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 7.20am 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. 7.40am , 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.
Because these are wild dolphins every cruise and swim is different.
The boat returns to the marina at approximately 11:15am.
