What You Can Expect

Swim with Dolphins Day Trip from Perth

Swim With Dolphins Day Trip

When booking, select the option that corresponds to your pickup location: a meeting spot in Perth, central Perth hotels or Rockingham, 40 minutes south of the city. If departing Perth, your tour starts with the coach drive to Rockingham, where you’ll hop aboard your custom-built ‘dolphin swim’ boat that features a large platform for easy access in and out of the water.

Set off from the shore with the boat crew, who locates a pod of dolphins while you put on your provided wetsuit, snorkel and mask. Then jump in the water and marvel at the dolphins who quickly surround you, ready to swim with you and show off their playful antics. While swim-with-dolphin opportunities can be found at many beach resorts in Australia and around the world, this tour provides a superior experience due to the staff, who has built a rapport with these beloved marine mammals. It’ll be the highlight of your time in Perth.

When you get out of the water, refuel with provided refreshments on the boat before returning to Rockingham, where your tour ends with the drive back to Perth.

Fantastic experience to be in the water with wild dolphins. We were really well looked after by the friendly instructors who made sure that everyone was comfortable in the water and had an opportunity to get close to the action. A memory for a lifetime.

Perfect day with dolphins. We have spent only about 1 hour to search the dolphins. Staff were very friendly, funny, nice and knowledgeable. I highly recommend to choose them if you want to swim with wild dolphins. Amazing experience.

This tour was fantastic. The staff are brilliant. It took us 5 hours to find a pod of dolphins, however this only made me even more sure that they were 100 wild. When we did find the dolphins, swimming with them was amazing. We spent a lot of time with them and the staff took plenty of pictures. I would recommend this tour to anybody. Definitely worth it!

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!
