Would You Like to be a Dolphin Watchers ?

-------------------------------------------------------
The River is indeed alive, not only teeming with Bottlenoses and birdlife but the personality of the river changes with every season and time, always welcoming, charming & enriching every kayaker that chance upon it !

Why not enjoy kayaking on the Swan River and be a volunteer dolphin watcher with Rivers Guardian program. We do sight Dolphins in the river every now and then. https://goo.gl/K86vyq
