What you can expect

Guests will enjoy a scenic bus tour from Hobart including a ferry crossing to Bruny Island on the South East Coast of Tasmania. This multi-award-winning nature cruise to Bruny Island takes you to explore the fascinating wildlife and stunning geological features that surround Bruny Island.

Climb aboard a custom-made yellow boat designed to maximise viewing of nature and surrounds. These vessels are fast, safe and comfortable taking you right into the heart of the action and will get you as close to the local Tasmanian wildlife as you can get! The Bruny Island Eco Adventure Cruise will take you to see the famous "Breathing Rock", the towering cliffs and rocky stacks, exploring sea caves, remote islands and isolated beaches around this beautiful National Marine Park.

Your guide will take you on an epic seafaring journey to meet the local wildlife such as the fur seal colony at The Friars and during the eco cruise, you may encounter a pod of friendly dolphins or see Humpback Whales at play on their migration route during September to December. Your Bruny Island eco cruise includes morning tea and lunch, your ferry crossing and bus trip from Hobart.

The three hour Bruny Island adventure cruise is hosted by world-class guides that are deeply passionate about this unspoilt environment and are thrilled to be able to share with you the spectacular coastal wilderness of South East Tasmania. This multi award-winning eco tourism adventure cruise is not to be missed - it is the ultimate Tasmanian wilderness experience.

Guests are to meet at 7:30 am at the Hobart Waterfront Book Centre at Franklin Wharf for a 7:45 am departure and will return around 5:30 pm in the afternoon. The tour also includes morning tea and lunch as well as hotel drop offs.

First congratulations to all staff at Pennicott Tours

First congratulations to all staff at Pennicott Tours. The young lady at wharf - delightful. Bus driver Nick, a real joy to drive with & very delightful & knowledgeable about Hobart & surrounds. Boat cruise with Hamish & Max. What a wonderful experience. Hamish very good at his job, taking us to the best areas to caves & wildlife. Max was good too. Lunch was scrumptious, local fish, chips & salad. This day will never be forgotten, will be telling all in Sydney come to Hobart & do this tour. Thank you Pennicott Tours.

This was by far one of the best tours I have ever been on in my life

This was by far one of the best tours I have ever been on in my life. Our guides Sam and Huge were so much fun and make the experience that much better. We managed to see some dolphins while we would out on the water and even though it had started raining by the end of our tour, it didn't matter much because it was just an incredible experience. Lunch was also delicious. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Hobart!
