I've done this tour quite a few times now as I've become addicted, these guys are fantastic at what they do. this would have to be one of the best wildlife experiences anyone could have, the dolphins heard the boat and came to find us, they seemed as they were happy to see us jumping all around the boat, they...

Went out with Andrew to swim with the dolphins. Before that we were treated to a marine lesson and shown sea eagles, wedge tailed eagles, osprey, bronzed whaler, rays, salmon. And then when it came to the swim, we jumped in and were surrounded by about 8 dolphins, perhaps a bit less than normal, but playful none the less. Enjoyed... More

We had the most amazing time on this trip. Got to swim with wild dolphins, schooling salmon and saw a few sea eagles. The staff were lovely and very professional. The boat has no propeller so the dolphins won't get hurt. Loved every minute of it!!! Couldn't recommend this trip enough.

I’ve been out on the Dolphin Trip twice – once on a private excursion and the other on a morning trip to swim with dolphins. Both outings were fantastic, although the dolphins behaved very differently each time – very active & playful on one day and very laid back & cruisy the other. Some of the passengers were swimming with... More

Andrew was fantastic, very knowledgable and we swam with heaps of Dolphins, when we thought it was all over we got to go in again and again. Absolutely brilliant day out and the highlight of our 5 days on the island. Thank you so much !!! Recommend this trip to everyone who comes to the KI. Photos to come later.

Highly recommend this tour, taken by Andrew. We met at Emu Bay Jetty, warm March morning. The boat ride out to the Dolphin Bay is informative, and you can see lots of local KI inhabitants, such as sea eagles, seals etc. The Dolphins themselves are just amazing, and it is incredible to swim right along next to them. Andrew is... More

Amazing and magical morning spent with KI Marine Adventures, they do all your best to allow us to swim as long as possible with the beautiful wild dolphins, it was fabulous. We were only 6 peoples aboard the boat, and the sea was very quiet, it was just perfect ! Thanks again to the team, we highly recommend this adventure... More

As a KI Local and accommodation host we try to have hands on experience with the attractions on offer. Having a swim with dolphins and seeing our island from the sea and the spectacular wildlife was well worth the money

An amazing rare experience in paradisaic conditions with the most accommodating host. Andrew's local knowledge and charming manner spoilt a group of 11 to an amazing wild life experience topped off with swimming for a couple of hours with wild but friendly dolphins. Mind blowing, especially watching the dolphins herd salmon onto rocks and swimming off with a catch in... More
