Swim with Wild Dolphins

Have you ever dreamed of swimming with wild dolphins? With over 25 years of experience, friendship and trust built up with the local dolphins, we offer visitors a unique opportunity to interact with these fascinating creatures!

Highlights

  • 3 to 6 hour cruise on our luxury, custom built boat (toilets and showers onboard)
  • Full length wetsuits, mask and snorkel & snorkeling lessons
  • Our wild dolphin guarantee! If we don't swim with dolphins on your cruise, you can come again for free.
  • Expert guides riding underwater scooters to get you up close and personal with the dolphins
  • Light lunch and refreshments served onboard
  • Self serve tea, coffee, hot chocolate & fresh water.

Your 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, sleek, silvery grey dorsal fins start breaking the surface of the water within metres of the back of the boat and it's time to zip your wetsuit up, put your mask and snorkel on and get ready to take the plunge! Our friendly guides will get you seated comfortably, ready to go, on the swim deck. They'll be joining you in the water to ensure you make the most of your wild dolphin encounter. Once the boat is in the right position, the skipper gives the command that 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 behaviors. 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 snorkeling experience is necessary. Our professional and friendly crew conducts introductory snorkeling lessons and have an excellent track record of helping nervous or less experienced swimmers through the experience. Just bring a sense of adventure and be ready for an unforgettable, exhilarating encounter!

Swim with the Dolphins

Absolutely amazing! The staff/tour guides were so friendly and helpful. Had a smile on their face all day and even after years of doing these tours, their excitement levels were on par with everyone else’s. The guides were welcome to questions and happily chatted away with us during the tour. The experience in itself, seeing the dolphins, seeing a calf, seeing the stingray and the way the dolphins hunt was fantastic. We even got to see a seahorse which was so unexpected. Most definitely would do this again when I come back and have already told people about Wild Encounters. I will be back :) thank you so much!!!
