Wild Dolphin Swim

Snorkel with oceanic dolphins off the coast of beautiful Port Stephens! The dolphins are completely wild and free and each swim is dependent upon them choosing to be near our in-water guests!

Are you looking for an unforgettable, bucket list adventure?

Our wild dolphin swim tours offer the thrill of a lifetime! Come and see the dolphins on their terms and move along with them in the water - it's just like being a part of the pod!

Only a 2.5 hour drive north of Sydney

Dolphin Swim Australia offers the only permitted wild dolphin swim in NSW and the first swim of its kind in the world! Tours operate out of Port Stephens - the dolphin capital of Australia - which is a little touch of Paradise on the East Coast. With 26 beaches and only 2.5 hours north of Sydney, it is the perfect location for a weekend getaway!

What We Offer

Wild Dolphin Swim

You will be fully immersed and gently pulled through the water, while safely harnessed at the front of our boat, between the two catamaran hulls. The dolphins love to play and choose to swim with you up close! It is the most interactive and safest way to swim with dolphins as they are constantly moving with us. This is how we have long, magical experiences of being ‘part of the pod’.

Dolphin Watch

Our amazing dolphin watch option brings you as close to the dolphins as possible without getting wet! Stay dry and be thrilled while watching dolphins swim and interact with humans in the wild! As these are oceanic dolphins, they are far more interactive than the dolphins you may normally see from shore. These dolphins don't see humans as often, and love to show off! This is why we consider this the best dolphin watch you can do!
