Experience this once in a lifetime dolphin encounter! This 3.5 hours cruise departs from Glenelg early in the morning, to give you the best chance to see these amazing cruises. As if that wasn't enough, you'll hop into the water to actually swim with the dolphins in their natural habitat.
Your swim with dolphins experience begins at 7:45am sharp when you arrive at the boat - a 58ft colossal sailing catamaran. As soon as you board, the professional and enthusiastic crew will make you feel welcome and also excited about the adventure you are about to encounter. A briefing is then conducted by one of the expert crew which includes what to expect, what to do and not to do and for those who have never snorkelled, a demonstration is given.
The boat departs the marina at approx. 8:00am, sometimes within minutes you get to see the first dolphins of the day, which seem to come out of nowhere to play and frolic around the hulls. For the swimmers - the interaction can amazingly last over an hour; however, this is sometimes spread over three or four swims with different pods of dolphins. The first time you see them underwater it takes your breath away. Their grace and playfulness is stunning and the sounds of their whistles and echo location noises are mesmerising.
For the watchers - not everyone wishes to get into the water, however, even from the vessel the dolphins seem just out of reaching distance, enabling you to enjoy and capture on film their playful displays. This cruise is about being with wild dolphins in their natural environment therefore every cruise and swim is different. Please note that the dolphins are not fed or enticed in anyway.
This cruise runs with a maximum of 24 swimmers and 26 watchers - 50 people in total
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience may still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider or if it is cancelled the provider will contact you direct.
Please wear bathers, a towel, hat, sunscreen, a camera, warm clothes (for after your swim), and any snacks or drinks you may want. Please note there are no snacks or refreshments provided on the cruise.
This experience is not available in June, July or August. Dolphins are wild and free to swim wherever they wish. There is a high probability that you will see dolphins, however this cannot be guaranteed. This makes the experience all the more special when you do see dolphins.
This experience takes place in Glenelg, SA.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
