Accommodation at Wilsons Promontory
Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, known for their Bruny Island Tasmania cruises, commence cruising from Wilsons Promontory National Park on 23 Sept 2019. They have designed and custom built amphibious boats specifically for these Wilsons Prom Cruises.

This is an eco tour, designed to have minimal environmental impact and maximum adventure (and safety). Rather than build a jetty on beautiful Norman Beach, the custom built boats have retractable wheels that enable them to drive straight from the sand into the water from Norman Bay at Tidal River, in Wilsons Prom.

Ensure to bring your camera (there will be numerous Instagram worthy moments!!). While on board you can expect to see dolphins, seals, birdlife and migrating whales (whale season is September to December and May to July). You will get up close to Skull Rock and an Australian Fur Seal colony during your 2.5 hour boat tour. This is a unique experience not to be missed!

The cruises run at 11am all year round (with additional cruises at 2pm during busy periods). Each boat only holds about 25 people, so get in quick if you’d like to be on board so you don’t miss out!

Here at Promhills Cabins, we are an authorised ticket seller and we can book you onto these cruises. You can add your Wilsons Prom Cruise to your accommodation booking when you book direct via our website, or discuss it with us via live chat, email or phone after you've booked your cabin, or when you get here (but the best way to secure your seat is to book in advance when you book your accommodation, especially during peak times). Just tick the box to add a cruise to your cabin booking and enter in the comments the date/time you prefer and we will book on your behalf with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys who will confirm your ticket(s) via email.

I took the below video when we were invited to attend the Launch Party expedition. To see the biggest laugh of our day, pay attention at the 45 second mark. We were told that this was a freak occurrence, I guess we were just lucky to have experienced impeccable timing. There’s no guarantee you’ll be that lucky, BUT you will see seals and birds and dolphins (and possibly whales). When we boarded, we were told the front seats were the "adventure seats", so of course we sat there, however, if you don't want to risk a possible splash, sit towards the rear of the boat.
