Get the opportunity to observe and mingle with Australia's native dolphins in their natural habitat on this boat tour from Perth. The tour's guides know the best spots in Rockingham to find pods of dolphins that are used to the presence of humans and will teach you safe and respectful ways to swim in the water alongside them.
What to Expect
Customize the start of your tour by choosing hotel pickup or central location meetup in Perth or Rockingham. Once you arrive in Rockingham, transfer to the custom-built dive boat, featuring a large swim platform for easy access to the water. 

The captain and crew know where the dolphins like to hang out; they'll pilot the boat toward the secluded coves that are safe for swimming and diving alongside the marine mammals. As you travel, get expertly fitted with a mask, fins, snorkel, and wetsuit. After an orientation from the crew on how to safely and responsibly be in the water with the large animals, find a spot and jump in. While swim-with-dolphin opportunities can be found at many beach resorts in Australia, this tour provides a superior experience due to the staff, who has built a rapport with these mammals over years of swimming expeditions. 

Refuel with water, tea, coffee, and a light lunch before returning to your original departure point.

What a memorable trip! Brilliant.

We have always had a desire to be in the water with wild dolphins. Yesterday we accomplished that life long ambition. The team at Rockingham are fantastic. We saw dolphins up close on a number of occasions and you almost get eye to eye contact....More

An incredible day!

I booked this after coming across it online - and I'm so glad I did! The conditions were perfect - the sea was really clear and we found dolphins very quickly - which I'm told doesn't happen all the time. Understandably, as they are wild...More

Hi AngharadJ54, Thank you very much for a great review! We were very lucky to find the Dolphins in a social mood in such clear water we could even see the bottom. The dolphins were feeding when we first found them, then they started mating,...More
