Have you ever dreamed of swimming with wild dolphins?

Experience it today with Australia’s original and multi award-winning wild dolphin specialists. With over 20 years of experience, friendship and trust built up with the local dolphins, they offer visitors a unique opportunity to interact with these fascinating creatures in their natural environment.

Your tour includes a three to six hour cruise on a luxury, custom built boat (on-board toilets and hot showers). Full-length wetsuit, mask and snorkel and snorkelling lessons are provided. Expert guides ride underwater aqua scooters to ensure you get up close and personal with the dolphins.

Wild dolphin guarantee – they have a 99 per cent success rate and if you are amongst the unlucky one per cent who doesn’t get to swim with the dolphins on your cruise, you can re-book free of charge for another cruise.

Light lunch and refreshments are included. Return transfers from Perth can be booked separately. Complimentary photos of the cruise are uploaded to Flickr for you to share!

Your adventure begins with cruising Rockingham’s sheltered bays and islands in search of any of over 200 dolphins that 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 riding 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.
