Nice and easy cruise, friendly staff. Takes off from the main city center and dolphins are not guaranteed but it’s a good experience! Plenty of food and shop options at the port Stephens local and lots of other activity nearby / needs a car though

Didn't get to see many dolphins the first time. Got a standby voucher and went again the second day. Good service, nice boat.

Great cruise, awesome Staff, very informative, lovely cocktails, well worth it

Good experience, can see dolphin closer. Comfortable for family.

Amazing to see the dolphins and stop and take photos.
