Bruny Island Cruises by Pennicott Wilderness Journeys

Robert Pennicott and his team of passionate local guides have been showcasing Bruny Island on their award-winning cruises since 1999. Bruny Island Cruises explores the awesome rugged coastline of the South Bruny National Park in Southern Tasmania in custom built, iconic yellow boats. This eco adventure was recognised as Australia’s Best Tourist Attraction in 2012, 2014 and 2015 with silver medals in 2013 and 2016.

The stunning wilderness journey takes you beneath giant Jurassic dolerite sea cliffs, towering crags and into deep sea caves. You’ll experience close encounters with abundant wildlife such as Australian and New Zealand fur seals, bottlenose and common dolphins, migrating whales and seabirds, including thousands of shearwaters, diving gannets, terns, little penguins, petrels, cormorants, sea eagles and albatross wheeling on the wind.

A fisherman before he became a tourism operator, Robert has always been passionate about quality Tasmanian seafood. In December 2017, he opened Bruny Island Cruises Seafood Restaurant with the goal of producing the best fish and chips in the world. The restaurant offers a menu of tantalising, freshly caught local and Tasmanian seafood dishes, designed to satisfy the hunger that comes from cruising the Southern Ocean. A diverse range of local wines and Tasmanian artisan brews are on hand to match your meal. The contemporary dining space includes indoor and outdoor seating, with gorgeous views of Adventure Bay.

The Pennicott team is dedicated to operating in harmony with the environment and local community. Pennicott Wilderness Journeys is 100 per cent carbon offset and regularly exceeds best practice standards for efficient fuel, energy and water use.

Driven by a desire to give back to the environment and community that has supported him, Robert established the Pennicott Foundation for important philanthropic activities. A portion of each cruise ticket goes towards the foundation.
