What people are saying about Mornington Peninsula

Absolutely wonderful sooo relaxing. Will go again for sure. Staff perfect friendly and unobtrusive. Had the picnic what a treat that was. Fresh salads, vaiety of cut fruit, yoghurt and chai pudding with berries. Handful of nuts and bliss balls. Cheese and biscuits to boot. Right size portions so nothing was wasted. Thank you to the thoughtful person who was in charge if that. We will highly recommend to others. Wen & Rob

Really great experience, even with choppy, cold water. Exciting to see the seals up close and getting the opportunity to see a big stingray. Experienced and professional crew, and well allotted on board Cafe. My only complaint would be that there was no signage or directions when we arrived and, although the invitation specified arriving early, we left late.

The Staff were so nice and helpful when answering questions, the constructor Carl tried so hard to find sea dragons and found some and made sure everyone got the chance to see it, the tour was amazing would definitely recommend
