Experience spectacular scenery & sea birds, Seal Island, Wright Island & Waitpinga Cliffs. View Sea Lions, Fur Seals & Dolphins from the comfort of this modern, stable and extremely fast vessel.
For this extended tour, you'll depart from the Granite Island Causeway and cruise slowly between the mainland and the northern side of Granite Island, affording breathtaking views of both the Victor Harbor shoreline and the island. Once past the breakwater the vessel picks up its pace. Seal Rock is the first stop, where New Zealand Fur Seals and Australian Sea Lions bask in the sun between fishing forays and swimming out to the boat for a sticky-beak! Then on past the huge granite boulders of Wright Island and the Bluff, with Shark Alley in between where your captain talks about the whaling history of the area.
Many visitors to Victor Harbor never venture past Petrel Cove on the western side of The Bluff, but this is where passengers are in for a real treat! West Island is a Conservation Park, complete with a research hut used by the universities and park rangers. From the back of the island another colony of seals and sea lions can often be seen basking on the rocks and swimming in the shallows. Seabirds abound in this remote area and often pods of common and bottlenose dolphins can be spotted playing or feeding. The Big Duck heads further west past the darkly spectacular cliffs of Kings Beach and Waitpinga before turning around and heading back to Granite Island.
