This cruise has a very high success rate in dolphin sightings, boomnet rides, entertaining and informative commentary and scenic harbour cruise including spectacular Tomaree and Yacaaba headlands.

This cruise offers an exceptional opportunity for guests to witness the playful and intelligent nature of dolphins. Additionally, guests can enjoy the thrill boom netting ride. Throughout the cruise, knowledgeable and entertaining commentary is provided, enhancing the overall experience for guests.

The cruise also offers a picturesque view of the harbour, including the awe-inspiring Tomaree and Yacaaba headlands, a truly memorable and scenic journey.

What’s the difference Dolphin Discovery Cruise, the Dolphin Watch Eco Adventure and Splash and Slide Dolphin Cruise?

  • Our Dolphin Watch & Eco Adventure (1.5hr) explores off shore and passes Tomaree and Yacaaba headland, we explore Murphy’s gap and the outer islands of Port Stephens, whereas the other cruises stay inshore. The MV Osprey is the fastest vessel in our fleet, meaning we can find dolphins faster, and spend more time with them while covering more ground, however the MV Osprey is not equipped with a boomnet.
  • Dolphin Discovery Cruise (1.5hr) has the twist and twirl slide that lands into the boomnet while in motion. This cruise stays inshore while searching for our resident bottlenose Dolphins
  • Splash and Slide Dolphin Cruise (2hr) stops to activate the slide which lands into the open waters. The boomnet is activated on the return journey to the marina. We recommend confident swimmers for this cruise if they wish to utilise the slide.
