Hi Rachael. Freshly harvested and steamed wild mussels for free on a tour to swim with wild dolphins and seals and you only score 8:10. Your such a tough judge! But we're just chuffed that you chose our tour over your previous employers. Seriously though. It was a pleasure to take you and your in laws out and I'm sure... More

Our small group from Sydney took a taxi from North Melbourne to Queenscliff during the 2014 New Years holiday to visit this tour and made for an adventure of a lifetime! It was a highlight of Victoria, it made for an amazing experience that I'd never leave Victoria without doing again! I recommend doing it to everybody!

Hello Paulsnews. Thanks for writing this review. I remember it was a pretty hectic trip down the highway in the taxi for you and I wouldn't recommend that form of transport. But its great hear your group had such a great adventure and maybe it was worth it after all. Regards Hank. More

Sea All Dolphin Swims really know how to give you a great day. They are extremely professional and I really enjoyed my day and really couldn't have asked for anything more from them. If you have never done this trip, I highly suggest you go as you'll be in for a day you'll never forget.
