Seal Watching Tours at Lobster Shack
So the kids are on school holidays, you’re on a much needed Christmas holiday from work and the sun is FINALLY shining after Australia’s longest winter. What do you do with all your free time? You go to Cervantes of course! Home to the famous Pinnacles desert, Cervantes will ensure your Perth day trip is one you won’t forget.
And what’s the perfect family activity to kick off the day? How about one of Lobster Shack’s Seal Tours that will take you through the magical Cervantes Islands to see the Australian Sea Lions, one of the world’s rarest seals.
Departing from the Lobster Shack, your skipper and crew will keep you entertained and well informed, as Cervantes is rich in history, dating back to 1844 with the Wreck of the Cervantes Whaling Brig.
Upon arrival at the Cervantes Islands, the boat our tours head out on is positioned close to the shore as the Sea Lions begin to stir. It isn’t long before they are close to the boat putting on a show for their guests. Sea Lions are one of the world’s rarest species of Cinerea. As well as viewing Seal Lions, on board you will have the unique experience of viewing the world-famous Pinnacles from the ocean.
The Australian Sea Lion is only found in Western Australia and South Australia. These guys can live for up to 20 years! You’ve probably seen the lazing on the warm sandy beaches or rocks if you’ve ever been up to Cervantes.
Our seal tours run weekly across two of Lobster Shack’s boats, the Assassin and the Shack Attack. Catering for up to 45 passengers, you could even get the whole extended family or friend group to join in the fun!
And while you’re up there, there’s plenty of other things to do to fill up your day. Obviously, make sure you check out the Pinnacles for a holiday photo op like never before. And when you and the kids are feeling peckish, there’s no better place to eat than Lobster Shack for the freshest lobster you could get your hands on. And there’s something on the menu for everyone, including your favourite fish and chips, prawns and burgers.
After you’ve fed the beast, why not check out the home of the oldest living fossils on the planet! The Stromatolites are estimated to be over 3,000 years old and can be viewed all year long from the Lake Thetis boardwalk.
And to wrap up your day, jam packed with things to do before you head back to Perth, there’s not much that can beat a beautiful sunset over the Turquoise coast over a balmy summer’s night. Cervantes is blessed to have some of the most stunning untouched coastline in the world, making it a must-see for visitors and tourists. Try Thirsty Point, Hangover Bay and Kangaroo Point for a day of family-friendly swimming, snorkelling, and an incredible panoramic sunset over the horizon that’s so unique, you’ll remember forever.
