Tour description provided by Viator

Swim with wild dolphins in the sheltered bays and islands off Rockingham, only 40-minutes by road from Perth.This is a unique opportunity to interact with the dolphins in their natural environment. Over the course of 20 years, the crew has befriended over 200 local dolphins, and this familiarity makes for an incredible day interacting with these amazing, intelligent creatures.

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.
