Overview
More
Refuge Cove Cruises conduct full day cruises in the waters around the magnificent Wilsons Promontory National Park in Gippsland, Victoria Australia. Relax onboard a brand new 42 passenger catamaran while you visit the sites this area is famous for including Skull Rock, Kanowna Seal Colony, Prom Lighthouse and the many beautiful coves along this scenic coastline. The custom designed vessel has a bow door allowing you to step straight off the boat onto the beach at Refuge Cove. There is plenty of time to explore the beach and surrounds and the boat is licenced so you can enjoy a cool drink with your lunch in one of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Learn about the area's rich history from your helpful crew and admire wildlife with regular sightings of seals, dolphins & whales.
