Kellie Rauf 2 months ago 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.

We had a very enjoyable time on this cruise. It was amazing seeing all the seals up close. We would definitely do it again. Thank you.

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
Ray 2 years ago

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.
