What an amazing adventure!! I was lucky enough to be the first to slip into the crystal clear, shallow water to swim with a wild dolphin. He was so curious and playful. I will never forget looking at him eye to eye while he twirled under me!! Simply sensational!

Andrew goes out of his way to ensure everyone has a fantastic time. He is very flexible with his tour and is even willing to stay out a little longer if he feels some need more time with the dolphins.

I've done other dolphin tours/swims before but nothing comes close to comparing with this. I will be doing this again some day.

Had a couple of previous failures at swimming with dolphins over in Bunbury (WA). Thought that this was going to be a repeat but we kept being reassured that we would find them - and we did. What fantastic experience, enhanced by our friendly and informative guide, boat driver, coffee maker, dolphin spotter and generally top boke, Andrew.

Do this if you are on Kangaroo Island!

I have previously paid three times to swim with Dolphins and with KI Marine Adventures was the only successful time (previously unsuccessful in Baird Bay on Eyre Peninsula South Australia and in New Zealand). Andrew was a great host and made sure everyone had an opportunity to swim with the pod of 20 friendly wild dolphins. My husband and I were wearing wetsuits which made it more comfortable in the water but it wasn't necessary. The day was pretty windy and the boat travels quickly so something warm (jumper or a dry towel or jacket) is recommended.

An unforgettable afternoon, seeing over 40 dolphins at close range..I photographed rather than swimming with them and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Note there are no facils for changing into swim gear on craft so come prepared and hang on to your hat!!!

Heading out into the blue waters of Emu Bay and surrounding coastline on such a beautiful day was fantastic. Andrew was very accommodating and our family had a great ride across and over the waves which was great fun. The day was capped off with a swim alongside 40+ dolphins and a couple of sea lions. Couldn't have had a better day and will be back next year!
