We had a great day out on the boat today with the crew Rory and Simon. Very informative, interesting and entertaining tour. Fortunate enough to see many many Dolphins and seals! We had no idea it would be so plentiful! We are from Melbourne and have been to Sorrento many times, but never like this. Highly recommended & must see... More

I and my 3 kidlets (11, 9, 7) did the Moonraker Dolphin Sightseeing tour this afternoon, and the entire experience was just wonderful. Sandy and Troy from the office were incredible to deal with, and extremely helpful and professional, and the boat looked absolutely brand new, with a fun, and insightful skipper (Rory - he's worked and lived around the...

We joined Moonraker dolphin swims on a sightseeing tour. Due to the weather, our tour was cancelled twice, but the staff was very accommodating and we were able to reschedule without any hassle. Whilst the tour was designed for the swimmers, we were able to see the seals up close. The kids enjoyed spotting for dolphins and by the time... More

We enjoyed a wonderful excursion on Tuesday 20/1. Although we didn't see dolphins (sad face) I just loved meeting the seals and looking into their big brown eyes above their whiskers, and the kelp beds at the Marine Park were stunning. The staff were brilliant - friendly, helpful and full of information. I learned some interesting new facts today -... More

We took the Moonraker dolphin swim from Sorrento Pier and the experience was generally positive. It was let down somewhat by the lack of dolphins and the cold weather, but the crew did their best to give us a good time. They were professional, informative and worked hard to make sure that everyone was happy and safe. They also provided... More

I drove down to Sorrento on 7 Jan 2015. I parked on the left of the jetty, along the beach, probably around 8:15am. Weekday and despite being a school holiday, there was plenty of parking. The parking meters are gone though, with options to go buy tickets from the jetty or use an online app (I used this and I... More

The tour is separated into three stops. First stop: Dolphin swim: the boat stops at different places and groups of 10 persons each, enter with a guide the... More
