We’re going snorkelling!! Come on home ed friends, let’s go and see the marine life including seals and dolphins.

We will meet at Sea All Dolphin Swims shop at 1:15 pm to fill out some paperwork and be outfitted with our gear – wetsuit, mask, snorkel, and flippers. Afterward we’ll walk to the boat and head out on our adventure.

Our half-day tour generally starts with a snorkel at Popes Eye (part of the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park). Its shallow and protected waters are teeming with colourful fish and marine life making it the ideal place to brush up on our snorkelling skills.

With our new found skills and a heightened sense of adventure we head off to Chinaman’s Hat, a local haul-out site that is a temporary home to 30-40 young Australian Fur Seals waiting to share their water world with us.

Just when you think port Phillip Bay couldn’t get better, we set off in search for the dolphins and usually find them not to far away. Swimming with dolphins is controlled by strict legislation (deservedly so!) and our patient instructors will ensure that both snorkellers and dolphins benefit from the experience.

Ages: 6 – 18 yo
Prices: Students $96 includes wetsuit, mask & snorkel, flippers, and instruction
Parents are allowed and encouraged to participate at the same price.

Bring your bathers and a towel. Lockers, showers, and toilets are available in the shop.

=======================================

Terms and Conditions
Refunds: We are unable to offer refunds for cancellations made less than 6 weeks before any event due to booking and paying for events so far in advance.

Age restrictions: Our outings are for school-age (6 – 18 yo) and the age levels for each outing will be indicated in the description of each outing. Some will be more restrictive than others as the needs of younger kids are different from older kids’ needs.

Adults in attendance: Our outings are intended to be for the home ed community and not family outings; therefore, we will be limiting the number of adults/parents attending from each family to one. This adult/parent is required to stay with the group for the entire outing. This has to do with liability, safety, and medical emergencies.

Photos: By purchasing a ticket, you are agreeing that we may use photos of you and/or your child(ren) in future advertising on our website and facebook page.

Children’s (and Adult’s) behaviour: We represent the entire home ed community when we are out in the community and may even be the first home schoolers this venue has dealt with; therefore, good manners are expected. Parents you are in charge and responsible for your children at all times. If your child behaves in an unruly manner, is disruptive, or otherwise inhibiting the enjoyment of the outing by others, you will be asked to remove them until they are calm, listening, and behaving properly. Adults displaying unbecoming behaviour will also be asked to leave and take your children with you.

Children with Special Needs: Please let us know at the time of booking of your child’s needs so we can communicate with the venue for accommodation.
