About Us

Swimming with wild dolphins & seals and snorkeling at one of the world-renowned diving and snorkeling site Pope’s Eye marine park is an amazing & unforgettable experience. Sea All Dolphin Swims’ friendly and experienced crew make our tours suitable for everyone.

Operating from historic Queenscliff, Victoria, Sea All Dolphins Swims is a nature-based tourism business offering a wide range of marine experiences.

With a clever blend of fun adventure and education, we will ensure your Sea All Dolphin Swims experience will be one you’ll remember forever.

Our half-day cruises are suitable for all ages, sizes, and abilities. Sea All staff recognize that for many people a marine experience such as this can be a real challenge.

However, our experienced and friendly staff are excellent at providing a safe and pleasurable experience, whether you are a first-time swimmer/snorkeler or you are a regular in the water.  We always do our best to make sure that you have the most exciting, safe and uplifting experience possible while showcasing the best that Port Phillip Bay has to offer.

Our Vessel – The Maureen M

The Maureen M is a beautiful 36-foot timber vessel rich in character with a current survey for up to 42 people. The Maureen M was specifically designed for use within Port Phillip Bay, operating as the first ferry commissioned to take passengers between the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas.

Since 1995 the Maureen M has been operating as a tour operator taking clients swimming with the local wild populations of Burrunan Dolphins and Australian Fur Seals. Over these years the Maureen has been tweaked to become what is arguably the most versatile tour vessel operating in southern Port Phillip Bay.

Today the Maureen M boasts:

  • a large boom net which can carry up to 4 people at once, it is the base for our rope ride activities and a platform for which we swim with the dolphins
  • Our roof is accessible to our clients. It provides excellent shading and comfort to those below and it also offers an excellent viewing point for our local scenery and the dolphins when they are swimming alongside the boat. The roof is also utilised as a part of our ‘commando run’ along Point Nepean, and is utilised as a jumping platform in our roof jump activities.
  • Our duck board at the back of the vessel is equipped with a ladder to make entering and exiting the water very easy. The duck board is also utilised as a platform for our ‘Duck Spa’ activity. This is very popular for those who are keen on a little more thrill on their trip.
  • We have a gas cooker on board to provide you with a cup of tea or a plate of fresh scallops depending on the trip
  • The vessel is fully equipped with deck lighting and a speaker system to allow after hours entertainment.
  • With minimal effort, we can also convert the Maureen to a fishing vessel if the need ever arises. Due to massive deck space and all around the boat rails we can have u to 20 people fishing from the vessel comfortably.
