Tasman Island Cruises - Port Arthur TASMANIA

Tasman Island Cruises showcases the spectacular coastline of the Tasman Peninsula, between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck. It is another quality experience from Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, winners of the Australian Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism 2012.  



  Tasman Island Cruises operates daily all year round except for Christmas Day.

Guests can choose to drive themselves to Port Arthur, just 90 minutes south of Hobart to join a 3 hour cruise, or meet our local guides in Hobart for a Full Day Tour including return guided bus tour, morning tea and lunch. An optional visit to the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park, or the Port Arthur Historic Site can also be included.

Experience the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere. Enter deep-sea caves; see wonderful wildlife, hundreds of seals, migrating whales and abundant bird species in the thousands. At any time of the year you’re likely to see the feeding frenzy of diving gannets, albatross and sea eagles wheeling on the wind, cliff-nesting peregrine falcons and playful dolphins surfing the bow wave of the boat.

The custom built yellow boats are ideal for viewing the spectacular coastline and wildlife of the Tasman Peninsula. Covered open-air tiered seating means an excellent all-round view and connection with the environment. Nicknamed the ‘4WD’s of the sea’ for their unequalled sea-keeping abilities these boats are safe, comfortable and gentle on the environment due to their fuel efficiency, low emission and quiet operation.

The highly-trained interpretive guides love what they do – they work hard to ensure that the experience of all of their guests is fun, enjoyable, entertaining and informative.

Bookings are essential.
