Witnessing dolphins and seals playing in their natural environment is so often a life-enhancing experience. And you don’t have to travel far! You can make friends with these intelligent mammals just a short distance from Melbourne, at the picturesque seaside village of Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula.
Your adventure begins with a safety briefing on board the boat, followed by the journey out to the on the beautiful southern waters of Port Phillip Bay. See wild bottlenose dolphins, explore the southern reaches of Port Phillip and enjoy the playful fur seals. Highly trained and experienced crew introduce you to the rich diversity with an emphasis on safety and environmental awareness.
Open water vistas unfold as Victoria’s richly woven early white history and the fortifications protecting the early settlement are explained. This truly is the marine adventure of a lifetime.
Dolphins are wild animals and interactions cannot be guaranteed on every occasion. We use a multi-award winning eco tourism business that embraces sustainability principles.
Passenger safety and the dolphins' protection are of paramount importance, and so we purposely limit the size of our trips to guarantee a high standard of customer and environmental care. Our on-board facilities include a galley for serving refreshments, change areas and toilet. Seals and other wildlife is often encountered on the day.
Our season is from October to April inclusively, trips depart at 8:00am and 12:00pm. The boat trip will last approximately three (3) hours!
Numbers on the boat are strictly limited to make the experience more enjoyable.
Thank you so much for having us, we had the best time!
The staff on the boat Polperro were fantastic - Extremely knowledgeable, friendly & approachable. One of the best things that amazed me they remembered everyone's name for the whole trip ... The only unfortunate thing was the Dolphins went hiding but saw some awesome fur seal action.... We'll be back :-)
We found Jess to be friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. All the crew made the day enjoyable and were very pleasant. The dolphins and seals were a delight. Loved those scones, would love the recipe.
The crew on the day were fabulous and really made the trip a great experience. thank you :)
The crew made the day even better with their extremely friendly and helpfull attitude. I highly recommend this tour to everyone who enjoys a day on the bay.
This cruise was just perfect and we intend returning with the whole family when the weather is more clement .
I think we should have been advised of the lack of parking near the pier. Luckily we had plenty of time spare but as it was a long weekend there was no parking for about a km from the pier. For people who were running late this would be a huge problem.
Fantastic experience .Lovely people working on the boat.It felt homely and relaxing.Would do it again:)
Already referred to 2 friends! Thanks.
All the team on the Polperro were fantastic and although we were not diving with the other guests they still had time to talk with us about the animals and the area we were visiting. We got a little lost on the way in but the details provided by Adrenalin with phone numbers were very helpful and the kind people answering were also very helpful and got us there in good time. This was a fantastic trip and we would recommend using Adrenalin in the future as the booking process was a breeze. Thank you for a great day!!!!!
