Amazing experience! So glad I did it. The tour guides were so friendly and we got to see and swim with a bunch of dolphins and a playful Australian sea lion. Super cool! Would recommend!

What an absolutely stunning experience! It was of the highest importance to me that the dolphins were wild and not bated at all and I am pleased to say that they were indeed wild. The staff was very friendly and informative about the dolphins we saw and very respectful of them too. It's clear that their welfare is high on the companies list of priorities.
We saw 2 different pods and spent about 40 mins in total with them, I got up close to several dolphins and this was certainly a dream come true for me :-). I urge anyone that wants to do this to go with this company.

My friend and I both went on this tour as part of her birthday present and found it was a really awesome experience. The staff were all awesome and the entire trip was really well organised from start to finish and they made sure we all got several sights of dolphins. No complains at all!

The most amazing experience ever!! To get that close to these wonderful animals in the wild was truly exhilirating as well as humbling. The team are devoted both to the wildlife and to providing a top quality day out; I would highly recommend this trip. Julie (Cheshire, UK)

The guides are friendly. Everything go’s on an easy way. They tell how to behave in the water between the dolphins. We saw today dolphins, at one meter distance. This was an amazing experience. Everything was organised very well. It was a very nice and relaxed day. Thank you for that.

I thoroughly enjoyed my day out swimming with the dolphins in Rockingham. The weather was perfect, and the team who took us out were friendly, fun and knew their stuff. It was an amazing experience to swim up close and personal with the dolphins, who were especially playful on this particular day. And the piping hot cups of tea and lunch were especially appreciated after coming out of the cold water! A terrific day out.

A wonderful half day trip. The hotel pick up was on time and we were at Rockingham within about 45 minutes. After time for a coffee we boarded the very comfortable boat and headed out to sea. Maybe we were lucky but we found dolphins within about 20 minutes. We had already donned our wet suits and been given instructions on how it works. We were split into 6 groups of about 6 in each and when told to go, entered the water and by holding onto the person in front were towed around looking at these wonderful creatures. Magical! After about an hour we moved on (their licence restricts the time permitted for interacting with the dolphins). Moored in a bay we had lunch and swum off the back of the boat before returning to shore. All the staff were very enthusiastic, knowledgable and encouraging.
Highly recommended.
Why not 5 stars?
The minibus could have been a little more comfortable.
Also, with my wife and I both in our 60s and new to snorkeling the instruction could have been a little clearer. I was OK but my wife struggled a little and had to sit out a couple of the swims as she regained her breath and confidence.
Otherwise fine. The took photos of us in the water and posted them free of charge on the internet. They responded very quickly and efficiently to my query on how to download the photos.

We had a fantastic day and the crew were lots of fun, if you are from NQ or not used to the cold, don't go end April/May as we were freezing, my friend missed out on swimming with dolphins as she was so cold she got out of her wetsuit before we found "social dolphins" our first swim the dolphins were not social, so we got back in boat and had to sit in "wet" wetsuits whilst the boat found a group of dolphins who swam with us, we forgot to take any snacks on board and the simple "wraps" for lunch were delicious and so was the hot milo/tea/coffee to warm us up, i would like to go again and take my older children in summer!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Took hours to find the dolphins, and only actually in the water with them for about 4 mins max!!!!!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this

This tour was NOT eco-friendly at all. When we saw a dolphin and her calf, about 28 people + guides got into the water at the same time. The crew use motorised power units to move. One of them is the photographer and she literally chased the dolphins. This made me feel very uncomfortable !
