I booked my 19 & 15 year old girls for Sunday 31/1, the booking process was smooth and efficient, on the day as we arrived the winds changed and the swim was called off, Troy and his team were apologetic and offered us a refund or rebook and suggested things we could do and offered the Springs. Both my girls... More

We went on a morning tour on the 25th of Jan, and it was ripper! First stop was Chinaman's Hut. Was great getting to swim with seals, and we were given a really generous amount of time to swim around (probably 25 minutes) before getting called back, which was great. Amazing to see the seals up close, and definitely the... More

After several postponements due to us & weather, we hit the bay on Friday 15 Jan. It was overcast but otherwise good. The cruise was great. Skipper found a pod of 10 dolphins which we followed for 40 mins. On some occasions they swam within a metre of the boat. A fantastic day out. Next time I will take the... More

Highly recommend. We had the 90min dolphin / seal cruise. We took three of our children youngest one being 9. Within 15 mins we were watching a pod of 7 dolphins and did so for about 30 mins or more. The boats on the bay all keep in touch with each other and monitor whereabouts of dolphins so before the... More

The day was great and ideal for Dolphin and Seal sighting. We took the cruise were we sighted plenty of dolphins and seals from the boat. I believe we were quite lucky to have such terrific encounters. Our tour guide from Moonraker's was quite good and informative as well. Much recommended tour. Better do a early morning tour in holiday... More

After searching for a wildlife experience to do on our visit from Canada, we came across the Moonraker dolphin swim website. It sounded like a dream come true and we signed up immediately - $150 each. After a 2.5 hour drive from Melbourne to Sorrento (traffic was TERRIBLE and there was no parking to be found, very busy) we found... More

I booked package this 1 and 1/2 tour through Our Deal. Although it did not include swimming with the dolphins we still got to see them. Highlight was getting up close to the seals on Chinamans Hat and Popes Eye Marine Park where a colony of Australasian Gannets roost. The 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Money and time... More
