Wild Oceans EcoBoat Tour

Experience the thrill of a high speed boat ride along Phillip Island's rugged and spectacular coastline with a Wild Oceans EcoBoat Tour, and enjoy an up-close encounter with one of Australia's largest fur seal colonies.

The 90 minute Adventure Tour includes Seal Rocks, the Nobbies, Summerland Peninsula cliffs and the Nobbies blowhole, plus Cat Bay on the return journey.

The 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 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.

Operates seasonally. Please note minimum age of four years and minimum height of 100 centimetres for all participants.

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.

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.
