We were in Queenscliff for 4 days during April. These tours were not available mid week. Trip Advisor requires a minimum of 100 characters, but when an attraction is not available, there's not much one can say !! Maybe Queenscliff needs to look closely at who their visitors are ... We saw two "Probus Club" groups whole staying there ....... More

Hello Joson J. Sounds like you went out on one of those special mornings that the crew talk about. It doesn't get a whole lot better than sharing an adventure with friends and family out on the bay early while its quite and calm and there is all that activity of the dolphins, seals, birds and fish happening all around....

We had a fantastic time swimming and snorkelling in the Bay. The staff create a warm, relaxed and fun atmosphere on the boat for everyone, including anxious older women like us. We swam at several different places and Willow and Lincoln and Nicky, the resident expert on dolphins, were fantastic guides. We spotted dolphins but they weren't in the mood... More

We had a wonderful experience of snorkeling and swimming with seals. Special thanks to Mr. Hank. Though we had no prior swimming experience, he has made our trip awesome by guiding us with snorkeling and swimming. He is very cheerful and enthusiastic. We are eagerly waiting for another trip with 'Sea All Dolphin Swims'.

Hi Murkak. I had such a good time with your group on the tour I should be thanking you. When I think back you guys were so brave going into the water without any swimming experience. One of the group even jumped off the roof of the boat at the end of the tour That really was awesome. I hope... More

The Sea All Dolphin experience is amazing for students. Snorkelling, swimming with seals and dolphins and education about protection of coastal landscapes and marine animals, all whilst challenging themselves to take up new experiences that are far out of some of their comfort zones. The team is excellent and prepared to deal with students with a wide range of swimming... More

Hi Kecarm. Thanks for your review. Schools have been substantial part of our business since we started 17 years ago and some school have been coming on our tours almost since we started. Over the years we've seen some remarkable attitude changes on the tour in some of the more challenging students. Just getting into a wetsuit for some is... More

Hi Cade A. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. From your photo it looks like you had fantastic conditions and its great to read that the dolphins came in close to the snorkelers.

Howdy Steve. Thanks for your great review.
