Sydney Dolphin Watching Tours, Cruises, Watch & Swim, Australia NSW
Most tours from Sydney last for half a day and are suitable for all ages and fitness levels. You can choose between tours where you remain on the boat and watch for dolphins, or there are also tours where you can enter the water and swim with these magnificent animals. For tours where you swim with dolphins, wetsuits and snorkels are supplied. You will receive instruction from a qualified dolphin expert and you will be supervised whilst in the water.
Bottlenose dolphins are commonly seen along the NSW coast and two of the best locations for dolphin spotting are Jervis Bay on the South Coast and Port Stephens, just north of Newcastle. Dolphins are also sighted in the Great Lakes region and dolphin watching tours are run from all these locations.
Take a day trip to Port Stephens and enjoy getting up close with the more than 100 bottlenose dolphins that call this place home. An added benefit of this tour is that you can also combine it with the whale watching tour, as Port Stephens is also one of the places that the migrating humpback whales pass through.
Jervis Bay is home to 120 bottlenose dolphins. This not only means that there’s a high chance you will spot a dolphin, it also works because you can take a tour at any time of the year. A tour to Jervis Bay will take you on a huge catamaran with three decks and five glorious viewing platforms for your convenience. Many tours are inclusive of complimentary tea and snacks.
Make sure you bring your own bathers, towel and sunscreen as these are not provided by the tour. You are welcome to bring your camera and take as many photos as you like.
