  • I had an awesome trip on the Tasman Island Cruise. You can see why they have such great reviews. The staff are happy and passionate. The boats are well maintained and comfortable. We were very lucky with the conditions and had very playful dolphins and seals and even a humpback whale 🐋 make its presence known! Their trips are insanely good value for the experience you get!
  • This is a tour worth its weight in gold! Once-in-lifetime views of the peninsula and so up close as well - with a fantastic team. Our bus driver was named Marni (not sure how it’s spelt, but he drove us on 13/06/22), and we would like to say how thankful we are regarding how patient and professional he was during our tour. He was a lovely guy and we hope he remains in the business (even though on our day, there were quite a few people pushing ALL of our buttons!). He was very sincere and attentive, especially when myself and my partner accidentally stayed a bit too long at the lavender farm and he came back in to escort us back to the bus, without being angry or pushy. He goes out of way to be nice to everyone, and we hope he knows that it doesn’t go unnoticed! Our boat drivers were named Andrew and Will, who were also very knowledgeable and very approachable. They were kind enough to always turn the boat 360 degrees so everyone on each side of the boat could get some photos of the gorgeous sights around. We were out on quite a choppy day and they handled the boat with great skill and ensured we were all safe, but still getting quality views. They frequently checked if everyone was doing alright because of these rough conditions. Pennicott Wilderness Journeys is led by a fantastic team and I couldn’t recommend them enough. I hope if my review is enough to compel someone to book a tour with these guys, they are lucky enough to get Marni as their driver, and Will and Andrew as their boat people - as they made our experience so memorable and unique.
