Our favourite trip, this journey takes in the very best of Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne’s major body of water. ‘The Bay’ covers the area the size of central London and is a rich and biodiverse marine environment which provides a home to dolphins, the Australian Fur Seal, a wide variety of fish and the famous Little Penguin.
Circumnavigating almost 225km of coast line, we visit coastal beaches, seaside towns and points of historical importance. This journey involves a journey across Australia’s famous ‘Rip’ aboard the Queenscliff to Sorrento ferry service, the dangerous passage of water has taken many shipwrecks. Port Phillip was an important area for indigenous tribes and it was through its heads that European settlers first made their journey towards what is now Melbourne. Keep a look out for dolphins and seals as they playfully follow us.
This really is a fantastic way to experience a complete circuit of our bay and discover some of the beautiful off the beaten track jewels.
The colder months provide breathtaking panoramas and crisp beach walks whilst the warmer seasons offer some of the fine opportunities to immerse yourself in crystal clear water.
