Had the best day swimming with the wild dolphins we were very lucky to find dolphins in 5 mins of looking. You gotta book this if you are in the area! Loved it!

As a 65 year old British pensioner I didn't expect to ever have an experience likes this! Swimming with dolphins wild in the ocean in Perth Australia- it doesn't get any better. We came across dolphins within 15 minutes of leaving the jetty and had an exhilarating time in the water looking down as the dolphins swam below us.
Everything about the trip was so special. The enthusiasm of the crew was infectious and their professionalism and obvious love of the job exemplary.
We also had access to tea, coffee , biscuits etc in the galley and a very acceptable packed lunch provided in addition to be being picked up in Perth by minibus and delivered back safely after the trip.
Even the wild dolphins enjoyed the interaction with us humans! And we met a great crowd of fellow trippers from all parts of the globe.
What more can one say- a perfect day!!!

We've taken a couple dolphin boat tours elsewhere, but this was a whole level above. We had several fantastic encounters with dolphins, just a metre or two away from us, as we drifted through the water with our guide. The team was incredibly professional, helpful, knowledgable and enthusiastic and really made the day for us. My wife and I raised some minor health concerns at the start, and no question was too trivial for them to give us a detailed response on, which was really reassuring. We also loved the chance to play with the water "scooters" after the dolphin time, which were a bunch of fun. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to see these lovely creatures up close, and learn more about them.

Thank James W

We swam with dolphins a number of times and got good views throughout.

Those motorised swimming devices aren't as good as they look though, and you don't get to use them with the dolphins, just in the bay playing around afterwards.

The scenery is blighted by the Kwinana industrial area, but the dolphins themselves are fantastic. Even from the boat you can see them really well and they jumped out of the water when the boat creates waves.

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to write a review.

I agree, the best scenery is under water ; ) Although the Kwinana area is essential to the WA economy (the biggest grain facility in the Southern Hemisphere is located there!), the dolphins are absolutely the centre of attention.
I can recommend our Penguin Island cruises which are located inside Shoalwater Bay and out of sight of Kwinana : )

Thanks again for joining our cruise, we hope to see you again soon!

Kind regards,
RWE
