  • Spectacular scenery, good boatmanship but for me, when the commentary is shouted at you for the entire trip, it takes away from the experience.

  • This is brilliant. No better way to view the stunning coastline than with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. The boats, staff and commentary are all world class, the only thing they don't match is the scenery which is in a league of its own. Highly recommended
  • One of the most spectacular tours we’ve ever been on!! Anna and Chris looked after our safety like true professionals you can see they really love their work both are so knowledgeable about everything marine and geologic and if not ( they make it up ) they were great fun. 3 hours non stop action we were really lucky with the weather the cliffs were amazing as was the sea and bird life along the way A perfect, thrilling not to be missed experience in any weather! The company was great in changing our booking due to our circumstances and were really brilliant to deal with
  • Awesome views!! I had the best experience ever, and I would definitely do it again as each day is different and they adapt the route to the weather conditions. The crew is super friendly and provide lots of good information while also being fun. We saw all sorts of marine animals: seals, 2 different species of dolphins, humpbacks (be aware of their season) and birds. The dolphins were playing around our boat for a long time (sorry, I was so astonished that forgot to take pictures). Not to mention the breathtaking scenery! Strongly recommend this cruise. It worth each dollar!
  • Really enjoyable cruise and what a awesome day! We saw a lots of 🐬, 🦭, gannets, albatrosses, petrels, cormorants... Those cliffs are so amazing! The captain and the girl were really professional and caring. We’ve learnt so much. Thanks guys! Really well done 👍 We’re looking forward to joining the cruise again soon😄
  • Amazing experience at this 3hr cruise along the Tasman coastline. The weather was cold and windy, adding to the thrill of the ride. The tour guides kept us engaged with their knowledge of the area and their jokes! The sightings were wonderful - little penguins 🐧, lots of seals 🦭, flying albatross, dolphins 🐬 up close and glimpses of thr humpback whale 🐳 . Loved it!
