Step out on deck, watch the big ships cruise by and you may see playful dolphins surfing around in the ferry’s bow waves.
In winter, whale sightings are possible, as these mammoth creatures search for food during their annual migration. In summer, enjoy the sun as yachts swoop across the bay.
Watch out for the pope’s Eye, a semi circle of basalt rock once intended for a never-completed fortress. It’s now one of the bay’s best dive and snorkelling sites.
The Mud Islands are also part of the Port Phillip Heads Marine Nation Park and are home to around 70 species of seabirds.
Our purpose built all-weather ferries ensure the trip is comfortable in all weather, 365 days a year!
Sorrento and Queenscliff
Sorrento and Queenscliff are seaside villages with very different personalities, so do explore both.
Sorrento, the site of Victoria’s first European settlement in 1803, has charming 19th century limestone buildings, smart boutiques and delectable food stores and cafes. The foreshore is shaded by huge Norfolk Pines, and the pier is abuzz with aquatic activities.
Queenscliff is restrained and elegant, with beautifully preserved Victorian hotels and guesthouses, old churches, little fishermen’s cottages, the huge 1860′s Fort Queenscliff, art galleries, shops, and excellent cafes and restaurants.
