This is a must do. Pennicott Wilderness Journeys run the Tasman island cruise. Magnificent scenery, awesome wildlife a must do! I was staying at Port Arthur and left from there. Staff are great and the whole trip was wow. Would highly recommend.

The Tasman Island cruise is amazing. Both my wife and I had a great time. It was cold on the day we went but they tell you up front to come rugged up. The scenery is breathtaking we saw dolphins seals ans lots of bird life as well as the amazing coastline. The crew are great from booking to getting off the boat. It is worth every cent we paid. We had the early cruise leaving time to visit other sights in port Arthur. Well worth the drive. Thanks for a great day

The 3-hour cruise was, without doubt, our best experience in Tassie. The weather was awesome and I'll never forget the scenery and the excitement. The crew was awesome and I really envy them for being able to do this every day. It was one of those experiences which really make any travel special. We took the complete day tour with them (including the Port Arthur visit). The entire experience from booking to the drop back was perfect. We were a bit concerned initially about our not-yet-2 year old toddler but he was the one who enjoyed the most - what with all the seals, cormorants, dolphins and the bounce of the waves. It is a bit of a problem for those prone to motion sickness. But there were people who came there knowing it's going to be rough and for good reason, I think. It is indeed a unique experience and definitely worth the money.

Go for it!

Having now done the Tasman Island cruise with Pennicotts twice now, i can say that if you have sea legs, enjoy the wind rushing through your hair, like some action and speed and do not mind some challenging waves being pierced and the thrill of nature at its best....... then this is a cruise thats most certainly for you. The most recent time i went we saw dolphins, sea birds and of course the great awe inspiring towering cliffs (the highest in Australia) as well as the various caverns and blow holes along the course they take. Great staff, well informed and equipped and always able to provoke a laugh. The first time we went the weather was foul and the seas were wicked, and amazingly it just made the trip all the more better, although a little blue sky and sunshine always adds an element that softens the vista. I could do this again without any hesitation. Enjoy !
