Wild and unique "One Tour - Two Amazing Experiences"
Unfed, untrained, totally wild, a place where the Lions of the sea and their close friends, bottlenose dolphins, will choose to interact with you on their own terms.
The "call of the wild" echoes around you as you are literally welcomed into a water world of pure magic by the very things that live in the sea.
Established and in operation since 1992, this is an in the wild interactive tour that is second to none. We are South Australia's first and original sea lion and dolphin swim experience. For us to be able to give the chance of making dreams come true and for ourselves to share this with others is a lifestyle of choice. Now after more than two decades of operation, and in generations now of sea lions and dolphins, we still enjoy this interaction and would love to share it with you.

Fowlers Bay - "Way of the Whales" -
Our swim tours may close for the winter months, but the southern Australian winter months opens the door for another amazing marine adventure in the "Way of the Whales" Take the time out and go on a close up and personal whale watching tour with Rod and Simone at Fowlers Bay onboard their vessel "Asherah" which is close by the whale viewing platform at the Head of the Bight, in fact you need to pass by the Fowlers Bay turn off on your way if you are heading west and if you are heading East, Fowlers Bay is only about an hour and a half drive from the platform.
As with our tours, nothing is guaranteed as "Mother Nature is as Mother Nature does" no one day or tour is ever the same, but in this Rod and Simone in their passion for the Southern Wright Whales will give you the very best they can on the day. Not only may you see the Southern Wright Whales and their young, but you may be lucky enough to see Humpback Whales (which are my favourites) as well on the same tour along with many other marine dwellers that live in the very rich aquatic bounds of the Great Australian Bight.
Tours this season will be starting on the 1st July, if not a little sooner as this depends on the whales, ending when the whales leave and start their migration back south towards the end of September or early October. Closure depends on the whales, if they stay a little longer, so will Rod and Simone.

Fowlers Bay being remote has limited accommodation. Fowlers Bay has a caravan park, so can suggest that you hire a caravan or a campervan and take that weeks leave and discover the wonderful coastline of the Eyre Peninsula on your way home or, if you don't have enough time you could fly to Ceduna from Adelaide with REX airlines and stay at Ceduna which has motels, hotel and caravan parks. Fowlers Bay is around an hour and a half from Ceduna, so this makes a nice day out on a "Winters" week away.
