2Hr Splash ‘N Slide Dolphin Cruise

Here’s how you can enjoy two hours of non-stop fun in the heart of Nelson Bay, Port Stephens. Join this thrilling Splash ‘N Slide dolphin watching cruise where you can meet the resident Bottlenose Dolphins, before sliding into the waters for a refreshing swim! It is the perfect experience for all you pro swimmers!

Head to the open waters of Port Stephens from Nelson Bay, where you can watch the playful bottlenose dolphins in action. Watch them play, communicate and go about their business from the comfort of your boat, with the stunning Tomaree and Yacaaba headlands as backdrop.

The Captain adds to your dolphin sighting experience with his live, informative commentary.

You’ll be cruising on the fast and agile catamaran, MV Spirit, with two all-weather walk-around decks and a licensed bar. The vessel also has a boom net and a waterslide, which you can make use of during the final half of your experience.

The cruise anchors at one of the local bays to activate the water slide. Slide down straight into the waters where you can have fun swimming, or enjoy the thrill of boom netting on your way back to the marina. Only confident swimmers are encouraged to slide down to the open waters.

When all’s said and done, you’ll need that energy refuel. Head straight to the licensed bar on board to purchase yummy snacks and drinks. Be sure to be in casual, comfy clothing and footwear!
