Our crew will determine whether there was adequate dolphin sighting during your cruise. This will be confirmed to all guests at the end of your tour and noted in our records. It can also be checked retrospectively with our Booking Office.

Should a dolphin sighting not occur and you wish to use your Dolphin Guarantee to return, you are free to make another booking within 12 months of your original tour date, subject to availability.
You may return as many times as you wish until you are on a tour where there is a dolphin sighting.
Return bookings must be made by phone – by calling our Booking office on 08 9581 1242. Dolphin Guarantee bookings are non-transferable and can only be made for passengers who made the original tour booking.
