Rockingham Dolphins

Rockingham Dolphins – The Story.

Terry Howson grew up playing on the waters and beaches of Western Australia’s Indian Ocean. In 1989 he had a dream to befriend and swim with wild dolphins. He was determined to win their trust through friendship, rather than offering them food as a coercion.

Terry set aside one year to visit the dolphins on a daily basis to learn everything he could about their habits and behaviour. It took seven months of
trying to join them in the water before he got his first underwater glimpse of a curious young female who he now knows as Logo.

As time went on, Terry’s underwater interactions with Logo became more frequent as her trust in his friendship strengthened. Gradually other dolphins became curious of the new visitor in their world and also started to interact regularly. It soon became obvious that Terry had the opportunity to create a truly unique eco-tourism adventure.

There are two fantastic ways for you to enjoy the dolphins. For the ultimate dolphin experience, join our Dolphin Swim Tour or enjoy their magical sights and sounds from on board the Dolphin Watch Tour.
