We took our 2 young children on this cruise and we found the staff very friendly and helpful. It was informative about the area and the seals and comfortable seating inside the boat. Although a bit choppy at times in the boat, if you don't get too seasick, it's great!

This was a gift and we think we know Phillip Island. This trip is unexpectedly beautiful, value for money and simple. You get some interesting history and enjoy some sights and wait for the beautiful sunset. You are offered food as you go and there's plenty of time to relax, sit, stand, take photos etc. A great group idea.

Great twilight cruise, and as there were only 7 of us on board, we had the complete attention of the crew. They waited on us and talked to us about what we were seeing, as well as personal chitchat. There was a commentary by the captain, which was very informative. The weather was really good, and the sunset over the... More

When my wife told me she'd booked us (her, our eight year old daughter, and me) on a two hour cruise to see the seals off Philip Island, I was a bit sceptical. I also thought that it was a bit pricey. Sceptical because we go to the zoo a lot, watch everything that David Attenborough has ever made, and... More

This tour business is very well and could see safety is very important to these guys. The boat is very clean and comfortable. The seals at seal rock were well worth seeing. We did this boat trip from our cruise ship

Loved seeing the seals so up-close!! Stayed at Seal Rocks just the right amount of time, plenty of time to take photos and videos. The young man on the boat was very good, had lots of information for us. Sorry just can't remember his name 😊
