Wilsons Promontory Cruises

Australia's Best New Tourism Business 2021

Discover the beautiful granite coastline and unique wilderness of the Wilsons Promontory National Park on our 2½ hour Wilsons Promontory Cruise.

Wilsons Promontory Cruises is the latest addition to the award winning Pennicott Wilderness Journeys yellow boat ecotours.  Travel in world's first, custom built amphibious boats, designed for cruising waters in comfort and safety.

Witness iconic South Point, the southernmost tip of mainland Australia and cruise into the waters of Bass Strait and Victoria's first marine national park.

Discover a rugged and raw coast like no other as we explore The Glennies, Anderson Islets and Anser Island. Marvel at the prehistoric boulders of Mount Oberon situated behind the white quartz sands of Norman Beach before uncovering the iconic granite monolith that is Skull Rock. Sculpted by waves and surrounded by crystal blue waters, Skull Rock's eerie facade becomes even more mysterious as more and more skull shapes reveal themselves the closer you get.
