The Gippsland Lakes are abundant in wildlife, sea life and birdlife. The lakes have their own colonies of seals and the rare species of Burrunan Dolphin. Sightings are not always possible, but they do their best to find where they're hanging out.

Cruising past many of the islands in the Gippsland Lakes gives you a close-up view of kangaroos and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Your skipper will give a full commentary on the history and nature of the Gippsland Lakes.

Peels Cruises is a local family-owned business operating for four generations. It's the longest-serving cruise company on the Gippsland Lakes.

Their first cruise boats started in 1920 in Lakes Entrance, after Harold Peel returned home from World War 1.
