The cool temperate waters offer excellent viewing of the creatures that live there and the luxuriant and rarely seen plant life is a spectacle itself. Your guide has many years of experience and can offer comprehensive and knowledgeable interpretation. Every day is different and the effect of the East Australian current is at times dramatic with many different life forms travelling in it. The trips are subject to weather, so please telephone ahead for a daily update on conditions and sailing times. You can also check the blackboard at our office/museum at the Gulch in Bicheno. Tours take 45 minutes.
