The cruise departs from the San Remo jetty, a picturesque fishing harbor at the start of Phillip Island bridge. On board the 'Kasey Lee' catamaran, guests can choose from indoor or outdoor seating. While cruising along Phillip Island, guests should be on the lookout for marine wildlife with regular sightings of Australian Fur Seals, Bottlenose or Common dolphins and various birds like the White-bellied Sea Eagle, Wedge-tailed Eagle, Australasian Gannet, Crested Tern and Shy Albatross.
