Phillip Island Dolphin & Whale Cruise
Set sail on a winter dolphin & whale adventure venturing past the sheer cliffs of Cape Woolamai and along Phillip Island’s attractive southern coastline.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Set sail on a winter dolphin & whale adventure venturing past the sheer cliffs of Cape Woolamai and along Phillip Island’s attractive southern coastline. This seasonal wildlife cruise operates from June to early August, during the whale migration season.
Search for Humpback and Southern Right Whales on their annual migration route. They make their way from the chilly waters of Antarctica to the warm, tropical ocean off the coast of Queensland for calving. In addition to whales, be on the lookout for dolphin pods feeding and playing, with curious seals and a variety of birdlife including the Wandering Albatross regularly sighted in the area. Learn more about these incredible creatures with the informative commentary.
On the return journey, warm up with a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of tasty cake. If you prefer something a little stronger, there is a licensed bar onboard where you can purchase additional drinks.
Do remember, that whale and dolphin sightings are not guaranteed, as they are in a natural environment, however, there is about an 80% success rate.
