Tasman Peninsular Boat Ride was. These two 70+ year olds really enjoyed it - and no one got ‘seasick’. The youngish cruise captain was wonderful and had a very interesting and easy listening conversational style of presentation. Lunch at Port Arthur was just delicious… complete with soup, ham and salad rolls and fruit… plus water and tea or coffee. Entry fee was included and wrong part in a guided tour with an excellent guide. We also had a very experienced and excellent coach driver … who provided a great commentary.

An exceptional day tour with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, we loved every second! We had a great bus driver, thanks Phil for taking such good care of us. The absolute highlight was the eco cruise with Dammo & Andrew, it was breathtakingly beautiful & it was so obvious how much our guides loved their jobs & the Tasman Peninsula. We enjoyed Port Arthur, but it was a snapshot of the historic site & we rushed around after eating lunch to cram as much of it in as possible. Thanks to everyone involved for a wonderful day!!
