Your adventure begins with cruising Rockingham’s sheltered bays and islands in search of the wild dolphins your crew have come to know as friends. An excited buzz takes over the boat when the first dolphins of the day are sighted and your crew get you ready to swim.
Sleek, silvery dorsal fins start breaking the surface of the water within metres of the boat and then the skipper gives the command everyone’s been waiting for – ‘Go!’
You slip silently into the water escorted by an experienced guide driving an underwater aqua-scooter. 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 the crew don’t feed them; simply spend some time enjoying each other’s company … it’s a wild encounter!
Rockingham Wild Encounters are dedicated to ensuring the best experience for both visitors and dolphins. The dolphins’ approval of their friendship is reflected in their better than 99 per cent success rate. You don’t have to be an expert swimmer to join in and no previous snorkelling experience is necessary.
