Bruny Island Cruises is the original and most famous of the Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. Operating since 1999, the company provides 3 hour wilderness cruises along the spectacular coastline of the South Bruny National Park.

Tasmania's Best Tourist Attraction 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015, this multi-award winning cruise was also published by Travel + Leisure as one of the 100 Greatest Trips of the World.

You will cruise alongside some of Australia’s highest sea cliffs, drift up close to listen to the awesome ‘Breathing Rock’, enter sea caves, pass through the narrow gap between the coast and ‘The Monument’, a tall slender stack and feel the power of nature at the point where the Tasman Sea meets the might of the Southern Ocean.

Join the enthusiastic and informative crew in the search for the abundant coastal wildlife such as seals, dolphins, migrating whales, birds of prey, albatross and many other varieties of sea birds.

The distinctive yellow boats are safe, comfortable and sea-kindly vessels. Purpose built for the rugged coast of southern Tasmania, their unmatched maneuverability gets you closer to cliff faces and into deep sea caves.

Drive yourself to Adventure Bay, meet the tour bus at Kettering or join the Full Day Tour from Hobart. Tours operate every day of the year, except Christmas Day.
