Byron Bay Dolphin Cruise

4.5 based on all time ratings

Dolphins are curious and intelligent creatures that love meeting and greeting people. In Byron Bay, there’s a resident pod of Bottlenose dolphins that attracts a large number of visitors. 

You will be cruising on board ‘Out of the Blue’, a purpose-built vessel providing 360° views of Byron Bay. With its unique hull design, the vessel ensures a smooth and comfortable ride. This two-hour cruise is the perfect opportunity to see these magnificent beings from up close. 

The Ballina and Byron Bay coast is home to a resident pod of Bottlenose Dolphins which number between 80 and 120, depending on the time of the year. The dolphins are sure to thrill passengers of all ages, giving them an experience to remember. During the cruise, you will get to see the resident dolphins at play in their natural habitat, while the marine biologist on board shares interesting information about the local pods, their habits and behaviours. You can enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the pleasant weather while you’re on board. Don’t forget your cameras to click some stunning pictures of the dolphins at play. We guarantee that you will see dolphins on this incredible tour; a free return trip is offered in the event of not spotting a dolphin. 

Out of the Blue Cruises is a privately owned business that specialises in premier eco cruises and tours. They are also the proud sponsors of Dolphin Research Australia and the Healthy Waterways–Healthy Dolphins Project.
