Bird Watching

The most common seabirds seen on our cruises include the Shy Albatross, Silver Gull, Pied Cormorant, Black-faced Cormorant, Crested Tern, Short-tailed Shearwater, Pacific Gull, Kelp Gull, Sooty Oystercatcher, and of course the Little Penguin.

On the Seal Watching Cruise and the Winter Whale Cruise you will cruise past the breeding colonies of Little Penguins, Crested Terns and Silver Gulls on Summerlands Peninsula. While on the Captain’s Lunch and Cape Woolamai Cruise, you have a very good chance of spotting Wedge tail and White bellied Sea Eagles.

Did you know? Australian fur seals do not eat birds, which is why you can see many different bird species at Seal Rocks. Other seals such as New Zealand Fur Seal, Sea Lion and Leopard Seal are known to eat birds, and you can occasionally see these seals around Phillip Island.

See the Seasonal cycle to find out which birds you are likely to see when you hop on board one of our cruises
