Perth: Swim with Wild Dolphins Tour

2. Perth: Swim with Wild Dolphins Tour

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.

This has been on my bucket list for a long time so when I discovered Rockingham encounters ,I had to book a trip. I was not disappointed. The trip itself was very well organised. Staff are very friendly & informative. Light lunch of fresh fruit platter & wraps are provided along with unlimited water, tea coffee hot chocolate. Once the skipper spots a group of dolphins, it's all go to get us into the water quickly,quietly & efficiently so maximise the experience. To be in the water & have wild dolphins swim beside & below you is the most amazing experience. My group was also very lucky to have 2 babies swim with their mums , a 1 month old calf & a 12mth calf!! I was overwhelmed when I came so close to the babies. Everyone left the water with huge smiles on their faces!. The tour length is purely dependent on dolphin activity as they dont get fed to keep them near the boat. They will stay for as long as they want and if they do love on, the skipper will search for another group .

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.

This is a real fun activity for family; swimming with wild dolphins in open water is a must do tour. 2 thumbs up!!

Positive, friendly and enthusiastic guides. Very good interaction with dolphins, plenty of them.

Amazing experience with amazing guides. Thank you for a brilliant day :)
