  • Thank you to the crew for doing their best to give us a good experience; however, this is more of an expensive dolphin watching cruise than swim. Lovely concept, crew were knowledgeable, helpful and....  more »

  • Had such a great day with you. Loved your passion and the responsibility with which you interact with the dolphins. No "hunting" or "chasing" them. Seems they just enjoy joining and playing with us. Best tour ever๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ
  • Very professional staff that are extremely accommodating. We got our booking mixed up but they still helped us out. An amazing experience highly recommend. Will do it again.
  • Watching dolphins swim in the bow wave of a boat in itself is a great experience however to be in the water amongst those swimming wild dolphins is an experience of lifetime. I had that experience recently with Dolphin Swim Australia, a world class outfit who have combined wild dolphin research with the ability to be able to swim and observe dolphin behaviour from below the water line in a safe controlled environment. This is the worlds only total wild dolphin experience, don't miss it.
  • Could not recommend enough! The staff are a great time, the company is amazing for how they do it and it was truely an amazing experience!
  • You just have to experience this first hand!
