This wildlife hotspot off the coast of Perth - in the area around Shoalwater Bay - can be experienced in its fullest with this gift voucher for a 90 minute combination of adventure style boating and wildlife viewing. The primary mission of the journey is to get up close and eye to eye with the local wild dolphins. You may see mothers looking after newborn calves, learn how they use stringrays to catch their dinner or see them spectacularly jumping out of the wake of the boat!

After spending some quality time with the dolphins, our return journey takes in the highlights of Shoalwater Bay, including ancient fossilized remnant Tuart Forest in Aladdin's Cave, Bird Island and see the Ospreys nest and Gull Rock. See the Australian sea lion colony located at Seal Island - the rarest species of sea lion in the world.

Fantastic day out.. Our group were lucky enough to see a baby dolphin only a day old. The crew were awesome and the boat ride was loads of fun. I highly recommend this tour.
