Your day includes guided bus tour, ferry crossing, Wilderness Cruise, morning tea, lunch and sightseeing. Cruise beneath towering cliffs and up close to 'Breathing Rock' blowhole. Enter deep sea caves, pass through the narrow gap between the coast and 'The Monument' and search for abundant wildlife.
Cruise alongside some of Australia’s highest sea cliffs and drift up close to listen to the awesome Breathing Rock. Explore deep sea caves and pass through the narrow gap between the coast and The Monument, a tall, slender sea-stack. Feel the power of nature at the point where the Tasman Sea meets the might of the Southern Ocean. Look out for playful pods of common and bottlenose dolphins, and encounter playful Australian fur seals at Friar Rocks. If travelling during whale migration season (May-July and September-December), you may be lucky enough to observe the sheer grace of Humpback or Southern Right Whales.
