Tour operated by:

Wildlife Coast Cruises

Experience this spectacular two hour cruise to witness Australia's largest wild fur seal colony, situated on Seal Rocks which lies two kilometres off the rugged south west coast of Phillip Island.

The boat drifts within metres of thousands of seals, enabling you to witness their natural environment first hand. It is impossible not to be captivated by these naturally playful and inquisitive animals who regularly approach the boat for a closer look at you.

Along the way, you will be captivated by the beautiful coastline and learn the history of Phillip Island's western shoreline with commentary by your captain and crew. Onboard children's activities, plus regular sightings of marine life such as dolphins and birds, will keep everyone interested during the trip.

On the return voyage, relax on one of three decks and enjoy complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits and cake, served by your friendly crew. Soft drinks, alcohol and light snacks are also available for purchase throughout the cruise.
