Fabulous cruise around Wilson's Promontory. We visited the islands off the coast and saw an amazing variety of wildlife including seals just raising their pups and splashing around in their natural environment. Gannets, terns, eagles, penguins; secluded beaches far from the reach of other tourists, one of which we visited and went for a walk up to the hilltop view,... More

We went on the sunset cruise last night. Absolutely loved it. The three staff were great. A mix of humour and great knowledge made for a great atmosphere. Nice mix of hot and cold nibbles. A good bar to get a drink from. And of course just loved being on the boat and enjoying the experience. Thanks

Had a great time, took our granddaughter on her first boat ride. She was so excited and the crew were fantastic with her. Each crew member took time out for a chat when serving nibbles about the wildlife that we would see on the tour and supplied books and coloring when the weather turned. Food was great and the commentary... More

Introduction: Sadly this is where a few points are lost, the safety introduction was lacking in a few areas, missing crucial features which could potentially save a life. Things like "man overboard" instructions are a must. Cruise: Was rough towards seal rock, settled down for a bit when we got there, the seals were amazing to see and the experience... More

Hi Wally4000, Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you had a great experience watching the seals at Seal Rocks. Due to the reefs, swells and currents around the entrance to Westernport we often need to go through some messy sea conditions to get there. We are very surprised to hear that MOB briefing was not carried... More

I took my three grandsons on a cruise from Sanremo to Cape Woolami as the seas were too rough for a trip to Seal Rock. First ever boat trip for the boys and the staff could not have been more caring and attentive. We were able to visit the Captains cabin and all the boys had a turn at stealing... More

We have been on this cruise twice now. The first time one of my kids vomited and another came close to vomiting. The staff were fantastic. So even though my son felt unwell for a fair bit of the trip he still wanted to go again! This second time the kids were fine and we had a fantastic time. The... More

This was a relaxing tour and a perfect summer activity. We were just a few metres away from the seals and their pups. The captain made sure that we had enough time to watch the seals. Two hours well spent on this Phillip Island tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip out to seal rocks! The boat gets close enough to allow you to capture some great pictures of these beautiful mammals. The crew were very informative too. One of the highlights of our East coast road trip!

We have taken this type of wildlife cruise before in other locales. We thought this seal watching cruise was truly excellent. They took us much closer to the seal rocks than I would have imagined. Their staff was excellent and knowledgeable. I would recommend this cruise to anyone without hesitation!
