Experience Oceanic Victor
Take a 10-minute walk to the ‘wild side’ across the historic causeway linking Victor Harbor and Granite Island for a range of wildlife experiences.
Life beneath the waves
Oceanic Victor offers 2 hours of fun learning and excitement for the whole family, adventure seekers and those wanting to experience life beneath the waves.
A quick trip on our luxurious catamaran will deliver you to the Oceanic Victor in-sea aquarium sheltered in the lee of Granite Island. Once you arrive you will be fitted out in a warm wetsuit with mask, booties and gloves, and then into the water to swim with the Southern Bluefin Tuna – the “Ferraris of the ocean.”
If you don’t want to get wet, you may still feed our Tuna or venture below the surface in our glass-sided underwater viewing area. There are many other species of local fish to view and we have a touch tank for the little people to enjoy.
Oceanic Victor’s aquarium provides a safe and exciting marine environment for those who otherwise may never have a chance to experience the fascinating and diverse marine world – and to hopefully inspire our next generation to appreciate and respect its eco systems. We encourage our guests to look after what we have through hands-on experience and to be thrilled at being up close and personal with these incredible fish. But most of all, it’s fun!
Guided nature & penguin tour
Join a guided tour to discover Granite Island – home of the Little Penguin.
Granite Island is home to a small colony of rare, wild Little Penguins.
Twilight tours also provide a chance to spot Granite Island’s Little Penguins as they return from the ocean at sunset. Visiting the island at dusk is ONLY available on a guided tour to ensure protection of the wild penguin colony.
Specially tailored tours for students in early primary through to senior years run seven days a week and can be adapted to support specific educational outcomes on request.
*All Penguin tours meet on Granite Island in an allocated area near the four tall pine trees visible from the causeway. There is a penguin meeting sign and your tour guide will be wearing a high-visibility top. Please allow at least 15 minutes to cross the causeway (jetty).
