Mussel Bay Cruise Tour with Port Phillip Ferries

Join Port Phillip Ferries for a unique cruise around Portarlington’s mussel farms on their ‘Mussel Bay Cruise' event.

Get the low-down on the Bellarine’s most famous export. The region produces up to 60 percent of Australia’s mussels. Enjoy the magnificent Bellarine Express outside of its normal scheduled services.

And the best part of all? The Little Mussel Café will be on hand to chat all things mussels and to give the inside scoop on what goes on behind the scenes to bring this delicious product to your plate (or bowl).
