We had a wonderful time on the cruise which takes you out to see the Seals in their natural habitat just off the Phillip Island. They are available in huge numbers. Its a rare opportunity to see the seals because you wont find them just anywhere. Besides the seals the whole cruise experience was great and children loved it. The... More

What a lovely way to spend a Summer's evening cruising inside Westernport Bay past French Island and to points of interest on the Mornington Peninsula - including the submarine wreck "Otama". The staff were all helpful and friendly from the moment you stepped on board. The drinks from the licensed bar were all of a good price and the light... More

The boat trip to seal rocks takes about 45 minutes from Cowes jetty you get to sit back relax and take in the scenery of Phillip Island. The captain and very friendly crew point out places of interest along the way. Seal rocks is amazing the largest seal colony in Australia,you get extremely close to the rocks which allows you...

The trip was what it promised to be. We cruised for 2 hours and saw the Seals. I am not a sea person - so i personally did not enjoy it much - but my wife and kids loved it. The seal rock where the boat waits around to see the seals is quite smelly (As one would expect) -... More

My family all live on Phillip Island and we've been visiting the island for about 30yrs but we'd never been out to Seal Rocks to visit the seal colony - mainly due to the cost factor. Finally, yesterday with perfect weather, no clouds, no wind and no swell we bit the bullet and booked tickets with Wildlife Coast Cruises for... More

The Captains Lunch Cruise from Rhyll was a holiday highlight - -3hours including lunch. The cruise took us from Rhyll to San Remo where others joined for the trip around Cape Woollamai. We saw one seal, unfortunately no other wildlife - but can't hold cruise owners responsible for that! The highlight of the cruise was the scenery. Staff very friendly... More

Went with three young children. We all thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. Staff were friendly and helpful. Seals were fabulous. Kids got to have a turn driving the boat and got a certificate for doing so. Thoroughly recommended.
