Where are we going today?
There is something really magical about the first time you see a beautiful, playful dolphin at home in the wild! Dolphin Watch Cruises Jervis Bay can give you that opportunity! The company have been operating for over 21 years, and offer daily dolphin watch cruises where you can go out into the HUGE ocean and look for these amazing little creatures!
From May to November, they also offer incredible cruises to go and spot whales! Have you ever seen a whale in the ocean before? If they push themselves out of the ocean (that's called Breaching) then you can see them in all their glory!
Whales migrate to the places in the world they feel is best for them at that particular time of year, and during the Southern migration, whales head back home en route through Jervis Bay - and this is where YOU come in!
Take pictures, watch the whales interact with each other, and some even interact with the boat! They are just as curious as you.
There are a number of tours to choose from, so you can pick one to suit your family. They range from 1.5 hours to 4 hours, and even have fun themed ones like the Summer Twilight BBQ Cruise, and the Extreme Hidden Secrets! What kind of cruise is that? We can't tell you... (it's a secret!)
They hold seasonal and special events for you to enjoy too, and Jervis Bay is famous for its sandy beaches so really make a day of it and spend the rest of your day enjoy the beach, looking out into the ocean knowing what's out there!

trip was excellent. My husband sister and I were interested to explore the marlborough sounds and learn more about the history and wildlife. The trip was very professional,enjoyable and informative. We went on the afternoon tour which included a wonderful hours visit to the Motuara island bird sanctuary. We saw dolphins seals many seabirds penguins and learned so much about the history of the marlborough sounds. It was very beautiful. We highly recommend this tour.
