Winter Whale Watching and Wildlife Eco Boat Tour

Esplanade, Sorrento Pier, Sorrento, Victoria, 3943

Explore the exceptional southern end of Port Phillip Bay and out into Bass Strait on this extended two and a half hour whale watching and wildlife eco boat cruise for just twelve guests.

On the open rigid inflatable boat Apollo, you will search along the spectacular Mornington Peninsula coastline for the opportunity to see migrating whales as they journey into our beautiful region.

During the winter months each year there has been increasing sightings of Humpback Whales, Southern Right Whales and Orca. It’s a very special experience because historically whaling and sealing was one of the first industries in the region. Now protected, you have the opportunity to search for these grand marine animals as they safely visit the local waters. Winter is cold but this is your chance to experience something entirely unique.

The two and half hour Winter Whale Watching and Wildlife Eco Boat Tour certainly gives you a personalised all-round view into the beauty and richness of the Mornington Peninsula aboard our open air RIB boat.
