Experience the thrill of a high speed 90 minute boat ride along Phillip Island's rugged and spectacular coastline to enjoy an up close encounter with one of Australia's largest colonies of fur seals. As the EcoBoat slips in to a protected inlet between the two rocky plateaus, visitors will enjoy some fantastic, up close viewing of the rock’s inhabitants. Naturally curious and playful, the seals come to greet the boat and check out its occupants, all the while putting on an amazing and amusing show as they duck their heads in and out of the water and play a game of leap-frog with each other.
See the Nobbies blowhole, shaped by centuries of pounding wave action, and pass the “pirate’s cave” at the base of the Nobbies rock formation, visible only from the water. There’s enough time for a quick stop at the Cat Bay National Surfing Reserve, famous for its longboard break, before your experienced captain puts the EcoBoat through its paces with a bit of wave-running. Your tour concludes as you pull in at the jetty in plenty of time to make it to the sunset viewing at the Penguin Parade.
