Jervis Bay: 1.5-Hour Dolphin Cruise

1. Jervis Bay: 1.5-Hour Dolphin Cruise

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.

It was a very nice trip at 9.30 AM. We saw a lot of dolphins and also the crew members were really friendly. I would recommend taking the earliest trip due to overcrowdin on the boat, but that is just my opinion and has nothing to do with the doing of the crew members.

Beautiful afternoon, the excitement and anticipation at watching humpback whales ride along side in the ocean was so uplifting. The crew were friendly and helpful. We decided even if we didn't see any whales the trip out to the ocean was totally worth it.

Very friendly staff and an awsome captain who went out of his way to make a disabled client feel special by having him in the cabin with him.

The guides were friendly and informative. They made sure we saw dolphins as well as whales. It was an excellent experience

10/10! The staff were fabulous! The cruise was everything we expected and more! Highly recommend.
