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.

FAMILY OWNED SINCE 1920

Peels Cruises is a local family owned business operating for 4 generations. It's the longest serving cruise company on the Gippsland Lakes.

Our first Cruise boats started in 1920 in Lakes Entrance, after Harold Peel returned home from World War 1. We now operate three world class vessels on all sightseeing tours of the Gippsland Lakes.
