Ocean Wildlife and Whale Watching Cruise

per person

Big Duck Boat

Explore untouched areas of coastline, see beautiful seabirds, dolphins, seals and whales on this spectacular wildlife cruise.

Make your way along the causeway from Victor Harbour towards Granite Island where you will embark on this truly amazing wildlife cruise. You will pass Granite Island and enjoy the beautiful views back across to Victor Harbour before picking up the pace to get to Seal Island where as the name suggests we watch New Zealand Fur Seals and Australian Sea Lions bask in the sun. If you're lucky they might swim out to the boat for a sticky-beak!

Pass the huge granite boulders of Wright Island and the Bluff, with Shark Alley in between where you will learn about the whaling history of the area.

Be one of the few visitors to Victor Harbor to venture past Petrel Cove on the western side of the Bluff into West Island  Conservation Park. This incredible place is a wildlife mecca, complete with a research hut used by universities and National Parks. Onwards from here you will likely see another colony of seals and sea lions basking on the rocks and swimming in the shallows. Seabirds abound in this remote area and often pods of dolphins can be spotted playing or feeding.

Your Ocean Wildlife Cruise departs from the causeway at Victor Harbour.  Contact us for the best way to get here from Port Elliot.
