From the second we arrived staff were friendly and very accommodating as I had no experience snorkelling let alone ocean swimming. Good vibes and positive attitude ensured a positive experience on the boat. The activities - seeing seals, searching for a rare sea dragon and swimming with dolphins (!!!) all made for a trip which was exciting for every second.... More

They told us, that we have a good chance to see dolphins, even though it was a rainy day. I learnt later, that dolphins don´t like the rain and usually don´t show up. I asked several times, if the weather was good for seeing dolphins before I booked, but they just lie right into your face. I was also concerned... More

Hi Sharon. Thanks for your review of yesterdays tour. Apparently it was a bit rough and cold when you went out so you must realize just how well you did learning to snorkel in those conditions.

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

Dear Mr AKUBRA: Understandably you must have been extremely disappointed to write a review like this, but I assure you that our staff would have been equally as disappointed as you because they weren't going out on tours during that period. Apart from it affecting their income they really do love being out on the bay and sharing the excitement... More

Booked a Swimming with Dolphins trip in early January as a christmas gift for my 12 year old sister and brother. Neither of us are confident swimmers but this was a terrific experience. The wetsuits provided were quite buoyant and the instructors were extremely helpful. We went during the early morning session and were lucky to see a lot of... 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.
