Seal Swim Adventure Tour
- Duration: 120 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Queenscliff
- Product code: SSAT
**SELECTED WEEKENDS AND SUMMER HOLIDAYS***
A MINIMUM OF 4 PARTICIPANTS IS REQUIRED FOR THE TOUR TO PROCEED
Due to the nature of Southern Port Phillip Bay seal adventure tours are only scheduled for early mornings, this is to provide our customers with the best experience possible as we find afternoons have characteristically higher wind speeds and choppier conditions.
Please note: There is a $10 environmental levy included as part of the price of this tour. This levy helps us help our oceans and will be put towards any of the following programs and research through our partnership charity SOEL (Southern Ocean Environmental Link):
- Plastic recycling education programs – funding will help us purchase more plastic recycling machinery for use within our recycling programs, facilitate our education sessions for school age children, and go toward community plastic reduction efforts.
- A Port Phillip Bay wide dolphin population study, utilising machine-based learning marine identification camera systems.
- Port Phillip Bay Seal Watch program – mapping the movement trends of Australian Fur Seals within Port Phillip Bay Haul Out sites.
- Marine pest (Northern Pacific Seastar) eradication study utilising machine-based learning identification systems.
- An investigation into the effects of ecotourism experiences on young people’s awareness and attitude toward marine conservation.
- We will also use these funds to invest in an accessibility hoist for Queenscliff Harbour, and in doing so create the first readily available accessibility point for marine tourism within Port Phillip Bay.
