When booking, select the option that corresponds to your pickup location: a meeting spot in Perth, central Perth hotels, or Rockingham. If departing Perth, your tour starts with the coach drive to Rockingham, where you hop aboard your custom-built ‘dolphin swim’ boat that features a large platform for easy access in and out of the water.

Set off from the shore with the boat crew, who locates a pod of dolphins while you put on your provided wetsuit, snorkel, and mask. Then jump in the water and marvel at the dolphins who quickly surround you, ready to swim with you and show off their playful antics. While swim-with-dolphin opportunities can be found at many beach resorts in Australia and around the world, this tour provides a superior experience due to the staff, who has built a rapport with these beloved marine mammals. It’ll be the highlight of your time in Perth.

When you get out of the water, refuel with provided refreshments on the boat before returning to Rockingham, where your tour ends with the drive back to Perth.

First time ever snorkeling and definitely the first time swimming with dolphins! This was a great experience, got to see a few dolphins swimming around us and some getting really close. The crew were very thoughtful for both the environment, the dolphins and all of us, really made the day even more special. Great experience in the wild :)

What a brilliant, well organised and amazing day. The instructors were knowledgeable and friendly. The boat and equipment was well maintained. And best of all the dolphins were so close and playful.
One of the best experiences in my life

Over the years I’ve tried to see or swim with dolphins so many times. But for some weird reasons they just never showed up. In zanzibar, in Bali, in Byron Bay… But this time, as soon as we got on the boat and started sailing, they just came next to us! When I was in mexico, I saw the sea world offering swimming with dolphins in captivity… that just didn’t feel right to my heart. Wild encounter means so much to me. And I do wish the government limit the amount of people going to swim with dolphins in the bay. I’d say no more than one tour a day. We saw some penguins swimming too! The water is freezing, for me. I couldn’t feel my ears. I’d recon you wear extra snorkelling suit as a base layer. The ship provides 5mm wetsuit and that really kept me warm. I really appreciate how the tour and Aussies in general really love and protect their animals and environment. Proper safety briefings, proper knowledge briefing on the dolphins. Really professional and well organized. Rockingham is a beautiful place, nice coffee shops around.
Great experience!! Full of joy!!

IT was awsome to See dolphins in their natural environment!! I can 100% recommend it!! If you really wanna see dolphins, book this trip instead of going to the zoo or aquarium!! Support this organisation, the team was so kind and they told really interesting knowledge about this special animals!! They also try their best, that you can see the animals in a good way, close and many times!!
Great day with dolphins!

Everyone had numerous encounters with multiple dolphins. We were able to see a ~ 3 week old infant with mom and an older calf. There was no feeding of the dolphins, only curiosity on their part! The guides were very friendly and new a lot about individual dolphins and their habitat. Great day on the ocean!
Amazing experience
