Really great experience, even with choppy, cold water. Exciting to see the seals up close and getting the opportunity to see a big stingray. Experienced and professional crew, and well allotted on board Cafe. My only complaint would be that there was no signage or directions when we arrived and, although the invitation specified arriving early, we left late.

Our guide, Adrian, was very informative and helpful. The wineries we visited were excellent, provided interesting information and were generous with the tastings. Lunch was tasty and efficiently provided, with plentiful helpings and pleasant service. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone living or travelling in Victoria.

The Staff were so nice and helpful when answering questions, the constructor Carl tried so hard to find sea dragons and found some and made sure everyone got the chance to see it, the tour was amazing would definitely recommend
