Wildlife & Ecology Tour
Impulse Boat Charter
Have you ever wondered what lives at the bottom of Port Phillip Bay? Students will examine creatures from a sample taken from the bottom of Port Phillip and observe their amazing structures that help them survive in the sea. The cruise also visits an Australian Fur Seal haul out site and Australasian Gannet colony in Port Phillip Bay.
We take in excess of 8000 students a year out into Port Phillip Bay. Our two hour educational Biology Tours are specifically designed and run by the Marine Discovery Center for School groups. Ages vary from 5 years old right through to adults.
