We actually came down to Port Arthur to visit the Port Arthur site and do the Ghost tour while on holiday, Did this as a side trip with the family while we were here. We found this one of the best boat trips we have ever been on. Great experience, friendly informative staff and good fun!

You get to see so much on this trip! We had good weather so were able to go from port Arthur round to eaglehawk neck, the coastline is breathtaking. It was calm enough to be able to go into the caves which was an amazing experience. The hosts were really friendly and knowledgeable, and made sure that enough time was... More

The cruise was incredible, staff friendly and the vistas were overwhelming. The staff took time to ensure that each side of the boat had great views of the rocks, seals and birds. The three hour cruise took in all the sights. The full length red coats provided kept us warm and dry. A tip is to sit on the right... More

We did the morning boat ride which took us all around the Tasman Peninsula and the Port Arthur historic sites and loved every minute of it. We were worried about the boat ride as we had an 8month old with us, but our boat guide made sure we were safe and comfortable throughout our 3 hour journey. We saw lots... More

Great trip, with spectacular scenery and plenty of wildlife. You can't experience these unique parts of tassie unless by boat and the Tasman Island Cruises seems to be the best was to get on the water and take it all in.

This was our second time on the Tasman Island Cruise and it definitely did not disappoint. Our deck hand and skipper, Damo and Hamish were a wealth of knowledge and could not hide their passion for the area and all it offers if they tried. Their enthusiasm added to our experience. Wildlife and scenic coastline, this adventure has it all.... More

We did the morning Tasman Island cruise with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. We departed Port Arthur at 9.30am for a 10am cruise. There were three full 'yellow' boats on the morning we went. We were able to do the entire trip down the Tasman Peninsula from Eaglehawk Neck to Tasman Island due to excellent weather. We saw the Tasman Arch, Candlestick... More

Towering cliffs and sea caves made for a sensational journey around the southern coast, with plenty of dolphins joining us at one point and big colonies of sea lions to watch on Tasman Island. The crew is experienced, the boat was very safe and the commentary was great. Our skipper steered us into some fantastic areas a metre or two... More
