We had the best day out today. Our tour was wonderful. The staff great. We had a fantastic snorkeling experience, swam with seals, saw dolphins (sadly no swimming today), ate freshly steamed muscles, used the duck board to splash along behind the boat, we jumped from the roof into the ocean; what fantastic experiences for the kids and adults alike!!...

Hi Fiona_Oz What your review highlights is that both kids and adults enjoy the experience at the same level, Hmm, maybe not the steamed mussels, but definitely all the activities. Its amazing how quickly the kids gain confidence in the water and how that sometimes challenges the adults to do things that wouldn't expect to be doing. Its all great... More

Rarely have I paid for an "attraction" that doesn't fully deliver on how it is marketed and still want to write a positive review. On the day, we had the best snorkelling experience in Victoria, swimming at Popes Eye and swimming with the Sea Lions. We found the dolphins and saw them up close, but the dolphins weren't interested in... More

Hello Grumpy academic. I'm counting this as one of our best reviews ever considering your policy on reviews. Lately we're experiencing some tours where the dolphins are just not interested and some where we don't see them at all. Its disappointing for our staff as much as the passengers. There are those who prefer the seal swim anyway and for... More

I spent three weeks on holiday in Australia and this was easily the highlight. My son, who is not normally much of a talker, said it was the best day of his life. We were, I think, pretty lucky. We got to snorkel around a little reef, with seabirds and fish, which was a good gentle introduction. We had invested... More

Hi Rachael. Freshly harvested and steamed wild mussels for free on a tour to swim with wild dolphins and seals and you only score 8:10. Your such a tough judge!

Our small group from Sydney took a taxi from North Melbourne to Queenscliff during the 2014 New Years holiday to visit this tour and made for an adventure of a lifetime! It was a highlight of Victoria, it made for an amazing experience that I'd never leave Victoria without doing again! I recommend doing it to everybody!

Hello Paulsnews. Thanks for writing this review. I remember it was a pretty hectic trip down the highway in the taxi for you and I wouldn't recommend that form of transport. But its great hear your group had such a great adventure and maybe it was worth it after all. Regards Hank. More

Sea All Dolphin Swims really know how to give you a great day. They are extremely professional and I really enjoyed my day and really couldn't have asked for anything more from them. If you have never done this trip, I highly suggest you go as you'll be in for a day you'll never forget.
