Wild Dolphin Swims
This program offers you the opportunity to observe and swim with wild bottlenose dolphins in Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, Australia. Our fully licensed vessel possesses a professionally trained and experienced crew to ensure that you have an unforgettable marine adventure. Passenger safety and the dolphins' protection are of paramount importance, and so we purposely limit the size of our trips to guarantee a high standard of customer and environmental care. Our on-board facilities include change areas, toilet, hot shower and a galley for serving refreshments. Wetsuits, masks and snorkels are all supplied. Reef and seal swims are often part of our trips, so be prepared to see and experience much more than just dolphins.
