Have Questions? Call Us 5258 3889

What is the minimum age that can go out on your boat?

There is no minimum or maximum age. We have had children as young as 2 and people as old as 86 snorkeling. Children under 5 (i.e. 4 years old and under) are free if they don’t swim, otherwise, they are charged a full child fare. Prams & pushers not recommended. (Contact office if necessary on 03 5258 3889)

Do I have to be a good swimmer?

Many of our snorkelers cannot swim at all. Thick wetsuits offer high flotation so that you cannot possibly sink.

Are we guaranteed to see dolphins?

Unfortunately not. Our dolphins are wild and free to swim wherever they wish. This makes the experience all the more special when the dolphins do interact. We see dolphins approximately 80% of tours, strict codes ensure minimal impact when we do.

I get seasick easily. I was wondering how rough it get on the tour and what’s the longest we are on the boat for any one time?

Our tours take place in relatively sheltered waters and very rarely get very rough. Cruises between various snorkel sites on the tour are about 20 minute’s duration. Tours are canceled if conditions become unsafe. Anyone can get sea sick at any time, often it\’s due to if you are prone to sea sickness or car sickness. If that is you we recommend you take motion sickness tablets, readily available from the chemist, approximately 1/2 hr prior to departure. We also sell sea sickness bands in store for a fair price which have proven to be extremely effective.

Are we allowed to take alcohol on board?

For safety, we don’t permit alcohol to be consumed until all snorkeling is finished. For special occasions, it may be appropriate to bring your own drinks for the cruise home, but usually, our tours are so action packed that we don’t often have the time to drink it.

Do you have diving masks for poor eyesight?

We have some masks with both positive and negative magnification.

Do you take out people with disabilities?

Sea All welcomes people with disabilities and applaud those willing to try. However, the nature of boats and the sea may make it unfeasible for some seriously disabled. Please contact our office for more information.

Are there sharks where you go?

This is the most frequently asked question, however, it is one that bears little concern. There are sharks in all Australian coastal waters, many of these species are not harmful or considered dangerous to humans. The business has been in operation since 1996 and in that time we have not had an experience with a potentially harmful predator.  The snorkel sites that we visit are also renowned for being free from sharks. All of our swims are highly supervised and the appropriate risk management procedures are in place that satisfies the government regulations.

I’m in the latter stages of pregnancy. Can I still swim with the dolphins?

You will be the best judge. Many pregnant women come out with us for that special experience. We have wetsuits that should fit all and instructors very keen to help. Getting out of the water is similar to getting out of a swimming pool.

Do we need to take lunch or something to eat?

We provide light refreshments in the form of hot & cold drinks, fresh fruit, and biscuits throughout the cruise. You are welcome to bring your own refreshments if you wish.

I am rather large do you have a wetsuit to fit?

We have wetsuits to fit all sizes from 2yrs to size 24+
