Enjoy exceptional wildlife viewing at Phillip Island during a boat cruise to Seal Rocks, Australia’s largest fur seal colony, followed by a visit to the Nobbies blowhole or National Surfing Reserve at Cat Bay. Your cruise can be combined with admission to the Penguin Parade and other fun attractions like the Koala Conservation Centre and Churchill Island Heritage Farm. A variety of options allows you to customize your tour and plan a fun day for the whole family.
Make your way to Cowes Jetty to board your high-speed RIB (rigid-hulled inflatable boat) for a wildlife cruise to Seal Rocks. Throughout the tour, your onboard ranger-guide expertly locates seals, whales, dolphins, penguins and seabirds while providing informative commentary on the history and ecology of the area.
When you get close to Seal Rocks, watch the seals play and bark on the rocks, or pop their heads out of the water near your boat. The boat is equipped with underwater cameras that allow you a glimpse of the action beneath the waves, too.
Depending on which option you choose, you also see other famous spots around Phillip Island on your return journey to Cowes Jetty (see Itinerary below for options and details). Your return is timed so that you are back on shore for the Penguin Parade, if you choose that option. Warm layers are recommended as the temperature can vary throughout the day and drop in the evening.
