This is the only permitted wild dolphin swim in New South Wales, the first swim of its kind in the world – and only a 2.5 hour drive north of Sydney! Come and be a part of the pod and witness TRUE dolphin behaviour! Six swim guests at a time are attached to a customised rope which is strung between the two bows of a 52′ (15.8m) catamaran and towed through the water while inquisitive wild dolphins dart back and forth between the bows and within a couple of metres of the guests – so amazing! All wild dolphin swim tours leave from d’Albora Marina in Nelson Bay, Port Stephens, and take guests offshore to the beautiful waters of the Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park, where the swims take place. Suitable for ages 7 to 70.

Come and #JoinThePod and have the experience of a lifetime!

Why not make a weekend of it and witness more of stunning Port Stephens??!! With a variety of accommodation and other activities available, there is something to suit everyone!

In Port Stephens, the ‘Dolphin Capital’ of Australia, you can swim with dolphins, take a dolphin watching cruise, take a whale watching cruise, scuba dive, parasail, do stand-up paddle boarding, jet ski, deep sea fish, sightsee, or just go for an ocean swim.
