Swim Encounter


Join us for an intimate swim with wild dolphins in their natural environment. This tour is our most popular and exhilarating experience. Visitors are given the opportunity to swim with the wild Bottlenose Dolphins in their own environment. Accompanied by our experience guide and trained volunteers you will venture into the open waters of Koombana Bay. Depending on dolphin sightings you will be guided into the water where the dolphins may elect to initiate interaction with the swimmers. As they are wild dolphins interaction cannot be guaranteed.

An award winning tour guaranteed to thrill.
