Swim with wild dolphins or just watch

Excited Child about to Swim with DolphinsDolphins are one of the Earth's most fascinating and curious creatures. We offer you this once in a lifetime encounter in which you will be touched forever.

Temptation is the first vessel in South Australia to be given a licence to swim with and study these magnificent mammals.

This is possibly the only cruise of its type, where we don't go to the dolphins, they come to us - something that has taken many cruises to achieve.

Swimming with wild dolphin so close to Adelaide city, why not be TEMPTED!

Money Back Guarantee

Because this gulf is home to over a thousand common and bottlenose dolphins, we are able to offer a money back guarantee. If you do not get into the water to swim with the dolphins for whatever reason, we will refund the difference between the watch and the swim. (Direct bookings only, unless otheriwse specified)

Wild Dolphin Swim Interaction Awareness

Temptation Sailing offers customers the special experience of viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat. As with any wild animals no guarantees can be made. While dolphins are naturally curious creatures and generally love playing around the boat and swimmers, the interaction is different on each cruise. Temptation Sailing’s experienced crew guarantee dolphin sightings on each cruise or a full refund, however, we can not guarantee duration and quality of the dolphin interaction.


Dolphin Swim Physical Requirements:

As we operate a wild dolphin swim experience at times getting in and out of the water can be fast paced, therefore it is a requirement that anyone participating in the dolphin swim would be able to get in and out of the water with little assistance.

We also use a floatation line during the swim, so upper body strength is required to hold onto the line while the boat may be moving at a slow pace. 

The swim is not reccommended for people who are not comfortable using a mask and snorkle and having their heads in the water, if this is the case we suggest the dolphin watch may be more enjoyable.

The dolphin swim is not available for those who have a pace maker, unfortunately the shark shields can cause disruptions.

If you have any question reagrding these requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0412 811 838.

Shark Shield

Please note that at the end of our swimmers lines we use Shark Shields™. These are electronic shark deterrents that creates a unique protective electrical field around the swimmers. For more information, please visit the website www.sharkshield.com.

Please also note that we have been using these devices for over 9 years and the electronic field does not affect the dolphin interaction in any way.
