Prepare for your Perfect Day

The Poor Knights Islands are spectacular; there is as much to see and do above the water as there is down below.

Take command of a kayak, or don mask and snorkel, and find a whole other way to discover the Islands.

Our very special day-trip, Perfect Day offers the ultimate non-diving Poor Knights experience, with sight-seeing, kayaking, cave explorations, snorkeling, swimming, snippets of fascinating history and Island facts and great food. We are often accompanied by marine mammals, including whales, dolphins and orca. The boat is incredibly well fitted-out, with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, upstairs viewing, plenty of facilities and the fabulous ‘fish cam’ live video streaming underwater shots right into the boat.

Air conditioned comfort and ample shade from the sun, or you can relax and get a tan! The indoor outdoor flow allows for maximum viewing, with two leveled decks to get that better perspective and a great photo!
