This report focuses on one component of a wider study of tourist-dolphin interaction and includes an Industry Manual, available as a separate hardcopy. The wider study consisted of a quantitative survey, with a sample of 1300 shore and boat-based visitors, and a population survey of 230 swim tour participants. It also included qualitative input from staff members at the Dolphin Discovery Centre, Koombana Bay, Bunbury, Western Australia, with regards to management issues. Included with this report will be an industry focused best practice manual concentrating specifically on the procedures of dolphin swim-tour operations.
