Leaving Queenscliff twice daily during the warmer months, Sea All Dolphin Swims conducts tours within the southern reaches of Port Phillip Bay. Surrounded by the historic fishing ports of Queenscliff and Sorrento, the area boasts some fascinating maritime and military history and is home to the highly diverse Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park, world renowned for its rich biodiversity and unique marine life.
Our half-day tour generally starts with a snorkel at Popes Eye (part of the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park). Its shallow and protected waters are teeming with colourful fish and marine life making it the ideal place to brush up on our snorkelling skills.
With our new found skills and a heightened sense of adventure we head off to Chinaman’s Hat, a local haul-out site that is a temporary home to 30-40 young Australian Fur Seals waiting to share their water world with us.
Just when you think port Phillip Bay couldn't get better, we set off in search for the dolphins and usually find them not to far away. Swimming with dolphins is controlled by strict legislation (deservedly so!) and our patient instructors will ensure that both snorkellers and dolphins benefit from the experience.
While sharing these unforgettable experiences with passengers from all over the world, you can listen to expert interpretation from our friendly crew as they describe the remarkable wildlife and special features along the way.
Our half day adventures are suitable for all ages, sizes, and abilities - couples, families, school groups, and social and special interest groups.
Please allow for some flexibility as due to weather and water conditions. We may need to alter program or locality to suit.
Whether sightseeing or snorkelling your Sea All Dolphin Swims adventure will be one you will remember forever.
Please be aware that the dolphins in Port Phillip Bay are wild animals and so interactions cannot be guaranteed on every trip.
