A magical day with the dolphins you'll never forget. Just 40 minutes south of Perth, organised tours will take you for a swim with wild dolphins in the sheltered waters of Rockingham and neighbouring Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. Swimming with these intelligent and playful creatures in their natural environment is a truly magical day you’ll never forget. The best time to experience this unique encounter is between September and May to coincide with the tour season. Please note; - Dolphin tours must be pre-booked via the tour operator. - Ferries and cruise tours to Penguin Island operate between 10am and 3pm (September to June). - All tours by boat are subject to weather conditions - The dolphins are generally very consistent in their habits and behaviours. However, as they are wild animals, sightings and interactions are not 100% guaranteed. See the tour operators’ terms and conditions for details....
