Our Scenic Day and Sunset Tours operate all year, but are best enjoyed Spring to Autumn. Enjoy a calm 1.5 to 2 hour cruise on the naturally picturesque Port Phillip Bay in classic Queenscliff. These Tours are available for groups only, minimum 10 people.
Scenic Cruise Information
Your cruise begins at the newly developed Queenscliff Harbour where you are met by your Host and Skipper who will share with you an abundance of local knowledge. We make our way to Port Phillips Heads Marine National Park and Popes Eye to visit a unique site where the Australasian Gannet breed and rear their young. This is one of few man made stuctures in the world where Gannets breed. They can be viewed here all year round. Black Swans, Cormorants, Spoonbills, Egrets and Ruddy Turnstones also make Pope Eye their home.
Then it’s on to the structure which is affectionately know to locals as Chinaman’s Hat. Here you will be up close and personal with Australian Fur Seals…hold your nose, they are cute but they smell briefly as you pass by!
The seals use this gazebo in our Bay as a rest spot after a hard day hunting for fish. It’s a bachelor pad, all males here. For the current season they have no female companions, therefore they have nothing to do but laze around, sun bake, take a dip and scuffle between themselves to hone their fighting skills for the up coming breeding season where they will have to impress that special little lady seal. The small ones are really cute and the big guys can grow up to 300kg’s! This is a must stop for anyone who loves to watch animals in their natural habitat. The Australian Fur Seal can be viewed here all year round.
Interested in Luxury Cruise Liners?
Then you are in luck, this is the boat to book.
Many cruises are scheduled around the dates and times that these luxurious liners are either travelling in or out of Port Phillip Heads. On cruise dates that do not co-inside with Cruise Liner viewing,we journey over to Sorrento and along the majestic cliffs to Portsea and Quarantine Bay before returning home.
You may even spot a pod of famous Port Phillip Bay Bottlenose Dophins….

You are more than welcome to bring a hamper with Food and Drinks to enjoy.
Also pack something warm for the evening breeze.
