One of the best experiences seal watching cruise in Phillip island

It was very convenient to get a ticket and no need to wait in the queue, also cheaper than normal ticket price. It’s worth spending money for 2 hours cruise experience. Experience Oz also have a lot of other deals and I am looking forward to get more. One of the best things to enjoy in Philip Island, thank you again Experience Oz.

An awesome experience. We cannot fault the whole process.

We had an awesome experience! The captain, crew and the staff were very helpful and made it an experience to remember. The whole process was easy and we had no issues whatsoever. Will definitely book again in the near future. It's great to support a locally owned business.
