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 😊

A few weeks ago my family and I went to Melbourne for a holiday. While there we dedicated one of our days to visiting the famous Phillip island. We had booked a cruise which got canceled so we decided to do this one instead. We were lucky and were soon on the boat leaving land to sail. My two sons... More

We went on the cruise with our 2 children & 5 grandchildren, weather was terrible, however we enjoyed the cruise, friendly and informed staff, who made us feel very special, children were thrilled and hysterical after seeing the dolphins in their natural habitat. Would highly recommend this cruise. 1 hr was sufficient especially with young children.

We went on the cruise to see the seals and it was definitely worth it. The captain and the rest of staff on the boat, were a joy to be around " especially Mel" . I believe any cruise this company does would be worth the money and experience. We highly recommended 😊😊😊
