We had a wonderful time and saw a ton of wild dolphins. You do need to be a decent swimmer though if you go in the water. Andrew did a great job of getting us as close as possible, but dolphins like to swim :) The water was a bit cold, but they had wet suits. It was completely worth... More

A friend and I did this tour in March 2016 and it was incredible. Andrew is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and he really cares about protecting the environment and not interfering with the Dolphins if they weren't interested. When it was time to swim with the Dolphins, it was one of the best experiences I've ever had.

Andrew is a legend but the dolphins are the real stars of the show. Absolutely amazing. This should be one of the top 10 things to do in Australia.

Firstly, swimming with a pod of some 40 beautiful dolphins (a few with calves!) is a once in a lifetime experience and will leave you filled with a pure joy reminiscent of childhood. Secondly, the tour guide is a 4th generation islander who knows the island inside and out and has a wealth of information and can point out sea... More
