What to Expect
See life through dolphin eyes on this extraordinary tour. Swim with Dolphins, Seals and Weedy Seadragons to discover the vibrant Great Southern Reef colours on board a fun, swift and stable 12-person RIB boat.
You slip into the warm wetsuit, put on the mask and snorkel, dive into the waters and frolic just like a dolphin. Check out seadragons sitting on the reef minding their own business, stingrays gliding by like UFOs, competing for space with the bottlenose dolphin.
Along the way, the dolphins are their own stars, lighting up the tour at times like colourful fireworks. Other times, they’re on their own totally excellent adventure. The natural joy of swimming freely like a dolphin is contagious for all who join this small pod of ten swimmers on our boat, The Apollo.
The experience is a deepening of connection with loved ones and friends. What a difference it makes to see life through the tenderness of dolphin eyes.
