swimming with dolphins

by sheltie

I'm visiting Perth next month and want to swim with dolphins. There appears to be two places that do this - Bunbury and Rockingham. Rockingham is a day tour from Perth, while Bunbury would require at least one overnight stay.

Has anyone swum with dolphins at these locations? Which is best?

Re: swimming with dolphins

by Green_Frog

Hi

I haven't swum with the dolphins in WA but when last in Perth I did notice signs for swimming with dolphins in Mandurah - which is a very beautiful town. It is only 1.25 hours drive from Perth City - Rockingham is less than 1 hours drive whereas Bunbury is close to 2 hours from Perth City.

The more south you go the cooler it will be which can be unpleasant pending you will visit Perth.

The train line in the south is still under construction so to do it on the cheap may not be that easy - the coach/bus is an option else an organised tour.

Check out - http://www.dolphins.com.au/ and do a google on the suburbs above for more detailed info.

Hope this helps

Many places do charters but I do not know of any that actually let you swim with the dolphins.
There are heaps of whales around now and getting on a boat to see them is well worth it.

If you put,'swimming with dolphins, Rockingham, Mandurah, Bunbury' into google, lots comes up. I believe there is more than one company offering trips.
It's not cheap!! Will be a couple of hundred dollars. I've not done it myself, but people I've known who have say it's amazing.
You'll find the sea will be plenty warm enough by November, unless of course you come from the tropics and expect the sea to be warm.

Travel Tips for Bunbury

Slip Slop Slap

by robertgaz

The sun down under can be fiercely hot and unrellenting causing one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. The Slip Slop Slap campaign started way back in the 80's encouraging Aussies to protect their skin by Slipping on a shirt, Slopping on some sunscreen and Slapping on a hat.

"I love this sunburnt country,
But not a sunburnt face.
So even on a cloudy day,
Slop on sunscreen just in case."

Hang gliding

by robertgaz

Because Bunbury faces a coastline with strong and dependable prevailing sea breezes, hang gliding is an exciting sports option here. The coastal dunes are high enough with plenty of car parks to launch yourself into the wide blue yonder.

1606-2006 Duyfken Voyage

by robertgaz

In 1606 the original Dutch ship "Duyfken" set sail from Banda in Indonesia in search of gold and trade to the fabled island of Nova Guinea.

2006 marks the 400th anniversary of that voyage and to remind us of these intrepid traders this replica ship will sail from Fremantle in WA across the Great Southern Ocean up the east coast of Australia. The journey ends in Sydney at the end 2006.

Building the replica ship "Duyfken" was led by Fremantle community leader Michael G Kailis and a local historian Michael Young, who arranged a group that became known as the "Duyfken 1606 Replica Foundation" which is a charitable foundation.

This foundation constructed the ship in Fremantle at a cost of $3.7 million to help tell the story of Australia's first recorded European visitors.

The "Duyfken" is in Bunbury from the 8th until the 14th of April, 2006. For a gold coin donation you climb onboard and wander around to get a feel of what life may have been like for these ancient mariners.

I have also added a travelogue with some more pictures of the "Duyfken".

Or better still... go for a swim

by robertgaz

When you get here find yourself a piece of beach and go swimming. snorkelling, surfing or whatever... it's never busy so finding your own bit of beach is easy.

I like to go body surfing which involves paddling as fast as you can with the wave to catch a ride... but do be careful of "dumpers"... which are those waves that pick you up and crash you toward the beach at an alarming speed with uncontrolable force... and you end up with a snoz full of water and your bathers full of sand!

Bunbury Courthouse

by robertgaz

Built in 1855, the limestone and shingle Bunbury Courthouse remains the oldest building in the Bunbury CBD and it is still in use today.

The building has been used as a courthouse, post office, bond store and police quarters before being used as a court administration building. Its role as a court finally ceased in 1984 when construction of the current courthouse was completed.
