Description

Join our fun and caring team for this bucket list experience - the only permitted wild dolphin swim in NSW - in the bluewater wonderland of Port Stephens! Meet us bright and early to get fitted with your wetsuit, mask and snorkel before we head offshore and into the sunrise (weather permitting) on a 52' ocean-going catamaran.

Our experienced Swim Leaders will run you through the swim protocols and a snorkel briefing, after which you can sit back and relax or enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with some breakfast as the boat crew and swim team locate the beautiful wild dolphins and our Marine Mammal Observer entertains you with an educational commentary regarding the dolphins and the Port Stephens area.

Once the dolphins are located, the vessel becomes a hive of activity and excitement! Swimmers are organised into groups and attached to a line between the bows of the boat and then enter the magical world of wild dolphins! The inquisitive dolphins cross back and forth in front of you while you are pulled gently through the water - and the dolphins are so close, it is just like being a part of their pod!

This is an exhilarating experience that will leave you smiling and buzzing with excitement long after the activity is over! Come and #JoinThePod!!
