Experience a true eco-cruise along the scenic coast of Phillip Island to Seal Rocks. Feel the atmosphere as the skillful captain manoeuvres the cruise amongst the rocks where thousands of fur seals play! You are in for a truly amazing wildlife and educational eco-experience!
From the time you drive over the bridge to Phillip Island, you are entering into a wildlife zone as the island is home to an abundance of natural wildlife like koalas, penguins and seals.
Your crew will meet you at the northern point of Phillip Island, where you will be boarding one of their modern cruisers. As you depart the jetty, you are welcomed onboard, introduced to the cruise rangers who take you through a few safety demonstrations and tell you a little about the itinerary of the days cruise.
On the way out to Seal Rocks, you will learn about the history, flora and fauna of the Island as special points of interest are past. Then as you get closer to Seal Rocks, you will start to feel the sensation of going over the long swells that come in from Bass Strait. On the most south-westerley point of Phillip Island, you will stop for a look at the great Nobbies Cave for a photo opportunity, then head out across the waters to Seal Rocks where you are drifting amongst thousands of seals.
Your captain and crew will interpret what the seals are doing, with the different antics they get up to as they bask on the nearby rocks. You will be within just a few metres of the seals all whilst in the comfort and safety of your boat. After spending 20 to 30 minutes with the seals, the cruiser will commence a return trip, whilst the captain points out the scenic southern coastline and will encourage you to watch out for the resident dolphins or penguins as you cruise back.
On the return trip, you can enjoy complimentary afternoon tea including tea/coffee, biscuits and cake, or purchase drink or two from the licensed bar.
The price quoted is for one adult. We can take a maximum of 70 passengers on the cruise and operate with a maximum of 25 people to each cruise ranger to ensure a more personalised service.
This cruise is weather dependent but there is an alternative cruise which takes you to more sheltered parts of the Island. This will give you a 90% chance of seeing seals or dolphins and you will see an abundance of seabirds and spectacular scenery.
Please wear something warm in the cooler weather and a hat and sunscreen is recommended on sunny days.
This experience depart from Cowes, Phillip Island - approximately 1.5 hours drive south-east of Melbourne.
