About Rockingham Wild Encounters

Based on the shores of the spectacular Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, 45 minutes south of Perth, Rockingham Wild Encounters operates a ferry service to Penguin Island, and a range of cruises to get up close and personal with the local dolphins, sea lions and penguins.


Our tour options include:

Swim with Wild Dolphins

Our multi award-winning close encounter with the ocean’s most loved creature. This is a totally wild encounter on the dolphin’s terms and in their natural environment.

There are no tricks and no training: you just spend some time enjoying each other’s company.

Visiting Penguin Island

Penguin Island is a truly unique place and possibly Perth’s best kept secret!

White sandy beaches, calm crystal clear waters ideal for swimming and snorkelling and plenty of wildlife to see, best of all it’s only a 5 minute ferry ride away. It is home to WA’s largest colony of little penguins which visitors can meet at the Discovery Centre.

There are three feeding sessions daily at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm. Ferries depart hourly 9am – 3pm. Glass bottom boat, high speed adventure cruises and sea kayak tours to see wild dolphins, sea lions and the ruggedly spectacular islands depart daily.
