About
Get views of Wineglass Bay and Tasmania's Freycinet Peninsula from the deck of a boat on this half-day cruise. Sit back, relax, and watch for humpback whales, dolphins, and sea eagles—sights you may not catch on a traditional land-based tour. Dig into an included Ploughman's lunch (if option selected) while cruising past white-sand beaches, snapping photos of the rugged sea cliffs, and learning about the region through live commentary.

Highlights
Get ideal views of Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula from the deck of a catamaran
Lunch of locally sourced produce and other products (if option selected)
Cash bar to taste local cool-climate wine
In-depth commentary about the area through live onboard commentary
What to expect
Step aboard a catamaran and find a comfortable spot on board to take in the scenery of Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula. The catamaran features both indoor and outdoor seating and floor-to-ceiling windows, so there's not a bad seat in the house. And, the cruise can proceed no matter the weather. Views of both of these natural areas are best enjoyed from on the water, not to mention the possibility of getting up close with local whales, dolphins, and sea birds. The boat drops anchor amid the natural scenery and, if you've selected the option at checkout, serves a Ploughman's lunch, consisting of local produce, such as salmon, cheese, and chocolate. Step up to the cash bar for beverages and cool-climate wines. As you travel, listen to live commentary about the local environment, flora, and fauna, learning much more about Wineglass Bay than you would by simply exploring on your own.

Wineglass Bay Cruise from Coles Bay
Apr 2021
This was a very windy departure, but the boat size made that fairly comfortable, and once we crossed to the ocean side, it all changed into a beautiful sunshine journey.

A few stops along the way to take in the coastline and beaches, a very enjoyable cruise

Great day on the bay

Great day with informative, friendly staff. We were on the boat during the off peak season so had plenty of room to sit where wanted to see everything and could relax. Saw fur seals and some amazing scenery. Perfect weather

Just the best day, and pickup from Freycinet Lodge jetty !
Jul 2021
Staying at the lodge, booked at the lodge and picked up at the lodge jetty. How easy ! . We had a great day, excellent weather and great sightseeing. We we're looked after so well by Ewen on the upper deck (my wife didn't want to get off) who made sure we had plenty to eat and drink all day and provided lots of valuable commentary. We booked the upper deck (more expensive but definitely worth it). Because of a small number upstairs we could sit out the back in the sunshine for a great lunch anchored in WG Bay. After having a crap Covid year in Melbourne this day was just what we needed. Well done captain and crew, we will be back again !

Excellent cruise to Wineglass Bay
This is a great cruise experience, spectacular granite cliffscape along the eastern side of the Freycinet Peninsula south of Wineglass Bay, excellent crew, and a great ploughmans lunch. Well done Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. Thanks to Erin and Euan, and skipper Matt. Highly recommended, but take warm clothes if you go in Tasmania’s winter, it was about 12 degrees today. If you dress warmly you can outside for most of the trip.

Great tour whilst in stunning Freycinet
We had a great day out with Wineglass bay tours. Very friendly and informative staff who were attentive and knowledgeable - they even took the time to fish someone’s hat out of the ocean! We were lucky the wind gods allowed us to get into Wineglass bay, which is absolutely stunning. Great tour to do while in Freycinet. It can get choppy when you’re out in the Tasman, so be prepared.

Highlight of our holiday
Jun 2021
If you only did one thing in Tassie l suggest it should be the Coles Bay Lunch Cruise on the upper deck. Eat drink and cruise for 5 hours with ‘Captain’ Matt at the wheel and ‘First Officer’ Ewen in charge of food and drinks distribution. Morning tea delights, amazing lunch ( didn't need dinner ) and open bar. My wife is fussy with her oysters, drooled over the lunch oysters. Ewen kept coming back.
We wandered in and out of the lounge at our leisure, stood up front and chatted with Matt in between his microphone announcements to our lounge and the other deck below re the history of the many visual highlights and his expertise in locating the migrating Humpback Whales .
Ewen should be a stand-up comedian, brilliant lounge manager. His very funny instructions on how to put the safety jacket on set the tone for the day. As an experienced diver he also has great insights into the marine ecology of the area.
Also tap into Matt's years of diving experiences and the range of sharks he has 'met'.
Whale searching and seeing was a hoot, seals lazing on the rocks and penguins popping up in the water. Sensational scenery.

Wonderful experience
May 2021
My other half and I thoroughly enjoyed this half day cruise and the service was of a very high standard. We received a phone call the day prior to advise that the weather conditions may not be favorable for Coles bay, so an alternative route would take us instead to an island inhabited by hundreds of seals and bird colonies. To experience such a large number of animals and birdlife in their natural environment was very special and the commentary provided of this region was first class. Tip: rug up warm, as it was so cold.

Fantastic Effort. Best tourist experience ever
Some tours are oversold. This one was absolutely fantastic. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the service was first rate. The whole tour was something I would highly recommend.
