Full description
Your tour commences with an introductory on-board safety briefing, before cruising past the amazing cliff top mansions out into the sheltered shallows of Port Phillip Bay. With your family or friends, you will head off to Chinaman's Hat, a local spot where the ever-curious Australian fur seals are waiting to show off their way of life. From Chinaman's Hat, cruise over to Popes Eye at the Marine National Park for a look at the Australasian gannets, where your guides will share with you some interesting and educational facts about these amazing birds. From there, you'll cruise the magnificent Port Phillip Bay in search of the inspiring bottle nosed dolphins. There is no need to jump into the water; the captain's technique will place you right next to the action where you will receive a fantastic view into the world of the dolphins and seals. At the conclusion of your guided insight into Australia's flora and fauna, you will be returned to your point of origin.

Great afternoon out on the bay with friendly staff on a comfortable boat. We were fortunate to have perfect weather conditions and we got to see plenty of dolphins up close.

Didn't get to see the dolphins. At the end of trip when we asked the crew, its then they said that in morning we swam and we couldn't see them either. They are in deep water today. If this is the case, try should've told at the start of trip.
