Exclusively operating between November and April each year, this two hour Splash and Slide Dolphin Cruise experience is a must for visitors to Port Stephens.

Home to over 160 resident Bottlenose dolphins, locals have dubbed this the Dolphin Capital of Australia!

Each dolphin watching tour has a high success rate of dolphin sightings, and includes boom net rides, inside and outside viewing areas, entertaining commentary and… a twist and twirl slide for the ultimate fun!

Starting from Nelson Bay Marina, you'll cruise through the spectacular headlands and eastern harbour while enjoying walks around the catamaran's twin-level decks and a licensed bar with snack food available or purchase.

A great activity for people of all ages, add some fun in the Port Stephens' sun to your next holiday!

Vessel: MV Spirit is a 60″ fast Stable Catamaran, with 2 walk around all weather viewing decks. Licensed bar with snack food available for purchase. A large boom net, water slide.

PLEASE NOTE: This cruise is seasonal and only available from November to April.

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.
