Dolphins Swim Cruise - Sorrento - Moonraker Charters

Experience the adventure of a lifetime on an exciting 3 hour Dolphin Swim Cruise on the sheltered shallow waters of Port Phillip Bay...

Our cruises commence with a welcome tea or coffee, after which we travel out into the sheltered shallows of Port Phillip Bay to embark on an exciting once in a lifetime adventure!

We arrive at Chinaman's Hat where you can put your newfound skills into action! This is a local spot where the ever-curious Australian Fur Seals are waiting to share their underwater world with you. Chinaman’s Hat is a man-made structure built just for the Seals! Offering shallow water snorkeling and a beautiful white sand seabed, this area has a maximum depth of 4 meters.

Once the dolphins are located we get into groups of 10 people and prepare to enter the water. As you float on the surface of the water your guide will try to entice the dolphins to spend time with the group so they can swim beneath you, after which they often circle swimmers, showing off their amazing abilities. Every swim is unique and the time we spend with the dolphins varies. It must be appreciated that they are completely wild and the interactions are on the animals’ terms.

Our cruises also include a snorkel with the Sea Dragons. These prehistoric looking seahorses are Victoria’s Marine emblem and are unique to our area, being closely related to the famous leafy sea dragons.

Without a doubt, you will enjoy an experience that is truly a breathtaking adventure - and one you will never forget!

A Wonderful Trip

We had an awesome time snorkelling with the seals and dolphins. The crew were helpful and easy to talk to. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see these amazing animals in the wild. My daughter is already planning another trip for next Summer.

Excellent

Great afternoon. We didn’t get into the water but our teens did. All 4 of us enjoyed the experience. Staff were very friendly and helpful and made sure everyone got to see a dolphin . My sons really enjoyed the relaxed swim with the seals .

Our day!

Our experience was amazing. As a single mother with two boys(one with autism, one with ADHD) I only bought a swimming ticket for myself to assist the children in the water. I really don't like the water. I was a little overwhelmed pre thinking how I was going to manage with both of the boys but the amazing crew were so helpful and hands on, I even had opportunities to enjoy the experience for myself. I great day to share with the family.

Magic!

The weather wasn't with us (-bit cloudy, not warm-) but still we got to see and swim with Dolphins and seals even met a Ray (no idea which one). The seals were little annoying as they were purchasing the Dolphin and nibbling their tail! Because of this some of us went into the waste 4 or 5 times, the team REALLY did their best to make it happen. Thank you guys! The team of the moonraker was fantastic... Really nice and open don't be like me who was scared to ask questions the first 2 hours... They will answer all of your questions and there are no stupid ones! We also met Sea dragons! I have a couple videos on my social médias if you are curious (mawimawiwi).. I can't share them here though :(
