What you can expect
Get in touch with nature's friendliest mammals when you snorkel among cheerful dolphins and seals on this half-day tour. Experience the marine wildlife and pristine waters of southern Port Phillip Bay, known for its world-class swimming beaches and coastal parks.
Before heading out on your dolphin adventure, get outfitted with a modern dive suit and snorkeling equipment by your helpful onboard crew. After a safety briefing and a tour around the boat, set out for your first snorkel at Pope's Eye, part of Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park. First, your expert instructors teach you some snorkeling basics in the shallows of this unique lagoon. Then begin to master your skills while gazing at colorful fish and fascinating marine creatures.
For your second snorkel, cruise toward an old shipping structure and encounter a colony of seals gracefully swimming around you as you descend into the aqua-blue water. Once you think things couldn't get any better, look around to see a pod of smiley bottlenose dolphins. Hold on to the mermaid line as they glide around your small group.
After your long snorkeling experience, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate on the boat and enjoy the sun as your boat cruises the shoreline, passing by historical buildings and deserted beaches. You may have the opportunity to throw in a fishing trawl for some fresh salmon before returning back to shore.
