Sea Kayak Tour - Dolphin Sanctuary


Sea Kayaking is the ultimate way to explore the pristine coastline of the Southern Mornington Peninsula.

The fun, healthy, eco-friendly and quiet vessels give you the ultimate opportunity to encounter dolphins, seals & penguins up close as you paddle around the picturesque Point Nepean National Park! This is the perfect tour for those with a sense of adventure and interest in nature.

Our experienced Kayak Guides will take you past the Ticonderoga Bay Dolphin Sanctuary Zone, which is a refuge for dolphins and a significant component of their habitat, and the picturesque Point Nepean National Park.

Port Phillip Bay is home to a population of around 80 bottlenose dolphins. These mammals rely almost entirely on the bay for all their daily needs. They rarely, if ever, venture outside its waters. The small population size makes these dolphins vulnerable to extinction.

Marine mammals are given special protection under law in protected areas including the Ticonderoga Bay sanctuary zone, located north-west of Portsea near Point Nepean, is a refuge for the dolphins and is a significant component of the dolphins’ habitat. Dolphins often feed, rest and socialise in this area due to the availability of food and its protected nature.
