Wildlife Adventure Cruise - Departing Sorrento Pier

An incredible wildlife sightseeing cruise along the Portsea coastline to Port Phillip Bay entrance!


  • Seasonal wildlife viewing of Albatross, Humpback Whales, Dolphins and Australian Fur Seals
  • Comfortable, speedy purpose built touring boat with plenty of room
  • Interesting commentary on the history, environment and wildlife of Port Phillip Bay
  • Pass through Port Phillip Bay entrance - buzzing with large cargo ships

Departing Sorrento Pier, we take our comfortable, purpose built touring vessel for a cruise alongside the Portsea coastline to the Port Phillip Bay entrance.

We will come across the famous Australian Fur Seals lounging out near the Port Phillip Bay entrance and visit the Australasian Gannet colony nearby. This makes for amazing close up wildlife viewing from the comfort of our boat.

We will then cruise the calm waters of the Ticonderoga Bay Dolphin Sanctuary before returning to Sorrento Pier. Keep that camera handy for your chance to capture the Dolphins that often jump alongside the boat, the perfect way to top off a great tour!

Meeting point: Tours depart daily from Sorrento Pier, located at the end of Port Nepean Road.
