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!
