What you can expect

Grab your swimsuit and towel as you get ready for an intimate swim with wild dolphins in their natural environment in Koombana Bay near Bunbury with the Dolphin Discovery Centre. Explore and visually immerse yourself in the local marine environment as you learn all about the Bottlenose Dolphins that inhabit the region.

As an Advanced Eco Tourism attraction, the Discovery Centre does not hold captive dolphins on display but rather, you'll be meeting the wild dolphins of Koombana Bay to provide a window into the natural behaviours of the local population. The dolphin swimming tour operates in Summer from November to April with tours departing five days a week at 8am from the Dolphin Discovery Centre in Bunbury.
