Full description
Your half-day tour starts with a snorkel at Popes Eye at the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park. Hone your snorkeling skills in its calm, shallow waters and swim with colorful fish. 

After your confidence boost, take your snorkeling up a level to Chinaman’s Hat. Get to know the locals, around 40 young Australian fur seals, and explore their habitat with them.

Continue to navigate the bay in search of dolphins. In keeping with regulations and respecting these elegant creatures, your instructor will ensure that both dolphins and snorkelers have a fun and safe experience.

As you sail from spot to spot, keep lookout from the boat's rooftop viewing platform and watch the seals and dolphins at play. Relax in a hammock and listen to the expert crew as they describe and point out the remarkable marine wildlife. 

To make the most of your day on the Bellarine Peninsula, opt for the round-trip transfer options from Geelong Station. Take the hassle out of navigating public transportation and relax on your ride in a tour bus to and from the national park.

Suitable for all ages, sizes, and abilities, this swimming with dolphins experience is a perfect group activity for families or friends. Choose the snorkeling option for a thrill or the sightseeing option to just come along for the ride. 

After your half-day snorkeling adventure is over, you will also have a few hours to explore the town, sample the local produce at the gourmet restaurants, and relax at one of the many beaches and parks which are within walking distance.
