Full description
Departing from Sorrento Pier, enjoy a welcome tea or coffee, before venturing into the sheltered shallows of Port Phillip Bay to embark on an exciting once in a lifetime adventure.   Make your way to Chinaman's Hat, a man-made structure built to protect local Australian fur seals. Go for a snorkel in the structure’s shallow waters and get up close and personal with the ever-curious seals who are waiting to share their underwater world with you. Next, go for a swim with dolphins. Float on the water’s surface as these playful creatures swim beneath you and circle the group, showing off their amazing abilities. Finish your experience with a snorkel with the sea dragons, a unique species of seahorse native to the area, and discover the prehistoric looking creatures for yourself in their natural habitat.

This was the perfect day out on the water and can be suited to those who love the water and those who don't- my husband doesn't like snorkeling but was able to go as a spectator. The experience swimming with the seals was amazing! The dolphins were very cool too but swim off so fast that you don't really get the register that they are there before they're gone again. I was very impressed with the onboard cafe and loved that there were some inclusions for free. The crew were very friendly and I had a great time!

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

Amazing seals swim experience, we also saw a giant sting ray and the seals swim right next to you. Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins so unless you are a Melbourne local and can come back to see the dolphins a second time I would recommend to just book the seals swim tour as it is half the price and there you have the guarantee to get the service you paid for.
