What you can expect

Head out on an epic journey to visit one of Australia's most unique and unusual islands - the flat and rugged Tasman Island - on an amazing full day tour including an unforgettable three hour Tasman Island cruise. The full day tour will take you from Hobart aboard a bus to then join your wilderness guides and board a purpose-built high-speed boat engineered for maximum stability.

You will embark on a trip to view the home of the highest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere. Known for its array of sea caves and towering rock formations, Tasman Island is home to a range of impressive wildlife and on this tour you'll be able to get up close with hundreds of seals, spot dolphins in the waters, and witness thousands of seabirds ranging from falcons to the massive albatross swooping through the skies.

The huge, flat island is one of the most remarkable sights in the ocean, and your experienced guides will provide interesting and entertaining commentary on the geography and history of how Tasman Island was used both past and present. This is set to be a day filled with beautiful sights and informative commentary about the region.

A magnificent, unforgettable experience. If anyone gets the opportunity, this tour should be definitely tried.

This tour was absolutely fantastic. It was run on time. The driver was kind and cautious. All the staff were attentive. We had a very delicious lunch. The only problem that was really annoying was the boat itself. We were seated at the back of the boat which unfortunately had a very restricted view. Most of the time we were trying to find a window between the back of the captain and the side wall of the boat to be able to see the nature. It wasn’t fair at all to pay the same price as others sitting in-front of the captain having wide view. The captain tried his best to compensate for the situation but it still hurts remembering how we felt. This tours is magnificent but I suggest not selling the two back rows of the boat. Otherwise you can be sure you will never forget how beautiful is Tasman Island.

Highly recommended! Pennicot Wilderness Journey crew were great. They look after their customers. A must do while in Hobart, Tasmania.

This is a must see adventure. They offer sea sickness tablets before the journey. The grandeur of it all will keep you wanting more. A lot of wow, look at that, excellent, magnificent. Mitch our bus driver was great and entertaining. Ben and Angs were also great with the cruise. Vast knowledge. We were able to see group of dolphins which was a bonus. The booking did not give options. We found out on the day that there are different options that are part of the tour, like lavender farm or historic sights at Port Arthur, or Tasmanian devil zoo. We are so grateful to Mitch that he was able to change our land visit to the historic port Arthur for addition small fee.
