We were lucky enough to do this trip and loved every minute. The views are spectacular and the staff are very friendly and informative. The trip takes about 4 1/2 hours and if you are lucky enough you will see dolphins and whales. Our trip was quite rough but at no time did we feel unsafe. We saw lots of waterfalls, caves, seals and lots of beautiful beaches. Highly recommend this trip. 5 stars from us. ??????????

As a local who has grown up enjoying the Tassie coastline and boating I was blown away by how much I enjoyed this recent trip! Our family of four includes two girls, 8yo & 5yo (pink beanie) and we had some lunch (ice-cream & oysters!) at the visitor centre at Adventure Bay before getting on board. The boat was really impressive - a powerful seagoing boat that felt really safe and we felt like we were on a big adventure as we headed down the coast. The guides were really friendly and knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble and they gave fascinating commentary on everything that was going on about us. Highlights of the trip was the dramatic coastline, wildlife and knowing that we were in good hands. Oh, and the seals!! These guys have a worldclass reputation and it’s easy to see why. We couldn’t recommend them more!

Went on a Tasman Island Cruise with Pennicott and totally enjoyed myself. Theuy even offered ginger pills in case we get seasick as the waters could be pretty choppy. Love the views around the island. Saw some birds and wildlife here. And they will rotate the boat so that every one get an opportunity to see and take photos. Very well organised. Highly recommended.
