THE SWIM WITH WILD DOLPHINS EXPERIENCE
The adventure begins with cruising Rockingham's sheltered bays and islands in search of any of over 200 local dolphins that your crew have come to know as friends. Before long the skipper spots the first group of the day and 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.

The Swim with Wild Dolphins tour is popular with people of all ages. You don't have to be a great swimmer to join in and no previous snorkeling experience is required- although it is helpful! Our crew conduct snorkelling lessons and have an excellent track record of helping nervous/ less experienced swimmers through the encounter using aqua scooters to tow amongst the action.

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.
Tours depart daily from September 1 to June 1.
Closed June, July, and August for Winter and December 25th for Christmas.
