Our operational season is 1st weekend of October to last weekend of May. October operations ensure the boat encounters not only dolphins, though often we see the traveling Humpback Whales and calves as they commence their southern migration on the whale highway which takes them right through our swim grounds at Port Stephens. Whale Watching and dolphin watching combine with our swim, where for months and we get to see the most amazing sights while enjoying close in water encounters with dolphins.
Another world first: This season Dolphin Swim Australia’s guests will enjoy the benefits of high definition cameras capturing the action above and below water. Off season has seen the implementation of state of the art camera capture systems and now each and every swim will be filmed above and below water allowing guests to both see the action, via twin flat screen TV’s on board and the general public, friends and family, through the scheduled playback where a rough edit of the the entire swim sequence including training, occurs with a 6 hour delay on our website. How cool is that? Clients will also be able to purchase a disk of video footage and stills from this state of the art system, right on the boat on the day. This is the best wild dolphin swim in Australia bar none, so BOOK NOW and ensure you will be joining Dolphin Swim Australia for their third and best season yet!

With an amazing trip to tonga we were able to capture the humpback whale songs for the year. Incredibly, the whales all sing the same song. It does change from year to year, and gets a bit more evolved, but all of the singers are singing the same song. It’s quite amazing to think about. Have a listen to some of the sounds below. Each sound bite is taken from the overall song.
Close your eyes and listen to the whale song. You can almost imagine yourself there, swimming with the whales. It is an amazing example of communication, at a level far out of the human experience. Detailed information is being sent through this aqueous environment, to disperse these sound bites for the whales to retrieve. It’s alost impossible to image. These waves of information can travel all the way from Bermuda, to Australia.
