This is a new way to get up close to the dolphins,it is like swimming with the pod. I HAVE also done there back of boat swim which is good but the front swim is far better.

It was a pretty cool morning and it was amazing to see the Dolphins so close!! The only thing is, you are in a net in the water under the boat and not actually in the water yourself. That was a bit disappointing and also the short time. But it was still an amazing experience to

Went on this trip the other day and I must say it’s the most overrated trip I can recall. The weather was not that good and we had to go out quite a way to sea to find dolphin pods, and it was very choppy, cant control the weather,but when one of the staff says they did not

Response from Temptationsailing, Manager at Dolphin Cruise from Adelaide with Optional Dolphin Swim
Responded 7 Mar. 2020
We are disappointed to hear your review. We take our safety briefing very seriously and we conduct this within the marina, where it is quiet, and the crew member doing the brief is only 7 metres (at most) away from the furthest person. We operate a professional and responsible charter business and therefore we constantly look at our weather reports, however sometimes the reports are not always accurate. We do cancel if the weather/water conditions are not suitable for the cruise. We are dealing with wild animals in their own environment, so everyday is different in terms of weather/water conditions and dolphin interaction, this is something we can not control. The reason we have had great reviews for our dolphin swimming this season is because everyone entering the water have seen dolphins except for only three cruises and then we have refunded the difference between the swim and watch or offered them to return another time. We apologise if our toilets were not clean, however, they are cleaned and disinfected before all cruises, but not during the cruise as the crew are looking for dolphins and attending to passengers. The majority of our crew are marine biologists and are very knowledgeable and helpful. They enjoy what they do and are always very enthusiastic towards our customers.

Great morning swimming with dolphins. We had a great interaction with a large pod of short beak common dolphins. So cool to see them swimming all around us! The crew were very knowledgeable and certified marine biologists which made the experience feel very authentic.
