My husband and I took this trip on Sunday 13 April, and right from the word go the staff were fantastic, friendly and knowledgable. The 5mm wetsuits kept us nice and warm, and we started off snorkelling at Popes Eye - we saw a great variety of fish, with beautiful colours and clear water on the shallow side of the... More

We are from Melbourne didn't even know it existed til recently. We swam with the wild dolphins and they came right up turned over and looked us in the face. Unbelivable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. 3 swims all excellent couldnt believe the number of colorful fish at the marine santuary. My daughter also loved the boom net.... More

Hi Kat Bin. Thanks for your review. There must be many Melburnians that don't realize just what a treasure the bay is to be living near. It would be great to show more of them around the highlights of the bay in the hope that they will go home with a deeper appreciation of the fragile marine environment that so... More

We did this on the last leg of our trip in Australia. There were 3 stops for us to jump into the water. The choppy sea conditions that day didn't help and we got queasy. For my 5 year old daughter, it was the most exciting thing she did on the trip and she totally enjoyed it. As for my... More

All of us had SO MUCH FUN! We got way more than we could ever expect for this money. We saw a pod of about 50 dolphins swimming right next to and underneath of us, along the boat, jumping around, spinning... just everywhere. Amazing! Definitely listen to the crew when they point out where the dolphins are as you would... More

Hey Ivan F. Did you really eat that worm in your photo? No wonder our donuts and sweets seemed so good. Thanks for such a great review. I heard about your tour with all the dolphins. The crew said it was one of the best this season. Never the less I'm not surprised that the highlight for you was the... More

We did this trip on Saturday 29th march in the morning. This was seriously the best day we've had in ages! I booked this trip as a surprise day out for my boyfriend and came with 4 other friends too. We swam with a huge pod of dolphins in the morning first and we just couldn't get over what an... More

Hello Sarah-Jane A Its often amusing for us to see the faces of those that come down as a surprise. Often totally unprepared and quite perplexed, no bathers, towels, or expectations and sometimes no breakfast. Usually ends up the best time ever and would probably not have gone had they known. The crew will make sure they soon settle in... More

Hi Sarah. Thanks for your review. I'm glad your visiting friends had a great time. I'll bet the the drive home swapping experiences was just as good as the tour itself. That's one of the bonus's that you receive when doing a tour with us. Memories that last for ever. But as you say there are many more that clients... More

I live locally but enjoy the opportunity to go out on a boat as a change from merely seeing the bay from the beach. I have enjoyed the trip to such a degree that I have been out 8 times this season. It provides a whole new perspective on the bay, seeing it from a boat. Every trip is different... More

Hello Eugene H. Isn't it always like that. You think you have to go to some faraway exotic place to see something special but often its right on your doorstep. So many locals come on our trips only because they want to show their international friends and relatives around. After the tour the most common response is, "I never knew... More

I went on the 4hour Dolphin Swim trip. Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins but despite this it was a great experience! I was on my own but there was a large party with quite a few children on board; the instructors, Lincoln and Fi were great, they made everyone feel very safe and included without being over-prescriptive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip in every way. The crew and captain are so enthusiastic it's as though they don't do this every day! They genuinely out to ensure that everyone has a great time.

Hi ellie 2727. Every tour is different for the skipper and crew. Not only does the environment change by the hour out on the bay but also each group passengers varies so much, whether they come from far corners of the world or from our neighborhood. What keep them so enthusiastic is the interaction with all the great passengers on... More

The whole experience can be summed up as unforgettable! Truly amazing! Whilst tricky to locate the site at first (road signs or lack of!
