The vessel is equipped with a rooftop viewing platform and plenty of viewing decks to enjoy uninterrupted views of the wildlife throughout the Queenscliff dolphin cruise. This is a wildlife encounter you'll remember forever. Head to Queenscliff Boat Harbour to join the dolphin cruise every day at 12pm.
