Moonraker Dolphin Swims

Experience a half day activity swimming with wild seals and dolphins only 90 minutes from Melbourne. You will experience snorkelling with Moonraker Dolphin Swims alongside friendly fur seals and watch wild dolphins around you.

Your adventure begins at Sorrento Pier where you collect all your snorkelling equipment and step aboard your luxury tour boat to experience a magical three hour adventure.

Your cruise commences with an introductory on-board snorkel demonstration, after which you travel out into the sheltered shallows of Port Phillip Bay.

Arriving at Chinaman's Hat where you can put your new found skills into action, the ever curious Australian Fur Seals are waiting to share their underwater world with you.

From Chinaman's Hat cruise over to Popes Eye (Marine Park) for a look at the Australasian Gannets and a snorkel with the vast array of colourful fish inhabiting the marine park.

From here on, cruise magnificent Port Phillip Bay in search of the inspiring Bottle Nose Dolphins. When the dolphins are located, it's on with your mask and snorkel and you enter the water, swimming into their domain. This is truly an awesome experience and one you will never forget.
