I had been looking forward to seeing the little penguins on Phillip Island and they did not disappoint. Our drive there was relaxing and informative as a DVD was played explaining about the life of the these penguins. Our driver provided a good narration along the way. I thought that the Maru animal farm was a little disappointing as I had been to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Cape Woolamai was amazing and more time there would have been nice. Adequate time was allowed for the Penguin Parade. Everything was well organized and overall very enjoyable. Our driver Roger was excellent. I would definitely recommend this tour.
My teenage son and I went on this excursion. I must admit I was a bit nervous since I don't snorkel. First of all, we were picked up punctually and made our way to the MICAT for the ferry ride over. Our driver, Nathan made us feel very comfortable and had a great sense of humour. The ferry ride overe was great. once we arrived, snorkeling was first on the agenda due to the tides. I passed on the snorkeling and walked on the beach and swam but my son, who had never snorkel led before, did it. He enjoyed the snorkeling tremendously. While Nathan made lunch for us on e beach, we swam and kayaked. Then off to the Desert for sandboarding. The drive there was an adventure in itself but the driver was very careful and it was fun, rocking and rolling!
The sand dune was huge but Nathan gave us all very good instructions on how to do it safely. I am not a daredevil but I even did it twice and loved it!! We then drove back to the beach to catch the ferry back. It was an amazing day. I am so glad we did it!!
Nathan was very good narrating along the drive and letting us know what we were seeing, where we we going. I would highly recommend this trip to all. It was a beautiful day!
