This snorkel tour includes two prime locations: Popes Eye Marina Park and Chinaman's Hat. 

Popes Eye was originally designed as foundation of a fort system to protect Port Phillip Bay and Melbourne. This man made structure was built from mined basalt rocks in the 1800's. Acclaimed as the world's smallest marine park and Australia's oldest at over 30 years, Popes Eye is the ideal location for a snorkel adventure. 

Chinaman's Hat, "Port Phillip Bay's Premier Bachelor Pad", is a custom built structure for the Australasian Fur Seals residing in the bay. Designed specifically, the structure provides an ideal lazing pad for the big browned-eyed seals. Seals are the Labradors of the sea and enjoy playing and mimicking snorkelers in the water. They love attention: the more they receive, the more playful they will be. Imitating a seal with result in the seal showing off their true grace and fluidity in the water, diving down, spiraling around and even splashing up out of the water.
