‘Entertain greatly and educate gently’

Polperro Dolphin Swims seeks to promote environmentally responsible behaviour towards Port Phillip Bay’s marine environment and its’ dolphin and seal populations by embracing an operating philosophy of conservation through education and interpretation.

Students from primary to tertiary level can immerse themselves in the natural wonders on offer. Real-life experience combined with quality interpretation delivered by our qualified and experienced staff allows participants to look beneath the surface and gain a fuller understanding of the ecology, geography and history of Port Phillip Bay as well as meeting and getting to know its’ dolphin and seal populations.

Tours and interpretation can be tailored to suit desired learning outcomes and we ensure tours are accessible to learning institutions by subsidising costs. Safe and fun-filled on the water activities can be matched to VELS, curriculum standards and learning outcomes. VCAL students may satisfy the needs of their courses by participating in the AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety qualification offered by our qualified trainer.

School camps can be endowed with a variety of activities from the rich palette of offerings – land-based, in water, on-water, marine and terrestrial.

Polperro embraces ‘kids teaching kids’ programs, works closely with Zoos Victoria on Seal the Loop litter programs and conducts field trips for the Eco Centre St Kilda on marine litter programs.

Polperro Dolphin Swims has earned a reputation as a premier provider of marine education built on 25 years of service in the field. Challenge students and teachers alike with real-world conservation issues and empower them to become involved in making a difference.
