Full description
Enjoy the scenic highlights of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park during a 1-hour glass bottom boat cruise that explores the ruggedly spectacular coastlines of Penguin, Seal & Bird Islands and takes advantage of the best wildlife spotting opportunities.  Take in the beautiful scenery in the marine park and through the glass panels you can also see what goes on beneath the surface. Wild dolphins, rare Australian sea lions, pelican rookeries, and birds of prey are regularly sighted and our friendly crew will get you right amongst the action.

The trip out to the rocks and islands was a success. Enjoyed seeing the dolphins, pelicans, sea lions and pelicans. I would like to do it again and spend more time on Penguin Island. Recovering from a broken foot so not as agile as normal!
