We took the 1.5 hour Adventure Cruise as a present for our son's birthday. The cruise was pleasant and with many explanations. However, while we saw Fur Seals- we did not see ANY dolphins (which was the reason we took the tour in the first place) and the kids were very disappointed. I don't think it's fair to state on...

Amazing experience not only with the swim itself, but with super lovely crew. As a Melbourne local this is a real hidden treasure - seeing the bay from this angle was really special.

We went out on Port Phillip bay with Moonraker Charters leaving Sorrento pier on time & seeing dolphins within 5 minutes. It was as though it was all arranged with 4 dolphins swimming around & under our boat. We proceeded futher down towards Portsea with the captain telling us about the history of the area, and finally reaching the entrance... More

The cruise was amazing, we saw resident wild dolphins around us, wild fur seals just meters away! In addition, we learned about the history, environment and wild life here in Port Phillip Bay. It is Australian Tourism Award Silver Winner. You will not be disappointed. We will be back again!

What a terrible experience this company gave us! Promised the world but delivered nothing. Don't be fooled by the websites promise of swimming with the Dolphins as this isn't the case, it should say if you see the Dolphins in the distance we get to keep your money! The promise of lunch...... That was a joke clearly no food handlers... More

Hi Jetthuddy, Thanks for your interesting review. We offer one of the most amazing experience, to encounter wild animals in their natural environment, this is inline with our advertising and something we delivered. Your cruise departed Sorrento Pier and located dolphins off Point King, (not far from the Pier) As explained the Dolphins usually travel against the tide so we... More

Easy to organise outing for a well deserving group of people! Attended a 2Hr exclusive boat cruise upon the Bronze Wing with Fish n Chips and everything was perfect. Boat was super comfy and accommodating for the unpredictable weather conditions. Fish and chips were amazing and delivered HOT to the boat, whilst sighting dolphins were aplenty! Crew were very knowledgeable... More

We are from bayside Melbourne and had an amazing day on the 3 hour adventure. Swimming with the dolphins and seals was an experience to remember and the crew were helpful and very friendly! We would recommend this to anyone with good swimming abilities.

Went out on the 1.00pm dolphin and seal swim on 20th March. We had a 17 year old and a 12 year old with us. We were all fitted with wet suits and flippers - the staff were good about checking that everything felt comfortable and happy to change flippers etc until the right size was identified. The boat was... More

We did the dolphin and seal viewing cruise and thoroughly enjoying ourselves. It was comfortable and managed well. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. Good value for money, especially as we used a groupon!
