Pricing based on group of 4 travellers

Discover the scenic coast of Phillip Island on an eco-cruise to Seal Rocks. Feel the atmosphere and learn the history of the island's south-western shoreline as your captain skilfully manoeuvres your boat around the rocks where thousands of fur seals come to play.

Begin your excursion at the northern point of Phillip Island, where friendly cruise rangers take you through a few safety demonstrations and an itinerary for the day. On your way to Seal Rocks, you can get a photo of waves breaking in the mouth of the famous Nobbies Cave and discover this well-known island's history, flora and fauna.

As you get closer to Seal Rocks, feel the sensation of going over the long swells that wash in from Bass Strait. Watch thousands of fur seals frolic on the nearby rocks, while a few friendly ones swim up to greet you. Learn about the creatures as your cruise ranger and captain explain their everyday lifestyle and behaviour.

After spending some quality time with the seals, begin your relaxed journey back to shore. Along the way, check out spots on the scenic southern coastline pointed out by your captain and look out for dolphins or penguins nearby. Enjoy complimentary afternoon tea or coffee with some delightful biscuits and cakes aboard the boat, or purchase a drink or two at the vessel's licensed bar.

A must watch on visiting Philip Island. It’s a good cruise experience with wonderful views and seal watching.

We were kept waiting on the Jetty for ages then there was no hot water for a Cuppa and the included snacks were a small piece of cake. A lot of the seats are broken and the crew seemed to just stand around doing nothing. The actual view of the Seals was great and commentary also good. Would not recomend as too many negatives.
