    1. Wild Dolphin Swim & Cruise Day Trip from Perth

    Swim with wild dolphins at Rockingham for a memorable adventure! Rockingham is a 45-minute drive south of Perth. Self-drive or benefit from optional round-trip coach transfers from Perth. In Rockingham, climb aboard the custom-built dolphin swim boat designed to make accessing the water easy. Cruise Rockingham’s sheltered bays and islands in search of any of over 200 local dolphins. The friendly crew will conduct introductory snorkelling lessons. Then it'll be time to get in the water to make the most of your wild dolphin encounter!  After your experience, enjoy refreshments on board the boat before returning to Rockingham, where your day finishes with the drive back to Perth.

    2. Perth: Intermediate Private Kiteboarding Lesson

    Learn how to enter and exit the water independently and safely while controlling the kite, water re-launch the kite, and perform your first body drag downwind.

And that's all just for starters! Depending on your level, you may also learn an upwind body drag to recover board, an upwind body drag holding the board with one hand, entering and exiting at the same point while upwind body dragging, and much more. Don't miss this chance to improve your kiteboarding skills.

This has been on my bucket list for a long time so when I discovered Rockingham encounters ,I had to book a trip. I was not disappointed. The trip itself was very well organised. Staff are very friendly & informative. Light lunch of fresh fruit platter & wraps are provided along with unlimited water, tea coffee hot chocolate. Once the skipper spots a group of dolphins, it's all go to get us into the water quickly,quietly & efficiently so maximise the experience. To be in the water & have wild dolphins swim beside & below you is the most amazing experience. My group was also very lucky to have 2 babies swim with their mums , a 1 month old calf & a 12mth calf!! I was overwhelmed when I came so close to the babies. Everyone left the water with huge smiles on their faces!. The tour length is purely dependent on dolphin activity as they dont get fed to keep them near the boat. They will stay for as long as they want and if they do love on, the skipper will search for another group .

What an amazing day! How special to experience magical interactions with dolphins in the wild in a way that was respectfully managed with their well being in mind. Loved that this is a local family business and the friendly helpful staff. I was looking for a special day with my daughter and this exceeded expectations. Thank you.

Such a great experience! I highly recommend it. Angelica the bus driver was extremely nice and friendly, same for the crew on the boat, really cool and welcoming. And they know what they’re doing. I’d go back without a doubt! Definitely worth it!

Best experience ever, I’d recommend this to anyone! The staff was top notch, from their professionalism to friendliness.
