To swim with dolphins and seals at Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula is to feel earth's greatest moments. In their natural habitat, south of Melbourne, you can watch these creatures, hear them, and delight in them. The resident dolphins and seals of Port Phillip Bay can't wait to meet you!

  • Snorkelling equipment
  • Wetsuits
  • Refreshments
  • Guided activities
  • Optional presentations from qualified naturalists
  • 3 hours of boating fun

Cruising the sheltered shallows of Port Phillip Bay embarking on a once in a lifetime experience. Meet the Australian Fur Seals where the clear shallow waters surrounding the boat are full of friendly, fun and inquisitive seals. See the giant smooth rays glide beneath whilst juvenile seals dart back and forth eager to swim and dive with you. Enter the watery world of the Weedy Sea Dragon, the famous and rare state marine emblem for Victoria. Here you can experience these extraordinary prehistoric creatures up close and in their natural environment. Rest up onboard with a delicious hot chocolate and a freshly baked muffin whilst we search for the resident bottlenose dolphins, once a pod is located our guides will observe and explain what the pod is doing and how our swim will take place. Every encounter is unique and we work with the animals to ensure we can have the best encounter without impacting on their lives and behaviour.

In a small group of 10, we slide quietly into the water, floating on the surface watching and waiting for the squeaks and whistles to get louder and louder as the dolphins come from all around to see us and swim beneath our group. You can observe families of resident dolphins within a pod, watch mothers train the next generation to hunt and socialise, listening to the amazing sounds as they communicate with each other excitedly.

We offer the comfort and luxury of custom-built boats, with hot showers, café and a variety of outdoor spaces ideal for viewing the spectacular coastline and wildlife of Port Phillip Bay. The Moonraker is safe, comfortable and gentle on the environment due to its fuel efficient, low emission and quiet operation.
