When we arrive in Port Stephens, it’s time to see what the area really has to offer with the option to climb aboard for an unmissable dolphin spotting boat. Keep your eyes peeled for the 150 bottlenose dolphins that call this part of Australia home. Choose to view the magnificent creatures from the viewing deck, or in summer for the more adventurous you can also get even closer via the boom net attached to the back of the boat.
If you’re traveling between May and November, you’ll be able to upgrade to a whale watching cruise as well. The boat will take you further out where you can watch the annual migration of thousands of Humpback and Minke Whales takes place.
