Pennicott Wilderness Journeys

Join a Bruny Island Cruise, departing from Adventure Bay or a Tasman Island Cruise departing from Port Arthur where you will cruise alongside some of Australia’s highest sea cliffs, enter deep sea caves and join in the search for abundant sea and coastal wildlife such as seals, dolphins and sea birds.
