Wild Dolphin Swim in Port Stephens
Come swim with WILD dolphins in the beautiful Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park in NSW! This is an opportunity for the oceanic adventure of a lifetime Join a pod of dolphins in the water as a Swimmer; or, if you would prefer to stay dry, simply view these magnificent creatures from the boat as an Observer.
This is the only permitted wild dolphin swim in New South Wales, the only swim of its kind in the world - and only a 2.5 hour drive north of Sydney
Come and be a part of the pod and witness TRUE dolphin behaviour! Six swim guests at a time are attached to a customised rope which is strung between the two bows of a 52' (15.8m) catamaran and towed through the water while inquisitive wild dolphins dart back and forth between the bows and within a couple of metres of the guests.
One of the best dolphin watching cruises you will ever experience. Not only do you get to watch wild off-shore dolphins in their natural environment, you also get to watch as these friendly oceanic dolphins play with in-water swimmers. Dolphin Swim Australia is leading the way in sustainable dolphin swim cruises. With informative commentary provided by staff, this is an educational experience, as well as an action-packed adventure. It is an experience you won't want to miss!
All wild dolphin swim tours leave from d'Albora Marina in Nelson Bay, Port Stephens, and take guests offshore to the beautiful waters of the Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park, where the swims take place.
Why not make a weekend of it and witness more of stunning Port Stephens? With a variety of accommodation and other activities available, there is something to suit everyone!
In Port Stephens, the 'Dolphin Capital' of Australia, you can swim with dolphins, take a dolphin watching cruise, take a whale watching cruise, scuba dive, parasail, do stand-up paddle boarding, jet ski, deep sea fish, sightsee, or just go for an ocean swim. If you love the water, there is no need to go anywhere else! There are also many other activities, such as sand boarding, quadbiking, camel riding and much, much more!
Come and join us for a wild dolphin swim and have the experience of a lifetime!
