Depart from Lakes Entrance and explore the vast Gippsland Lakes. It is abundant in bird life, fish and island based wildlife.
Whilst cruising, you may see many Seals, Dolphins, Kangaroos, Sea Eagles and when passing the Islands, you'll see Kangaroos in their natural habitat.
Your Skipper gives a full expert commentary on the Gippsland Lakes and all the wildlife that lives here. The kids will love it and you'll learn something too.
We have several Charter Cruises to choose from. The Thunderbird cruises the Gippsland Lakes on sightseeing Tours, and has a fully stocked Kiosk and Bar for your enjoyment. The Stormbird takes you across to the village of Metung, where you stop for lunch and have a chance to explore Metung.
The Thunderbird is our largest Catamaran vessel. The sightseeing cruises include 30-70km cruises past the Entrance, then into Reeves Channel, Bancroft Bay, around the shores of Metung, Lake King and into the housing canals of Paynesville. We then briefly visit Lake Victoria before returning to Lakes Entrance.
The Gippsland Lakes are abundant in wildlife, sealife and birdlife. The Lakes have their own colonies of Seals and the rare species of Burrunan Dolphin. Sightings are not always possible, but we do our best to find where they're "hanging out" today.
Cruising past many of the islands in the Gippsland Lakes gives you a close up view of Kangaroos and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Your Skipper will give a full commentary on the history and nature of the Gippsland Lakes.
Peels Cruises is a local family owned business operating for 4 generations. It's the longest serving cruise company on the Gippsland Lakes.
