2 Overview

Winter time is penguin nesting season! This is a critical time for the little penguins as they spend more time ashore to find a mate, lay some eggs and raise the chicks. To ensure minimal disturbance during this time, WA's Parks & Wildlife Services closes Penguin Island to the general public but have allowed Perth Wildlife Encounters to conduct strictly managed guided walks as part of our winter cruise program.

Penguin Island Wildlife Cruise Winter Tour Depart from Perth

 

Enjoy the scenic highlights of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park and keep a look out for the wildlife! This 60 minute glass bottom boat cruise takes in the ruggedly spectacular coastlines of Penguin, Seal & Bird Islands and takes advantage of the best wildlife spotting opportunities of the day. Wild dolphins, rare Australian sea lions, pelican rookeries, and birds of prey are regularly sighted and the friendly crew will get you right amongst the action!

 

The cruise disembarks on Penguin Island for a guided 30 minute walk that takes in the spectacular beaches, coastal look outs and nesting sea birds of this stunning island nature reserve.

 

Highlights:

  • Seeing rare Australian sea lions on the beach at Seal Island
  • Seeing wild dolphins at play (although sightings are regular, they are not guaranteed as the cruise is restricted to inside Shoalwater Bay)
  • Exploring the rugged islands and viewing nesting pelicans, cormorants and spotting other sea birds that live in the park
  • Drifting over seagrass meadows and limestone reefs spotting fish and other marine life through the glass bottom
  • Viewing the fossilized remnants of ancient tuart forests
  • Taking in spectacular coastal views, nesting sea birds and hearing about the latest little penguin research on a 30 minute guided walk of Penguin Island
