$115 per child

Island Explorer Tour (3 hours)

Join us onboard ‘Energizer’ the only custom-built dolphin swim jet boat in the industry with its smooth ride and comfortable seating. The north coast is home to the largest gatherings of wild Bottlenose dolphins on Kangaroo Island. Throughout summer, you could potentially be swimming freely amongst 50-80 dolphins in their relaxation areas (1- 3 metres deep), in a safe swimming area. Viewing from onboard is also amazing as the dolphins are very curious and swim all around the boat. There is plenty of room to move about onboard the boat where you can capture the best shots as you witness their antics diving in and out of the wake of the waves.

The Island Explorer Tour (dolphin swim) is a 3-hour experience taking in the magnificent sights of the north coast allowing plenty of time to swim and interact with the dolphins also viewing ancient fossil beds dated at 540 million years. A huge variety of coastal seabirds and wildlife can be seen on these tours, including white bellied sea eagles, wedge tailed eagles, falcons, and seal colonies. All snorkelling gear is provided as well as wetsuits. Coffee, tea, and biscuits are provided whilst you sit back, relax, and reflect on your true wild dolphin experience, often referred to as the best wild dolphin swim experience anywhere.
