Wilsons Prom Whale Cruise

    What to Expect
    Meet at Port Welshpool where your captain and crew will welcome you aboard the comfortable 62-foot (19-meter) motorized catamaran. Indoor and outdoor decks with ample seating provide excellent views as your boat sails over to Wilsons Promontory National Park, affectionately known as The Prom.

    Situated on the southernmost point of mainland Australia, Wilsons Promontory encompasses a vast nature reserve laced with swimming and surfing beaches along Bass Strait. The park harbors abundant native wildlife including kangaroos, wombats, echidnas, emus and colorful birds like rosellas and parrots, while dolphins, seals and whales are often spotted offshore. On this cruise you will join the search for the majestic humpback whales on their southerly migration. 

    Throughout the day, your captain shares informative and entertaining commentary. As you approach Wilsons Promontory, its historic 1859 lighthouse comes into view, perched on the southernmost point of Australia's mainland. Enjoy close views of the lighthouse, which by land can only be reached on foot by walking 11 miles (18 km).

    Enjoy freshly made lunch on board in a remote cove. With morning and afternoon tea, you won't go hungry.

    At the end of a memorable 6-hour cruise, your captain returns you to Port Welshpool.
