Swim with Dolphins in Australia

SWIM WITH WILD DOLPHINS IN AUSTRALIA:
3 – 6 hour Swim with Wild Dolphins Cruise on a luxury, custom built boat
Price: £135

Availability: The Swim with Wild Dolphins cruise operates daily September 15 to early June (Western Australia Day Public Holiday), subject to weather and minimum passenger numbers.

SWIM WITH WILD DOLPHINS AND INTERACT WITH THEM IN THEIR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT! It’s the ultimate wildlife encounter! You don’t have to be an expert swimmer to join in and no previous snorkelling experience is necessary. Just bring a sense of adventure and be ready for an unforgettable, exhilarating encounter! The dolphin swim tour departs from Rockingham, roughly 45 Km south of Perth. You'll be collected from Perth Coach Station and taken to Rockingham.
What's Included:

  • 3 – 6 hour Swim with Wild Dolphins Cruise on a luxury, custom built boat (onboard toilets and hot showers)
  • Coach transfers from Perth
  • Full length wetsuit, mask and snorkel and snorkelling lessons
  • The Centre has a better than 99% success rate and if you are amongst the unlucky 1% who doesn’t get to swim with the dolphins on your cruise, you can rebook free of charge for another cruise.
  • Expert guides riding underwater aqua scooters to ensure you get up close and personal with the dolphins
  • Light lunch and refreshments
  • Self-serve tea, coffee, hot chocolate and fresh water
  • Complimentary photos of the cruise uploaded to Flickr for you to share!

Your adventure begins with cruising Rockingham’s sheltered bays and islands in search of any of the 180 local dolphins that your crew have come to know as friends. Before long the first dolphin sighting of the day is marked by the excited shout of Found them! followed by the slowing down of our engines to let the dolphins know we are keen to play!
An excited buzz takes over the boat as the crew ensures you’re fully prepared to enter the water. “Zip your wetsuits up, masks and snorkels on and make your way to the swim deck — it’s time to get wet!” Sleek, silvery grey dorsal fins start breaking the surface of the water within metres of the back of the boat and the skipper gives the command everyone’s been waiting for — Go!
Suddenly, you are surrounded by flashing grey torpedoes and the water is filled with whistles, splashes and laughter — both human and dolphin. They don’t do tricks and we don’t feed them, we simply spend some time enjoying each other’s company … it’s a wild encounter!

LOCATION | SIGHTSEEING:

Try to see some of the country while you're there. It's big (huge!) and each different region is exciting and very, very beautiful. Our great location is in Perth, a city rich in culture and filled with theatres, art galleries and museums. The city is modern and vibrant - a fun, friendly and 'laid back' place, with clear skies and a sunny climate. Western Australia is locally known as the 'state of excitement!'

Some of its more famous attractions include Kings Park, Scarborough Beach, Fremantle and the Swan River. Fremantle (or as the local’s call it, ‘Freo’) is the city’s port and is rich in history. At weekends you will find markets, entertainment and plenty of alfresco style cafes to laze in. Perth has restaurants to suit all tastes - the most popular cuisine is of course the great Australian BBQ. Barbeque facilities are abundant in local parks - take your own food and cook up a feast, Australian style!

THE BEST OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA
(Courtesy of Western Australia Tourism - www.westernaustralia.com)

  • Fremantle - Spend a few days in Fremantle is an absolute must. Just a 30 minute drive from Perth's city centre. Freo, as it's known by locals is a vibrant port city you can't miss.
  • Rottnest Island - Just offshore from Perth, Rottnest Island is where the locals go to swim at white-sand beaches, snorkel in turquoise water over shipwrecks, or kick back and go fishing. Rotto, as it's called locally, is a car-free zone, which adds to its relaxed feel.
  • Margaret River - No trip to Western Australia is complete without a pit stop at Margaret River. Originally a chilled out surfie town, Margaret River has evolved into the ultimate smorgasbord of good food, fine wine and spectacular scenery - just a three-and-a-half hour drive south of Perth.
  • Albany - Prepare to be blown away by Albany's dramatic convict history, set against a backdrop of rugged granite coastline, green seas and a wild beauty that tugs at the heartstrings. Step back in time and explore convict jails, old taverns, whaling ships and settlers' cottages and grand National Trust homes in beautifully landscaped grounds.
  • Denmark - where towering tall trees meet the ocean. A relaxed village atmosphere, romantic timber milling history and incredible coastal scenery.
  • Ningaloo Reef - Take a dive with hundreds of tropical fish, amazing coral formations and the world's biggest fish, the whale shark.
  • Monkey Mia - Monkey Mia is one of Western Australia's most famous dolphin watching destinations.
  • Shark Bay - The Shark Bay World Heritage Area was Western Australia's first World Heritage Listed site. Shark Bay's wilderness and natural wonders make for a unique holiday.
  • The Pinnacles - The extraordinary ancient rock formations are located about a three-hour drive north of Perth near the coastal town of Cervantes.
  • Kalgoorlie - Western Australia's largest goldfields town famed for its fascinating gold rush history, fabulous old buildings and old gold miners' ghost towns.
  • Esperance - For squeaky-white beaches, getting off the beaten track and bunking down under the stars. This place is so relaxed even the kangaroos sun bake on the beach!
  • Bunbury - just two hours drive south of Perth, it is located on a spectacular peninsular surrounded by blue waters of the Indian Ocean, Koombana Bay and the Leschenault Inlet.

REVIEWS AND FEEDBACK:

ALEXANDER NAUDI
British
Law Work Experience Internship in Perth

I would like to thank the lawyers ... They were always so willing to help me learn and I never once felt that I shouldn't ask them for help. The atmosphere in the firm was entirely supportive of one another and this made me feel very welcome from the outset. This was my first experience of law in practice so a lot of the work I was asked to do was very new to me so I was greatful for such a supportive environment.

The work was challenging at first but I quickly adapted to the hard work with the help from everyone at the Law Practice. I liked the fact that I was working in different areas of law every day. This helped me understand which areas of law I am most interested in and ultimately what I areas I am most likely to focus on for my future career.

Memorable moments included

  • Helping Leo with reasearch on a criminal case
  • Celebrating Kenneth's birthday with Durian birthday cake and not particuarly enjoying the cake!
  • Understanding various documents that I have never seen before and using them to create a list of documents to be used in court.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping me arrange my project in Perth. I had such an amazing time and left with an unforgettable experience.

I'll definitely advise 'Travellers' to anybody hoping for a similar opportunity and experience! I'm already planning my return to Australia after I finish University! Thank you again!

Law Work Experience Internship in Perth

The experience of working at the Lawyers firm was an amazing one. Everyone is very friendly and they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and make you a part of the office straight away. By the second week there, I felt as though I had been working there for years.

Everyday is different, they allowed me to get involved in lots of different tasks as each lawyer specialises in different areas. The work consisted of me doing research, sitting in on consultations, taking statements from clients, filing documents at court, drafting wills/letters, handling my own files, going to Court.

Whilst I was there, the firm had its first family law trial, which was a great experience to be a part of as I could go and observe the trial taking place every day at the Family court. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I loved being a part of an office environment and experiencing the daily lives of lawyers.

I believe doing this project has made me mature and grow as a confident individual. I have gained invaluable experience in all areas of law.

Everything went really well at the Law firm and Laurie and I are both very happy with the placement. We have been given work on files to do and are very glad to be given the independence to work as we would if we were lawyers here.
Thank you!
