Things to do

Dolphin and Seal Sightsee Tour

Experience a 1/2 day activity swimming with wild seals and dolphins! Experience snorkelling alongside friendly fur seals and watch wild dolphins swim freely around you. The adventure begins at Sorrento Pier where snorkelling equipment is collected. Step aboard the luxury tour boat and experience a magical three-hour adventure. The cruise commences with an introductory on-board snorkel demonstration, after which the vessel travels out into the sheltered shallows of Port Phillip Bay viewing the pristine coastline and cliff top mansions. After arriving at Chinaman's Hat you can put your newfound skills into action swimming with the friendly fur seals. From Chinaman's Hat, the tour continues to the 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 as you enter the water, swimming into their domain. A truly magical experience that you will never forget.
