The Seafood Seduction tour is another fantastic addition to Tasmania’s top quality tourism attractions and will make a valuable contribution to the local economy by creating around 14 local jobs.
“The Seafood Seduction tour offers guests a unique opportunity to collect the finest Tasmanian seafood produce direct from our pristine waters, and watch it cooked on board Rob’s new custom-built vessels,” Ms Giddings said.
“This is exactly the type of experience we know tourists are looking for, particularly visitors from the rapidly growing Asian market.
“These people are looking for authentic experiences which make the most of Tasmania’s natural environment, stunning scenery and premium produce.
“Rob’s new venture ticks all of those boxes.”
Pennicott Wilderness Journeys received a $506,000 grant through the Australian Government’s Tasmanian Innovation and Investment Fund, to build the new custom-designed boats.
“This fund was set up to create jobs and help diversify our economy, particularly in regional areas, through projects that support innovation, new technologies and emerging industries.”
Minister for Tourism, Scott Bacon, said that a number of industry and media representatives have already been on board Rob’s new vessels for a special ‘sneak peek’ at the Seafood Seduction tour and have given the experience a resounding ‘thumbs up’.
“With this exceptional initial feedback, I’m confident that the Seafood Seduction experience will grow to become another iconic Tasmanian experience.
“Our state is continuing to develop world-class experiences that are generating widespread international recognition in publications such as Lonely Planet or respected websites like Trip Advisor.
“Tasmania is becoming a leader in so many areas and Rob’s Seafood Seduction tour is yet another example of the local ingenuity and the creative, confident investment in tourism that will help deliver Tasmania its competitive edge in the months and years ahead.”
Mr Pennicott’s Bruny Island Cruises won the awards for best attraction and ecotourism at the recent Tasmanian Tourism Awards, along with the Qantas Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism.
