Closer to the Park

Closer to the Marine Life

We hold a marine mammal permit, allowing us to respectfully view seals, penguins and occasionally dolphins at close quarters.

Closer to the Experts

Our boat skippers love the park. Along the way they'll share their stories and years of knowledge - unscripted and from the heart.
