Get up close and personal with the local wild dolphins and enjoy an exhilarating ride on Rockingham Wild Encounters adventure boat! 

Meet Logo, Boomerang or any of over 200 dolphins that the Rockingham Wild Encounters team have come to know as friends. You may see mothers with newly-born calves, learn how they use stingrays to catch octopus or see them spectacularly leaping from the wake of the boat!  Some days, the dolphins are natural performers and playfully approach the boat to greet their visitors. Other days, the tour boat quietly sneak alongside and watch them sleep! 

Rockingham Wild Encounters even have an underwater microphone to listen in to the clicks and whistles of the dolphins echo location. After spending some quality time with the dolphins, your cruise returns through the wildlife conservation zone of the marine park to visit the sea lions at Seal Island and to take advantage of any other wildlife viewing opportunities. Regular sightings include pelicans, ospreys, stingrays, cormorants, terns and more!
