Visit Australia's most famous Fur Seal colony with a picturesque 2-hour cruise to Phillip Island's ruggedly beautiful south-west coast! These playful and inquisitive animals are a must-see for wildlife lovers as their nature leads them to approach the boat and makes for some outstanding photo opportunities.

Climb aboard the comfortable vessel then simply sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery as you depart from Cowes Jetty around the island's wildlife-rich coastline, keeping an eye out for dolphins, a huge number of sea birds, and much more.

Enjoy a complimentary morning or afternoon tea and, upon arrival, you'll get to witness an average of five thousand seals from a very close distance - the number and activity of which will no doubt surprise, impress and enchant you. If you've got even a passing interest in wildlife, don't hesitate to book this Phillip Island seal cruise online today for a memorable and reasonably priced adventure!

An awesome experience. We cannot fault the whole process.

We had an awesome experience! The captain, crew and the staff were very helpful and made it an experience to remember. The whole process was easy and we had no issues whatsoever. Will definitely book again in the near future. It's great to support a locally owned business.

Fantastic! We enjoyed it very fun weather was nice too. Very relaxing. The staff were friendly and nice. We really love it. Cake that they gave was so yummy! Even the picture that we purchase was a nice shot. It's a great experience to see a real seal and have a cruise. My son loves the boat cruise he loves the waves.

I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise

I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. The staff were very friendly & helpful as well as looking after my mum when she suffered from sea sickness & checking on all passengers several times throughout the cruise to ensure nobody was feeling unwell. They were also very knowledgable regarding the surroundings & the history of the area & its inhabitants. I would do this cruise again. I loved it.

I went on this cruise with my partner and 3 year old

I went on this cruise with my partner and 3 year old. All of the staff on the boat were lovely and afternoon tea (cake, fruit, biscuits, tea & coffee) was provided. The trip over to seal rocks was quite rough so if you suffer from sea sickness (like me) make sure you take some preventatives. The gorgeous seals come right up to the boat and there are thousands of them. A great cruise if the motion sickness doesn't kick in.

We really enjoyed the seal cruise

We really enjoyed the seal cruise. It was my first time and I brought my parents along who came from overseas. We were able to see thousands of wild seals and up to a very close distance. Again we really enjoyed it. One complaint would be the safety features of the cruise vessel. The height of the vessel's handrails is not high enough. I am 165 cm and the handrails are about by my waist. A person could fall off the vessel when there are big waves or rough seas. Otherwise no other complaints. Very good and friendly staff on board. They are approachable and happy to take questions. Thank you. Will definitely visit again.

Come and visit Seal Rocks - Australia’s largest Seal Colony! See thousands of fur seals in their natural habitat!.

Be sure to rug up in warm clothes if visiting Phillip Island in winter; also the waters can be quite choppy so take a seasickness pill if you're prone to motion sickness beforehand.
