Base yourself in trendy Fremantle to explore the big skies of the outback, the empty beaches and inviting waters where you can swim with dolphins and see whales, and visit welcoming boutique wineries.

    Swim with dolphins in the wild

    Cruise out to the sheltered shallows of Rockinghams calm, clear bays in search of any of the 180 bottlenose dolphins. They don't do tricks, and you won't feed them - simply spend some time enjoying each other's company. Please bear in mind that dolphin encounters are very likely but never 100% guaranteed. Following your meeting, head back to Perth.
