Go dolphin spotting on a sailing cruise around Nelson Bay, Port Stephens - the perfect place in Australia to observe dolphins in the wild and home to around 150 bottlenose dolphins.
Discover the huge bottlenose dolphin population off the coast of Port Stephens on this exciting sailing cruise around Nelson Bay. For 1.5 hours you’ll explore the beautiful waterways, looking out for dolphins and riding in the bow-net or boom-net if you’re up for it.
Just north of Sydney, Port Stephens is home to a large population of migrating dolphins and other marine life between November and April each year. Head out on board a comfortable 52 foot sailing catamaran with a spacious deck for dolphin watching and 360-degree views. You can stay dry and watch from the deck or in the bow-net, or bring your swimwear and jump into the boom-net and hold on tight for a wild ride.
This is an exciting opportunity to get close to the dolphins, and this cruise runs with a 99% dolphin sighting success rate plus a guarantee. If conditions allow, you’ll hoist the sails for your way back to the marina to wrap up your adventure.
