Experience the thrill of a high speed boat ride along Phillip Island’s rugged and spectacular coastline with Wild Oceans EcoBoat Tour and enjoy an up-close encounter with one of Australia’s largest colonies of fur seals.
The Wild Oceans EcoBoat is a world-class rigid hulled inflatable boat (RIB) with seating for up to 47 people. Powered by four whisper-quiet outboard engines, the EcoBoat skims across the top of the water on its way to Seal Rocks, home to about one quarter of Australia’s largest fur seal population.
On any given day, you can expect to see up to about 8,000 seals on the two rocky islands that make up Seal Rocks. Watch the antics of the playful seals as they surround the boat, ducking their heads in and out of the water.
Your experienced captain puts the EcoBoat through its paces on your way back to Cowes with a bit of wave-running, and perhaps even a 'donut' or two.
The EcoBoat operates a year-round one hour Express Tour every day, as well as a 1.5 hour Adventure Tour from September to April. Tours depart from the Cowes jetty.
