Wild Dolphin Watch at Sydney Port Stephens


Wild Dolphin Watch

One of the best dolphin watching cruises will ever experience! Not only get to watch wild offshore dolphins in their natural environment, also get to watch as these inquisitive and energetic oceanic dolphins come and join the vessel for their own 'people watch'!

Won't believe your eyes! This is unlike all other dolphin encounters, as the dolphins choose to join the vessel and move through the open ocean just metres from the vessel! Afterwards return home knowing that the dolphins remain wild, unharmed and free in their natural environment!
