Real Aussie Says
There are over 200 local bottlenose dolphins that live amongst the sheltered waters of Rockingham’s bays and islands that we’ve come to know as friends. They don’t perform tricks and we don’t feed them, we simply spend some time enjoying each other’s company!
Wild Dolphins Swim Experience
- Trip Styles: Budget
Swim with the wild dolphins in Rockingham.
The Dolphins come incredibly close, we’ll have them doing loops and spins within inches of you at times. To ensure that we do not harm the dolphins in any way by transmitting skin diseases or damaging their protective skin layer we adhere to a strict ‘no touch policy’.
We do not touch the Dolphins, its terrible for their health and would ruin the unique friendship we have with them which is based on a mutual curiosity and enjoyment of one another’s company, rather than food. Feeding wild dolphins (and most other species of wild animals) results in an increased mortality rate a nd decrease in reproductive success.
It varies throughout the year between 18 in September through to 25 degrees Celsius during the summer and autumn months. We have nice thick wetsuits and hoods to keep you warm.
You don’t have to be an Olympic swimmer to join in and no previous snorkeling experience is required (although it is helpful)! Our professional and friendly crew conducts introductory snorkeling lessons and have an excellent track record of helping nervous or less experienced swimmers through the experience.

Important Booking Info
- The chances of a shark encounter are very low, however, when you work in the ocean as often as we do there is unfortunately always a risk. To ensure the safest possible environment for our passengers and crew we use Shark Shields which generate an electric field that produces intolerable discomfort to the sharks’ sensory receptors known as Ampullae of Lorenzi (found on the snouts of all predatory sharks) forcing them to veer away and leave the immediate area.
