Philip island tour
Thomasthorp, 19-12-2022
Excellent trip hosted by Kevin yesterday to see the Phillip Island penguins as well as various other animal related stops along the way. His local knowledge was really helpful in ensuring we got to our seats at the right time to see many penguins exit the sea at dusk. Would highly recommend Kevin and his tours. Thanks
Great tour

Kevin was thorough and assured we had our needs met. The penguins were a delight. The scenery, stunning. Money well spent!
Sean great for Phillip Island tour

Sean was a really good tour guide, gave lots of background info at Moonlit Sanctuary and on Phillip Island. Small tour worked well, Penguin Plus experience great

A intimate experience with 8 other travellers. Sean, our guide/ driver was awesome in sharing his knowledge throughout the journey that time simply passed so quickly cos’ it was so enjoyable.

We will definitely be back to do more of such tours with Oceania.
Little Penguins!!!
MikaDelilah, 08-01-2023
This Phillip Island tour was definitely a highlight of our trip to Australia. Watching the penguins was amazing and Phillip Island is truly beautiful. The Moonlit Sanctuary was a great place to see some Australian critters. The whole tour was totally great! Like I said, a highlight of our trip (especially the penguins).

We had an awesome tour guide, Martin, too! He kept us entertained while driving between locations (including his knowledge of collective nouns) and was super informative as we looked for wildlife- as we drove, at the sanctuary, and a with the penguins. He is tops!

I highly recommend this tour!
Great tour with Sean

Such a wonderful experience to see the penguins on Philip Island as well as the animals at the moonlit sanctuary. Really enjoyed our guide - Sean’s well paced and informative tour. Also liked the small size of the tour group.
Amazing Aussie Animal Adventure
Canuks_2022, 30-12-2022
We highly recommend a day with Oceana tours exploring moonlit sanctuary and Phillip Island. Martin, our tour guide, was highly informative and engaging. Loved meeting all the Aussie animals particularly the little penguins at the penguine parade. An absolute must for any visitors in the Melbourne area.
Good but not Great
RobWWWW, 17-12-2022
This tour was OK, but I wish I had gone with a different one. That is, is was perfectly competent. The tour guide was uninspiring but competent. He did his job but I felt there were things and tips that he missed. I didn't see much advantage to the smaller group (9 on the bus vs 25 on some of the larger coaches), as we went later and missed some of the presentations and the animals weren't that hungry at that point.

Basically, it was good but not great. Not worth the extra money for the smaller group and later pickup.
Penguin Parade
K1670OFrichardb, 09-01-2023
This was a really good trip with a excellent guide.
The trip makes 2 stops before reaching the Penguin parade so there is plenty of opportunity to stretch your legs on route.
Fun time

Kevin our driver told us a few things about living in Melbourne on our way there. The stops to see the views and animals were pleasant. The penguin parade was great. I was in the Penguin plus section and was really happy to have a close encounter with the cute penguins.
