Full description

Enjoy swimming with wild dolphins, a bucket list memorable adventure. Rockingham is a 45-minute drive south of Perth.

In Rockingham, climb aboard the custom-built luxury dolphin swim boat designed to make accessing the water easy. Cruise Rockingham’s sheltered bays and islands in search of any of over 200 local dolphins.

The crew will conduct introductory snorkeling lessons. 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 you don’t feed them, they simply spend some time enjoying each other’s company. After your experience, enjoy a gourmet platter, including fresh local seafood onboard before returning to Rockingham, where your day finishes with the drive back to Perth. Choose to swim with the dolphins or stay dry onboard as a spectator.

Wonderful to have so many wild dolphins swim and play so close to you. Unforgettable experience. The crew were amazing , a well oiled machine, so passionate they seemed more excited than half the customers. Very kind people who worked to make sure we all got the most from the experience.

What an amazing day! How special to experience magical interactions with dolphins in the wild in a way that was respectfully managed with their well being in mind. Loved that this is a local family business and the friendly helpful staff. I was looking for a special day with my daughter and this exceeded expectations. Thank you.

My wet suit was way too big it was uncomfortable and I felt very foolish in it embarrassed even, my friends also commented on the fact that I was offered another one but then that option was taken away and helped me role the arms and legs up. But the body of the wet suit was also so loose I could fit both my arms in it. Please take care when outfitting people. My size and shape are a continuous burden to me I am not even 5 foot and due to medication I have put on a lot of weight in a very short time and I hate it. I know that when talking about the wonderful experience I had, a dream come true, there will also be the memory of feeling self-conscious and a little embarrassed. every thing else was perfect and the staff were so nice, Thank you.
