Sea Safari is based on the concept of a land safari, but instead of observing land wildlife, Sea Safari instead focuses on marine based animal and plant life.
Travelling in a custom built vessel, you will search, investigate and record sea-birds and marine life around Lakes Entrance. A take-home worksheet is handed out as you navigate the waterways using GPS and Chart-plotter technology as well as measuring salinity levels and visiting remote lake-side beaches.
Two Safaris are available:
Rigby Island - A 3 hour Safari, commences from Post Office Jetty in Lakes Entrance, navigating around Rigby Island, taking in Rigby Beach and Barrier Landing. You get a great view of the Entrance to the Gippsland Lakes and depending on the weather, a couple of guided walks.
Departure is usually at 10am. Bookings essential, see details below.
Harbour & Ocean Entrance - Departs Post Office Jetty to cruise past the commercial Port of Lakes Entrance and Bulolock Island, to view the ocean entrance and North Arm Lake.
