Penguin Island Tour with Dolphin and Sea Lion Cruise
  • Penguin Island Tour with Dolphin and Sea Lion Cruise

    Discover the wildlife of Penguin Island and Shoalwater Island Marine Park during a 90-minute cruise with an expert guide. Watch wild dolphins frolicking near your boat, circle small islands to observe Australian sea lions and seabirds, then disembark at Penguin Island, home to the largest colony of little penguins in Western Australia. Observe the ranger-led little penguin feeding at the Discovery Centre, then explore the center and island on your own. Swim, hike, snorkel, picnic—the choice is yours. Simply catch the ferry back to Shoalwater when you are done.

    Make your own way to Shoalwater, located about a 45-minute drive from central Perth, to meet your boat for the 90-minute cruise through Shoalwater Island Marine Park.

    As your boat sets out, your guide locates some of the 200 bottlenose dolphins that live in these waters. Many are known to your guides and given names such as Logo, Boomerang and Blizzard. Learn fascinating facts about dolphins such as how they use cooperative hunting methods to catch their food. You may see mothers looking after newborn calves or witness the acrobatic mammals jumping next to the boat and riding in the wake. Your boat is equipped with an underwater microphone that also allows you to hear the dolphins’ clicks and whistles.

    After enjoying the dolphins, take in scenic highlights of Shoalwater Bay as you cruise by Seal Island to see Australian sea lions up close and seabirds such as pelicans, ospreys, cormorants and terns that nest on the rugged islands.

    Your cruise ends at beautiful Penguin Island, a nature reserve that is home to Western Australia’s largest colony of little penguins. Arrive at the island just in time to see the pint-size penguins feeding at the Discovery Centre. A park ranger leads a feeding presentation that lasts about 20 minutes and answers visitor questions about the center, which provides care for injured wild penguins or those deemed unfit for release. You can watch the little penguins swimming and waddling in a habitat that resembles their natural home.

    The rest of your day is up to you. Enjoy free time to explore the nature reserve, take an easy 45-minute hike along the nature trail, swim, snorkel, picnic or simply relax. When you're ready, make your way to the jetty to catch the ferry for the 5-minute ride back to the mainland.

      We have good sightings of dolphins from the cruise. Only regret is that we are unable to spot any wild penguins on the island.

      This a great trip in a really fast boat. They are really safety conscious and rightly so because while the boat goes slowly around the marine park once in the ocean it's a thrilling jet boat ride - seatbelts and hanging on were essential. Point of the speed is to get you to where the dolphins are and they found them and then teamed up with a bigger boat to go quickly and produce waves to induce the dolphins to surf which they did - spectacular. Once we returned to the quiet marine park we very close to sea lions on the beach and some swam up right by us. We also saw by dress of Pelicans, osprey and a sea eagle. They then land you on Penguin Islands so you can watch them feed orphan little blue penguins and walk around the island.

      Really good customer service and most important an amazing tour. We seen dolphins, the highlight was them 'surfing'. As well sea lion, seals, penguins and various sea birds. After the ride on the great boat we stayed on the island, relaxed and snorkelled. Would go back.

      You actually will only see captive penguins as they are out in the ocean fishing and return to land in the evening. The captive ones are adorable and they do a commentary and feeding at certain times. The island is covered in seagulls and other sea birds. There are wood walkways on the island for a walk with nice views. We were able to see some Sea Lions and some pelicans that were making mating displays, as well as wild dolphins feeding and surfing while on the cruise. Overall it was a nice day out.
