The Baird Bay sea lion and dolphin swim is a once in a lifetime experience that is not to miss. We saw this last minute on the internet, and decided to give it a go. We arrived about 20 minutes early, but that gave us much more time to prepare for the swim, and meet the staff. They gave us... More

We stayed in the campground and fortunately had a tinnie for fishing. The camp fits about six caravans and has a honesty box of $10 per night with shelter for happy hour and a Eco loo nearby. Overlooks the bay with sensational sunsets and a great lookout. Get a signal from the lookout but have to About six kms past... More

I took three of my four kids on this Eco experience and we loved it. My youngest Boy who is six was too scared to get in but Alan made him feel safe on the boat so my 9 and 10 year old girls could snorkel with the sea lions and dolphins. Alan and his wife are amazing custodians of... More

sheer joy!... to be able to swim, interact and observe the sea lions is a blessing. Just the arrival of our boat bought about 20 sea lions (half) off the beach to come visit us. Once I got over the fact the waters were freezing I was able to wade in shore and stand in the shallows with these amazing... More

It's definitely a "thing to do"! There are no words for describe this experience, you just have to do it! We were not a lots of persons, just a group of 14 which was good. We started by have a look around a beach where sea lions were laying on the sun. No one was on the water and we... More

We visited Baird Bay after we heard about the opportunity to swim with dolphins and sea lions when in Monkey Mia - and, though really a remote spot, it is worth the visit! When we arrived, we were fitted in our wet suits (a good thing to wear, even at 42 degrees air temperature, as the water has not more... More

Where do I begin? I don't believe there are words to describe this adventure but I will try. My husband and I were in Australia for 2 weeks and this was the highlight of our vacation. We were impressed before we even took the tour. Trish and Allan were patient and responsive to all our questions prior to booking the... More

What an experience. I was in Ceduna visiting a friend and he suggested this. We went down early and checked in. They have good light refreshments, drinks, crisps, hot drinks etc. Once everyone arrived they brought us through to put on wetsuits and once we were ready it was onto the boat and put into the bay. First stop was... More
