Located on the shores of beautiful Shoalwater Bay, Perth Wildlife Encounters (formerly Rockingham Wild Encounters) operates a ferry service to Penguin Island and a range of eco cruises that visit the local wildlife and take in the scenic highlights of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park.
Swim with wild Dolphins
An exhilarating wildlife encounter that will stay with you forever! Perth Wildlife Encounters has been operating the multi award winning Swim with Wild Dolphins Cruise since 1989. There are over 200 local bottlenose dolphins that live amongst the sheltered waters of Rockingham's bays & islands that they’ve come to know as friends. They don’t perform tricks and they aren't fed, you simply spend some time enjoying each other’s company!
Penguin Island Ferry & Cruises
Blessed with white sandy beaches and surrounded by crystal clear waters, Penguin Island lies a five minute ferry ride away in the heart of the ruggedly spectacular Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. The wildlife is the star attraction. Enjoy a cruise to see wild dolphins and rare Australian sea lions before getting up close with the world’s smallest penguins! Island rangers present penguin feedings at 10.30am, 12.30pm & 2.30pm daily. Getting here is easy with ferries departing hourly from 9am to 3pm. Spend as long, or as little as you like to swim, snorkel, picnic and explore the nature trails and beaches before catching a return ferry at your leisure.
