Bruny Island Cruises and Tasman Island Cruises


Australian tourism legend Robert Pennicott and his team of passionate local guides have been sharing Tasmania with travellers since 1999.   Over its seventeen-year history, it has won multiple awards including 12 Australian and 26 Tasmanian Tourism Awards.

Today, Pennicott Wilderness Journeys operates five experiences in southern Tasmania - Bruny Island Cruises, Tasman Island Cruises, Iron Pot Cruises, Tasmanian Seafood Seduction and Bruny Island Traveller. 

Bruny Island Cruises and Tasman Island Cruises allow travellers to experience the spectacular national park coastlines of Bruny Island and the Tasman Peninsula.
