What a great day.
We were picked up in small but very comfortable van by our tour guide Fred.
We were a small group, only 8 including my family of 4.
Fred was brilliant from the start, what a colourful and lovely character.
Fred safely conveyed us to Phillip Island for the Penguin Parade and on route conveyed his vast wealth of knowledge on the subjects of Oz wildlife,geography and history to us , it was so interesting.
In addition Fref recounted tales from past tours all of which were well received, thry were emotional , humerous and added to the fun of the day.
Fred took us to some great photo spots on route.
The parade itself was everything we expected, just amazing and it is a must see.
On our return Fred stopped so we could get some food, everything we needed Fred was on hand to provide.
The day was made all the more special by Fred.
Thanks Fred and thanks Oceanic , we will definately use you again.
Fred never retire mate.

My friends and I really enjoyed ourselves on this tour! Mehmet was a wonderful and funny driver and host and highlighted to us everything we needed to know/see. Although it’s a rainy day for us and super cold, it’s still an great experience seeing penguins and other animals in nature. Seeing the penguins go home to their burrows after a day at sea shows me what a magnificent Creator we have, to have created such beautiful animals that just knows what they’re supposed to do!

If anyone wants to come, especially in the winter seasons, do wear enough warm clothes as well as a poncho in case it rains. You can buy a disposable poncho here for $6 AUD if you don’t have one.

Fred led our excursion to Phillip Island, Penguin Parade and Moonlight Sanctuary Conservation Park. He proved to be a knowledgeable and most entertaining guide and story teller. We enjoyed the animals at Moonlit Sanctuary and the gorgeous views at Summerlands before the Penguin Parade. This was certainly one of the highlights of our vist to Australia.We loved watching these remarkable animals swim ashore and waddle home to their burrows. Upon our return to Melbourne, Fred rushed our group to see the flaming torches at Crowne Plaza. When we mentioned that we were renting a car to drive the Great Ocean Road the followiing day, Fred connected with our daughter on Facebook and, after arriving home late after our drive back from Phillip Island, he sent a message with wonderful suggestions of places not to be missed and suggested eateries. It was very kind and over and above the 'call of duty' to recommend beautiful places we would not have otherwise known to visit. We are looking forward to reading Fred's book about his funny and heartwarming experiences as a tour guide! Meredith, Randy, and Rosie Westgate

Moonlit Sanctuary was great. First time seeing a wombat and a Kookaburra and they are every bit as wonderful as you might imagine them to be in seeing their pictures. Fed a wallaby and a kangaroo. Saw a very shy and adorable koala.

Phillip Island and the penguin parade. Who doesn’t like penguins?

But Fred really made the trip special. His love for being a tour guide really showed. His wealth of knowledge and familiarity with the animals made us very comfortable with approaching the animals and enriched our experience.

Ask for Fred Garcarczyk. Don’t worry. It’s pronounced Fred.
