It was exciting to get on the boat and head out knowing that we would probably find some dolphins, and would have the opportunity to get in the water if we wanted to. But the experience of it actually happening was beyond anything I could have imagined. I simply can't wait until I have the chance to do something that magical again. AMAZING! I recommend this cruise to anyone going to KI, it is fantastic.

This has been the best experience being able to swim with the wild dolphins, and I highly recommend it to anyone. Andrew, and his brother went out their way to make our experience so enjoyable, showing us sea eagles in the wild, and the beautiful remote coastline with the seals just lazing on rocks. Seeing plenty of dolphins with their young right up close and being able to swim with them was a truly exhilarating experience.
A MUST DO on your trip.

Great and very fast boat, excellent guide (Andrew), dolphins everywhere, unforgettable adventure for all of us, especially for our kids (age 5,8 and 11). We recommend it to everybody looking for something really exciting. We appreciated the delicious home made cake too. Andrew was very helpful when we first contacted him by mail and responded to all our questions regarding the trip. Really great experience!

Just spent hours seeing birds of prey, looking at rock formations, viewing seals play and dolphins fly and even spent time swimming along side them! On top of it all was the fantastic and auxilerating boat ride along the stunning Emu bay and local coast line. Friendly and fun staff. Incredibly memorable.

I have spent many dollars for my family of 6 on dolphin and whale watching trips never seeing much, or maybe a distant fin. I emailed Andrew and he said I would not be disappointed!
Wow, what a trip, to see the dolphins in their 'living room'! They were a little bit unsure and had young with them, but what was great was that Andrew perservered, we tried different things then he took every person out on the rope on the side to make sure they got to swim with the dolphins and still us all go in for a swim afterwards with them.
I am so sorry I can't remember the ladies name who took the tour with Andrew, but she was funny, informative and great....the baby Joey on board was a hit with the kids.
It was my daughters best part of a 25 day trip! Thank you
