Must for animal lovers

Excellent experience the team were very professional and they obviously love their job. If we lived closed we would go more often such a wonderful natural site. We will be back in the future 😃
Very disappointing
, Dec 2020
We were not happy with the price as was not offered discounts for group of 5 or more and pensioner discounts. We spoke to the people at Philip Island and they said it should have been stated on your website. If we had these discounts it would have saved our group which was mai ly pensioners at least 96.00. And for that price we paid morning tea was a bit disappointing.

The cruise was cancelled because of the weather, we did not go there. And also I have not found how to get full refund.

Fabulous 2 hour cruise to see the seals. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the local environment. This was the highlight of the trip to Phillip Island for my 3 grandkids aged 14, 10 and 7. We will do the whale cruise with this company come winter.
