What a fun trip, we were loaded on very professionally, then upstairs for a wine on the deck, the views are spectacular, a pod of dolphins surfed along side us, so much better than driving to Queenscliff through the city. Well worth the money.

A quick an interesting way to skip the Melbourne trip. Dolphins too! It was very efficient but the staff really need to lighten up a bit. A welcoming smile goes a long way.

This is a great way to cross the bay from Sorrento to queenscliff and back. The ferry is very comfortable with a range of seating options, and a bar and cafe. The journey is pleasant with lovely views and some wildlife sightings if youre lucky!

Thank you for your great review. The ferries have lots of space, plenty of seating and huge picture windows to take in the views. Dolphin spotting is optional! See you sailing with us again soon. Regards, Leanne
