      It was raining which cannot be controlled by the staff. We still enjoyed the cruise and commentary. The staff were very friendly and dealt well with other customers who did not want to listen to the staff members safety advise.

      Had a whale of a time
      Last cruise of the season. Fabulous afternoon. 9 whales sighted, 2 of them breaching. Seals were fascinating & fun to watch as well. The crew were all great. Would recommend to all.

      Experienced and hospitable crew, great day out!
      Seamless operation by the crew and captain. Felt really safe and enjoyed the day aboard their boat. Saw a range of sea life including whales and enjoyed viewing the coastline from the water.

      A whale 🐳 of a day
      Another fantastic whale cruise with the WCC team at the beautiful Wilson’s Promontory……super weather conditions all day helped us thoroughly enjoy the day. The Captain and crew got us onto whales for nearly the entire cruise. So much so, we stayed out later than scheduled (with everyone’s agreement) as a single juvenile insisted in circling the boat for over 30 mins to play. We had breaches, tail slapping, muggings and spy hopping…the full Monty. Would totally recommend the cruise and a huge thank you to the crew.

      Winter Whale watching
      Our Phillip Island Winter Whale watching tour was a great success. We saw two separate groups of humpback whales, numerous dolphins swimming and jumping right beside the boat, and dozens of seal pups playing in the water at Seal Rocks. The water was quite rough at times but we are OK sailors and did not become unwell. The staff are very attentive and knowledgeable, and they served up some delicious treats for us. The design of the boat makes it quite easy for everyone to get a good view, from in or outside

      Must do on Philip Island!
      We went with our kids and they both loved it. Captain was very skillful and brought us very close to the seal rock where we saw hundreds of seals in their natural habitat doing what they were best at: surfing, sunbathing, socializing and diving. The staff on the boat was friendly and knowledgeable about the animals. We would definitely do it again in the future. Even if you are not a huge fan of the seals, the ride out from Cowes to the seal rock is worth the price itself!

      Fantastic opportunity to view wild seals
      Fantastic two hour cruise that also goes past the Nobbies and multiple beaches along Phillip Island. We spent quite a bit of time at Seal Rock, which was fabulous as we got to watch hundreds of seals jumping and playing in the water; some even came up to the boat for a sniff. Only downside: I was a bit annoyed to be offered a professional 'boarding photo', only to be told later that it would cost an extra $15 to take home. Given that the cruise is already over $80, I would have thought something like that would be included; maybe inform guests before taking the photo that there is a charge?

    This was our 4th trip with Wildlife Coast Cruises, and we will be back again. Thanks to Mike the Captain for his incredible knowledge, insight and wit. The crew were friendly and attentive, and made the day special. Even though the whales were a bit elusive (we did see a beautiful young spotted whale close up late in the day, and saw whales blowing a long way off)... the day was amazing and the scenery totally spectacular. We visited islands we had not seen on previous trips. Special diets were well catered for too. Just let them know when you book. Thoroughly recommended.

    Our adventure started at San Remo where we watched the 12.00pm feeding of the Pelicans. A great close up look of a stunning bird. We then boarded our boat which was staffed by friendly helpful staff and headed around Phillip Island. Lots of room and choice of seats on the boat so we could change viewing spot without worrying about losing our position. We saw half a dozen Humpback Whales. The commentary was interesting and refreshing as she seemed as excited by the sight as we were. I don't remember her name but she had a very easy to listen to voice. The Captain also added bits which made for an informative report. We also saw a multitude of seals on Seal Rocks and enjoyed watching the seals frolicking in the water. All the water turbulence made the water turn various shades of blue and acqua. A truly stunning sight was a couple of Shy Albatrosses gliding to the side of our boat. They were so graceful and elegant. On our way back we saw a group of dolphins. Also worth mentioning is the beautiful coastline which we had not seen before from the water, Cape Woolamai with their iconic red coloured rocks. Oh yes and then the warm muffin which was well timed to warm us up just as we we were beginning to feel the cold. All up a great trip which makes you appreciative our beautiful part of the world. And special mention of the staff who were casual, friendly and make one proud to be Australia.

    I love a day at sea and this one didn't disappoint. We saw two hump backed whales and circled them for about an hour to watch them breaching many times. Because it was fairly calm the boat was able to get close to the rocks and it was great to see the dramatic colours of the cliffs and the many deep caves. It made up for not seeing dolphins this trip. I am lucky not to get sea sick but many were so I advise to take medication if this is a possibility.

    Friendly crew really went out of their way & stopped longer than the cruise was meant to go for so we could see the whales for a longer time. The boat gets up really close to seal rocks & we saw lots of dolphins too. It was fairly windy out on the boat but nice & sunny.

The Seals are always so cute and normally on the Dolphin and whale cruise we don't visit the seal colony, so you're very lucky. We hope to see you on board again.
