What You Can Expect

Swim with Dolphins Day Trip from Perth

Swim With Dolphins Day Trip

Your day begins with a coach transfer from Perth. On arrival to Rockingham, you'll board the custom-made dolphin swim vessel complete with a large rear platform, making access to the water very easy.

After your crew has located a pod, you’ll gear up with wetsuits, masks and snorkels (all equipment is included) and then dive into the fun, as you are quickly surrounded by excited whistles and splashes as the dolphins arrive to play. While many resorts provide opportunities to swim with dolphins, the crew’s rapport with these precocious marine mammals has created one of the best swim-with-dolphins excursions in Australia. Better still, Rockingham is a brief, 40-minute drive from Perth, making it an easy day trip.

Following your swim, you’ll be treated to refreshments back on the boat before your return journey back to Perth.

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!
