Temptation is a 58 foot sailing catamaran which has been doing wild dolphin swims daily since 2001, in this time we have never been out on a dolphin cruise and not seen dolphins. In fact we will give you all your money back if dolphins are not seen on this cruise. Dolphins always come over to Temptation and you can stand or lay above them on our front nets. If you wish to swim, no worries (but book early to avoid disappointment) this is a totally wild experience, no feeding, no touching just viewing from within the water. Because these are wild dolphins we have strict rules to abide by (both for the safety of the swimmers and the dolphins) and sometimes it can be rushed to get the swimmers in the water and sometimes the crew do need to yell so that the swimmers know which way to look under water. If you book in for a swim and on the day change your mind, no problems we can refund the difference (direct bookings only), especially for young children who decide they don't want to swim, that way they don't need to feel forced to go into the water. Remember you will always see more dolphins from on board, but seeing wild dolphins underwater is just amazing.

A bit of a cold day but we had numerous dolphin sightings which was very exciting and you can move around the catamaran in the front. There were good photo oportunities and someone on board taking photos that you can buy.

We recently went on the dolphin cruise. We chose to watch only, not swim. Boat was very stable and the bay was calm so it was a lovely cruise. Saw 2 different species of dolphins and took heaps of photos. Highly recommended.

Such a great day! The staff were wonderful, so friendly and passionate about what they do! Swimming with the dolphins in their natural habitat was like no other experience! Would recommend to anyone to do this if they want a unique experience.

I went on the dolphin swim a few weeks ago and the weather wasn't too great so we didn't get to see too many dolphins. The crew was nice enough to let us come back again for free so we came back on a really good day and we saw so many dolphins! They were swimming right next to us,... More

Have now done both a swim tour and a watch tour and both experiences very different to each other but both very enjoyable. My swim experience a couple of weeks ago the water was calm and we had an overcast day. This is did make it harder to see the dolphins in the water. The staff worked tirelessly to find... More
