About Temptation Sailing
Temptation is a 58 foot sailing catamaran which has been doing wild dolphin swims daily since 2001, in this time we have never been out on a dolphin cruise and not seen dolphins. In fact we will give you all your money back if dolphins are not seen on this cruise. Dolphins always come over to Temptation and you can stand or lay above them on our front nets. If you wish to swim, no worries (but book early to avoid disappointment) this is a totally wild experience, no feeding, no touching just viewing from within the water. Because these are wild dolphins we have strict rules to abide by (both for the safety of the swimmers and the dolphins) and sometimes it can be rushed to get the swimmers in the water and sometimes the crew do need to yell so that the swimmers know which way to look under water. If you book in for a swim and on the day change your mind, no problems we can refund the difference (direct bookings only), especially for young children who decide they don't want to swim, that way they don't need to feel forced to go into the water. Remember you will always see more dolphins from on board, but seeing wild dolphins underwater is just amazing.

Lots of Dolphins, up close and personal. Large bait ball action. Time called, not a lack of dolphins. Staff were excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Kid friendly tour, bring snacks it is 4 hours of fun, but the kids were hungry on the slow cruise home.

The wild dolphins swim was absolutely epic. We had some pretty amazing interactions with the dolphins on both the back and front swims- at least 10-12 dolphins swimming under and around us. Nothing quite like it- the team are really friendly and helpful and the equipment was great as well. Also just beautiful cruising around on the Catamaran. The crew seemed to be really respectful of the dolphins also- we saw a pod early on and they didn’t seem too keen to engage and instead of pressing it the crew moved on and found another pod that had a ball playing with the boat. I am a bit of a nervous swimmer/snorkeler but felt very comfy with the crew there and so long as you have a wee bit of arm strength to hold onto the rope you’re fine. Totally worth it and would recommend :)
