BACKGROUND

Skipper Pete originally trained as a Cartographer before moving into National Park Management. Skipper Pete was involved in setting up the Grampians NP and Pt. Nepean NP in the 1980’s and worked for the Museum of Victoria to manage an Exhibition on Salt. From 1988 – 2003, Skipper Pete worked to improve the Mornington Peninsula Ocean beaches. In 1996, Skipper Pete traveled to Scotland for 6 months with Scottish Natural Heritage. In 2003, Skipper Pete became a Marine Park Ranger. Sea-Safari on Lakes-Explorer was created in 2007.

MODERN VESSEL

Lakes-Explorer 12 (formerly Murrumbidgee Explorer) was originally built in 2000 to work on the Murrumbidgee River at Wagga NSW. Skipper Pete purchased the vessel in 2007 and made modifications to suit the Gippsland Lakes. Lakes-Explorer 12: MSV 11438 is registered with Transport Safety Victoria TSV.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Sea-Safaris and Water-Taxi services are often to remote locations with no road access thus suitable clothing, drinks and food may be required. There is no toilet on the vessel however many locations have public toilets. Binoculars, maps and identification guides are on-board.

  • "Fun, educational & cost effective! Really worthwhile outing. Kids learnt about wildlife, got as close to seal as one can get. Glad we didn't book the big boats! Highly recommended."

    SIMON P
  • "Great experience! We enjoyed a lovely family outing which was very informative and enjoyable. We learnt about the local bird life and about the lakes environs."

    DESMA P
  • "Very good! We were lucky enough to see Dolphins, seals, bird life. Friendly and informative couple on the boat which is smaller than the others so you're closer to the Dolphins."
