We did the 3 hour fur seal and dolphin cruise with Moonrakers which included an opportunity to swim with the seals and dolphins. This was an amazing trip. When we arrived the crew members measured us up for our wet sets and flippers ensuring that we had the right size (They were damp from the last cruise and a bit... More

Everything was great! The staff, boat, food, sight seeing, the dolphins. Swimming with the seals was my favourite part. Great day! Felt very safe.I Have been before and this time brought my 69 year old father and teenage nephews. We all had a wonderful time and made great memories that will last forever.

I've been there for a couple times. I took my 7years old brother there and he loved it and enjoyed it! I will definitely take my kids there when I have kids! Thank you for the great experience!

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.
