended. And don't forget your camera!
