If you want the best experience ever then do this activity. Swimming with seals is incredible and amazing. The cost is worth every cent. The crew are fantastic and do a great job ensuring you have a safe and enjoyable experience. Well done guys. My kids loved it. This was our second time too.

I went out in a party of 22 ranging in age from 2 to 73 and we had a ball. There were four instructors and the driver for our group plus about a dozen other people. There were Finns, New Zealanders and Netherlanders as well as Australians. Everyone who wanted to go in the water was fitted with a wetsuit,... More

That experience was amazing. Swimming with seals and birds in a protected area, sailing with dolphins literally playing next to the boat (couldn't swim that time because there was a calf with its mum which was not very common apparently, so we were really lucky), chatting with Alicia and Nick who are great fun staff membres, full of knowledge about...

Hi Clement. Thank you for describing our tours so well, but I'm not sure if I would call it crazy, the staff are actually very professional. Seriously though it is a lot fun for everyone on the boat including the staff. Seeing baby dolphins is fantastic and shows that the environment in the bay must be reasonably healthy. Unfortunately we... More

We had a great time today with the crew and other international guests. Pretty cool experience on the nets and ropes with the dolphins swimming beside and below us. Loved the snorkelling around Pope's Eye. Saw Gannets and lots of Aussie seals. It was chilly but the tea and Mylo helped warm us up. Definitely a must do if you... More

Hello BadourBabe. Thank you for only giving us a score of 4 stars. Seriously. Everyone is going read your review because it stands out so much in a long list of perfect scores. But at least readers will now realize that the reviews are all genuine. The only negative you mentioned was the chilly weather and that's one of the... More

The Sea All Dolphin Swim boat may not have been the fanciest boat in the harbour but buoy did it deliver with a bit of help from.... four amazing crew members, a pod or two of dolphins, a boysterous bob of seals, warming wetsuits, snacks and one beautiful bay day. In a world where we are being conned into thinking... More

I went on the morning tour on Dec 30. After a week or two of being afraid of encountering sharks and almost opting not to swim because of this, I took the plunge, (literally), and am so glad I did. I felt totally safe the entire time, and had a wonderful morning. The highlight of my morning was getting to... More

This is a must do for visitors and locals alike. An easy drive from Melbourne Sea All Dolphin Swims is a unique experience. We had a pretty full boat and to be honest I thought it might be a bit crowded but it was a really slick operation, Captain Shamus, and his able crew - Dreadlock Mate, Salty Sea Dog,... More

Hi Swanny2016 You make our crew sound like the Muppets, I'm sure that they are just as entertaining but much more skilled. Its never disappointing when you see dolphins with very young babies, knowing that they are being well looked after by the the tour operators and free to to go where ever they want. Its always surprising how the... More

These guys are rated so highly for a reason, we have just had a great afternoon with the local seals and dolphins. We were really well looked after by all the staff, from the moment we arrived at their office in Queenscliffe, until we got off the boat. You don't feel for one minute you are just another tourist, and... More

Hello Chris. Thanks for your kind review. Its nice to read that you weren't treated like just another tourist. The main reason you aren't treated like that with us is because our staff really appreciate you guys giving them an excuse to go out on the boat, and its not about going out just for the pay. I'm sure they... More
