Full description
Jervis Bay has been a Marine park for 18 years and is now one of the most unique and healthy ecosystems in Australia. That’s why the crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay and stunning unspoiled white sand beaches are home to over 100 bottlenose dolphins. Listen to the commentary about the history of Jervis Bay as you travel.  On this tour, you will have the privilege of watching these beautiful mammals. Discover pods of dolphins feeding around the reef systems, particularly Plantation Point and Callala. Sometimes they swim and race hundreds of meters to play on the bow. The Bottlenose dolphin is highly recognizable and known for its long snout and distinctive smile. Friendly and active, you will fall in love with them the moment that you lay eyes on them.

Just WOW! What an amazing service and experience. Not even 10 minutes into departure we were able to find a pod of dolphins greeting us without hesitation. It was our first time seeing dolphins in the wild! I never thought I’d be so excited to see them, but when I did, I made sure to take plenty of videos to capture the surreal experience. The staff were great and even offered to take photos of my partner and I. Do not hesitate to book this cruise, you will get your moneys worth plus more!

It was the best cruise experience I've ever had. It was meant to last 1,5 hours but lasted longer, and even with the bad weather we were able to see dolphins very closely. The crew was amazing so we are definitely coming back another day when it's not raining :)

A supposed hour and a half dolphin watch cruise turned into a fabulous 3 hour circumnavigation of Jervis Bay. We were right under Cape Perpendicular and even ventured out through the Heads to view the cliffs along the coast. Caught up with a pod of around 8 dolphins who rode our bow waves for about 15 minutes. Great trip, fabulous commentary. One recommendation- take your block out with you.
