Wildlife Coast Cruises

Phillip Island

The waters surrounding Phillip Island teem with wildlife. Take an unforgettable cruise around Phillip Island discovering wildlife such as: seals, dolphins, whales and a range of birdlife. The coastline is spectacular!

For over 20 years, Wildlife Coast Cruises has been conducting unforgettable cruises around Phillip Island and on to Seal Rocks, French Island, Westernport Bay and Wilson’s Promontory National Park.

Take a cruise to Seal Rocks to see Australia’s largest wild fur seal colony, just two kilometres from Phillip Island.
