What to Expect

Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming with Port Phillip Bay’s dolphins!


The cruise commences in the morning with a welcome tea or coffee, after which you'll travel to the sheltered shallows of Port Phillip Bay to embark on an exciting wildlife adventure!


Every swim is unique!


Once the dolphins are located on the boat, the tour divides into groups of 10 and prepares to enter the water. You'll float on the surface of the water as your guides try to entice the dolphins to spend time with the group. The dolphins may swim beneath you or in a circle around you, showing off their amazing abilities. Time spent with the dolphins varies as they are completely wild and the interactions are on the animals’ terms.


You'll also get to meet the friendly, fun, and inquisitive Australian fur seals at Chinaman's Hat, where the clear shallow waters surround the boat. Look out for the giant smooth rays that glide on the seafloor. Try to spot the Weedy Seadragon, the famous and rare state marine emblem of Victoria.

Every encounter on this tour is totally different. Being wild and free, the dolphins aren’t always located on every cruise. This is part of the experience of seeking an encounter with wild animals
