What you need to know

Experience the best Port Stephens has to offer on this 1.5 hour dolphin sailing cruise with an exciting boom netting experience in Nelson Bay. The region is home to a population of over 100 local bottlenose dolphins and on this sailing cruise you’ll enjoy 360 degree views aboard the spacious 52 foot sailing catamaran, ‘Imagine’.

Watch on as the resident dolphins dash in and out of the water with grace alongside the vessel. The 1.5 hour cruise also offers guests the chance to take a fun ride in the boom net or stay dry and relax on deck as you explore the famous NSW marine park. If conditions allow, you'll even get to hoist the sails to enjoy a scenic cruise back to shore.
