The Baird Bay sea lion and dolphin swim is a once in a lifetime experience that is not to miss. We saw this last minute on the internet, and decided to give it a go. We arrived about 20 minutes early, but that gave us much more time to prepare for the swim, and meet the staff. They gave us... More

I took three of my four kids on this Eco experience and we loved it. My youngest Boy who is six was too scared to get in but Alan made him feel safe on the boat so my 9 and 10 year old girls could snorkel with the sea lions and dolphins. Alan and his wife are amazing custodians of... More

sheer joy!... to be able to swim, interact and observe the sea lions is a blessing. Just the arrival of our boat bought about 20 sea lions (half) off the beach to come visit us. Once I got over the fact the waters were freezing I was able to wade in shore and stand in the shallows with these amazing... More

We visited Baird Bay after we heard about the opportunity to swim with dolphins and sea lions when in Monkey Mia - and, though really a remote spot, it is worth the visit! When we arrived, we were fitted in our wet suits (a good thing to wear, even at 42 degrees air temperature, as the water has not more... More
