Swim with Wild Dolphins
Have you ever dreamed of swimming with wild dolphins?
Experience it today with Australia’s original and multi award winning wild dolphin specialists. With over 20 years of experience, friendship and trust built up with the local dolphins, we offer visitors a unique opportunity to interact with these fascinating creatures in their natural environment. You may see mothers nursing calves, discover how they use stingrays to catch their dinner or watch the boys showing off for the ladies. It’s the ultimate wildlife encounter!
Swim with Wild Dolphins(allow 3-6 hours + transfers)
Your adventure begins with cruising Rockingham’s sheltered bays and islands in search of any of the 180 local dolphins that your crew have come to know as friends. Before long the first dolphin sighting of the day is marked by the excited shout of ‘Found them!’ followed by the slowing down of our engines to let the dolphins know we are keen to play!
An excited buzz takes over the boat as the crew ensures you’re fully prepared to enter the water. ‘Zip your wetsuits up, masks and snorkels on and make your way to the swim deck- it’s time to get wet!’ Sleek, silvery grey dorsal fins start breaking the surface of the water within metres of the back of the boat and the skipper gives the command everyone’s been waiting for- ‘Go!’
Suddenly, you are surrounded by flashing grey torpedoes and the water is filled with whistles, splashes and laughter- both human and dolphin. They don’t do tricks and we don’t feed them, we simply spend some time enjoying each other’s company....it’s a wild encounter!
We are dedicated to ensuring the best experience for both visitors and dolphins. We ask you to remember that we are working with wild animals. Please approach each encounter with caution and respect and never assume that we have control over the dolphins’ appearance or behaviours. The dolphins approval of our friendship is reflected in our better than 99% success rate. You don’t have to be an expert swimmer to join in and no previous snorkelling experience is necessary. Just bring a sense of adventure and be ready for an unforgettable, exhilarating encounter!

Is This Tour Suitable For Me?
You don't have to be an Olympic swimmer to join in and no previous snorkelling experience is required (although it is helpful)! Our professional and friendly crew conducts introductory snorkelling lessons and have an excellent track record of helping nervous/ less experienced swimmers through the experience.
The tour is not recommended for children 6 years or younger unless the child has previous ocean experience and the parent is confident in their ability.
For more information click on Frequently Asked Questions.
We also have a 90 minute Dolphin Watch Adventure Cruise that takes visitors out to watch the dolphins before concluding on Penguin Island in time for the penguin feeding. It’s perfect for families and those who would prefer to enjoy the dolphins from the comfort of the boat. Please contact us to discuss any questions.
