Mr. Josh F

I was so surprised at the colour and diversity of fish and coral. It was a beautiful day on the bay! and took 15 min to arrive at the dive site, which means more time in the water! Thanks guys and gals

Really good!

We had a really nice experience. We were a bit to late and they where were waiting for us. For this price, I definitely would recommend it to everyone. We had really good guide and we swim next to the sea seals. You snorkel 2 times, one by a little island and other one by the seals. This is one of the only boats that is aloud to come so close to the animals, so no other tourists!!! Really nice :)

Amazing Tour & Exceptional Value for Money

This is going to sound like a paid advert but we had the most Amazing Day cruising Port Phillip Bay, swimming with our Seal friends and visiting South Fort! The crew couldn't do enough for us, kept us well fed and the boat was perfect for diving from. I normally hesitate making recommendations but I cannot recommend this tour highly enough! Our family will certainly be back...thank you!

Unorganised.

+ people were kind + boat was nice + cheap - unorganised - worst communication ever - left us without any information waiting - snorkeled only once instead of twice - couldnt swim with seals (because of the weather) but we realized that when we went back into the harbour. No one cared about explaining us anything. No one was sorry

Jasper, I'm unsure what has warranted your one star review if the boat, staff and price were to your liking. We can, even in a modern world only predict the weather conditions to a point. I was personally on the vessel that day and we had two changes of wind direction and strength and can not apologise for stopping water activities when they are unsafe. A much better communication approach would be to contact me directly to see if I could have found a day with better conditions to take you back out into the bay. I'm would like to assure anyone reading this of the fact we will always on the day make only safe and sensible calls for you and your family's. And will change destinations and activity's to suit you safety and needs. Joel

Fantastic Day

Went with my three teenage children water was cold but it didn't matter the day was amazing seals and rays. The crew were friendly and so encouraging my son got cold so the dive instructor gave him his hood and gloves. 😄
