Overview
Get the opportunity to observe and mingle with Australia's native dolphins in their natural habitat on this boat tour from Perth. The tour guides know the best spots in Rockingham to find pods of dolphins that are used to the presence of humans and teach you safe and respectful ways to swim in the water alongside them.
Highlights
  • Tour led by guides who have built rapport with the dolphins over the years
  • Provided wet suit and snorkel gear for a comfortable time in the water
  • Full briefing on how to behave respectfully and safely around the dolphins 
  • Refreshments and light lunch 
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 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 the years of swimming expeditions.  Refuel with water, tea, coffee, and a light lunch before returning to your original departure point.

Hi ellastokes22, Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are so glad you got to experience swimming with 100% wild dolphins, and enjoyed your tour with us so much! It really is an unforgettable adventure! I will pass on all your kind comments to our lovely crew! It is so important that people, like yourself, choose to visit these animals in the wild rather than in captivity. In the wild Indo-pacific bottle-nose dolphins can live well into their 40's however, in captivity they only live to 10-12 years old due to boredom and depression. So thank you for choosing to come on one of our tours! It's awesome to hear that you've been inspired to study marine science, we wish you all the best with your future endeavours in the field! Hope to see you again soon, Gabby Rockingham Wild Encounters
