    What to Expect

    Seal Rocks is situated 2kms off the rugged south-west coast of Phillip Island. The boat drifts within meters of the seals, enabling you to witness them in their natural environment first hand. It is impossible not to be captivated by these naturally playful and inquisitive animals, as they regularly approach the boat for a closer look at you!

    Along the way, you’ll be enthralled by the beautiful coastline and learn all about the history of Phillip Island’s western shoreline.

    We caught the ferry from Crib Point & back again. The afternoon ferry departed Cowes @ 3:45 & the seal ferry returned to Cowes @ 4:00. This meant we had to sit around for 2 hours either end of our trip. Such poor organisation. We did this trip nearly 2 years ago & were thrilled

    Despite a slightly choppy sea, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Nice to have such caring staff on the boat for those not used to the sea conditions. It was fine on the way back! Wouldn't have missed it tho'!
