This tour is a fabulous way to see the Bruny Island coastline. Being right up close to the sheer jagged cliffs, inside a cave, among the the kelp, splashed by sea spray at the blowhole (or from the waves!!) or getting up close and personal to the sea lions, this Pennicott cruise has something for everyone. From the staff at the centre who welcome you to the Island, to the crew of the boat who welcome you aboard, you get a sense that they all love what they are doing and want you to enjoy your experience with them. Long oilskin coats are handed out to all the passengers to protect their clothing, for those that might suffer from seasickness, ginger tablets are passed around before setting out, and on the return journey a little chocolatey treat is offered as well. We had Michael as our ‘skipper’ and Ben as ‘first mate’. Both were informative, funny, and considerate of their passengers at all times. Our party of 4 adults thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it

Great experience! Our guide knew so many facts about the past and present that even my nanna didn’t know and she’s local, we were taken down all three rivers and told the history, I had a 2 and 4 year old in tow who also loved the boats and animals we passed while we got to listen to the history loved it

The whole experience was awesome from the scenery,commentary and food. We booked Main Deck Window and the view from our seat was fine. You can move throughout the boat so getting that great photo is easy. Staff very friendly and helpful.

The weather was a bit iffy,the crew were great and very friendly, overall a great experience.

Awesome trip. Definitely recommend. Friendly informative staff.
