The fast, fun, and most scenic Dolphin cruise exploring the Port Stephens Marine Park!

Explore the natural beauty of the Port Stephens Marine Park, onboard the MV Osprey, our 24m fast super cat eco-vessel, designed with sustainability in mind. Your journey starts by searching for our resident Bottlenose Dolphins that call our beautiful Port Stephens’ waterways home. This cruise offers incredible viewing opportunities onboard to see the dolphins in their natural habitat. While cruising offshore, keep your eyes out as we may find penguins, seals, turtles and sea birds.

Venture across to Jimmy’s beach, take in the spectacular views looking out towards Yacaaba and Tomaree headlands before heading offshore and exploring Murphy’s gap and Cabbage Tree Island if the weather allows us. Cruising back along the stunning shores of Shoal Bay, catch a glimpse of the boats launching at Little Beach, before returning back to Nelson Bay, showing you Nelson Head to Fly Point, one of the region’s most popular snorkelling and diving spots.
