We have lived on the Mornington Peninsula for 14 years and have always intended to swim with the Dolphins and Seals. Finally we committed and are so impressed by the memorable experience! Firstly the Dolphins and Seals seem like they are putting on a show for us...you get the feeling that they are as curious of us, as we are... More

We arrived at Sorrento Pier in plenty of time after taking the car ferry from Queenscliff to Sorrento. Everyone was supported with Wetsuits and fins. And was supported onto the boat. The negative part of this trip was that other guests on the trip really do ruin your once in a life chance for most people experience with trying to... More

We took our 7 year old daughter and her 7 year old friend they both had a really good time. For the kids most of the excitement was from getting gear on, riding on a boat, dolphins swimming so close to the boat, the seals, hot Milo on the boat, and talking to the crew. However the girls were both... More

From the day I booked our tickets, these guys have been nothing short of amazing, polite and kind. Even when the weather wasn't in our favour, they allowed us to reschedule in order to make it as safe and as enjoyable for us, free of charge. On the day we did go, the staff were incredible. They had an unlimited... More

For a short cruise it really packed a lot in! I am from QLD and used to much warmer weather and the water was absolutely freezing!! If I was just at the beach I wouldn't have even put my feet in the water but this day was so exciting to get so close to these animals in the wild that... More

Booked the 3 hr dolphin/seal swim on line and every part of this trip was fantastic. On the surface Moonraker seem laid back and casual but that couldn't be further from the truth. The whole crew on Moonraker are very experienced, professional and intent on ensuring that all aspects of water and onboard safety are paid attention to while at... More

Our dolphin swim yesterday (R91FUNX) was one of the most glorious days of my life! We saw bundles of marine life and our tour guide Nat was so great. We had a small group and we couldn't have asked for a better day! Swimming around with the seals and dolphins was certainly an experience I'll never forget- highly recommend!
