Known for its extensive coastline, Phillip Island is a popular holiday spot in Victoria.
Philip Island offers an array of amazing activities and entertainment options for visitors to the island. For those looking an outdoor adventure, take a trip on any of the Phillip Island Cruises to see the island’s fairy penguins, furry seals and its scenic coastal beauty.
Phillip Island Wildlife, Twilight, Coast & Whale Watching Cruises
One of the most popular tours is the seal watching cruise where you will see thousands of Australian fur seals in their natural habitat. Depart on a catamaran for Seal Rocks on your two-hour cruise and keep an eye out for dolphins, whales, penguins and other wildlife along the way. You will see Australia’s largest colonies of fur seals and will be provided with an informative commentary from your experienced guide about the wildlife on and history of Phillip Island. Most tours also offer complimentary afternoon tea with tea and coffee.
After a full day of action on Phillip Island, why not take a twilight cruise which leaves at sunset. Get the best view of Phillip Island from the water as you take in sights along Western Port Bay near the Mornington Peninsula. View landmarks including French Island and Stony Point as you take in the beautiful scenery with unobstructed views from your boat. On these twilight cruises, snacks are often available as well as a bar when you can have a glass of wine as you watch the sun go down.
If whale watching is on your agenda, then take a Phillip Island whale watching cruise. These cruises run a little longer at 4 hours as you will need to travel a little further out to sea. On this tour, you will see Phillip Island’s beautiful coastal scenery and thousands of playful fur seals at Seal Rocks. If you are lucky you will also spot some dolphins, as well as penguins and albatross. When you reach the best viewing spot, keep an eye out for the beautiful humpback whales as they migrate along the coast of Victoria.
