Food glorious food! SEAROAD Ferries carries more than 800,000 people across Port Phillip Bay every year, but did you know that it also offers some amazing food experiences on board its vessels? In-house chefs fill the menu offerings with local produce, wine, beers and spirits from the two bountiful food and wine regions of Mornington and The Bellarine Peninsulas. Dining is relaxed and scenic as guests sit back and enjoy the magnificent surrounds of the bay, sail past clifftop mansions and historic fortifications. Searoad Ferries offers a range of regular food experiences and some one-off gourmet events as well. Sunday Brunch, specialty high teas and Captain’s lunch are three highlights. Who doesn’t love a good Sunday brunch? Expect a lavish two-tiered spread of assorted

pastries, quiches, finger sandwiches and scones during this indulgent brunch departing Sundays from both Sorrento and Queenscliff at11am. There is even a special vegan brunch and bottomless brunch (where the cocktails are bottomless). High Tea on the High Seas is great fun throughout the year with various themes including a Chocolate twist for Easter, Gin High Tea and a bottomless sparkling wine version in May to celebrate Mother’s Day. The Bloke’s High Tea for Father’s Day is great fun and includes a specially created menu of sliders, pies and a paddle of beer for dad from breweries on both sides of the bay. More at:
