Wineglass Bay Cruise

Friday September 22, 2017

The Wineglass Bay Cruise is a great way to see the wonders of the Freycinet National Park from a unique perspective. The highlight is of course the wonderful geology of the area – the granite cliffs and sandy beaches that make this National Park such a great place to visit and explore.

Another major highlight of the cruise is the wildlife. During the cruise you are likely (no promises of course!) to see some or all of the following: dolphins, seals, birdlife including sea eagles, terns and other seabirds. At the right time of year whale sightings are possible too.

Seals are very regularly spotted on the cruise and seem just as curious about us as we are of them!

Although not particularly high on your average “birders” wish list, the common seagull is also, well – quite commonly seen up here too

The Cruise departs from Coles Bay each day and runs for the better part of 5 hours. A very nice “bento” style lunch box is included in the tour fee. Click here for all the details.
