Spend the day sailing around the stunning bay of Port Stephens on 54ft catamaran. Enjoy a snorkelling adventure at one of the beautiful coves with a dive master, spot the resident Bottlenose Dolphins along the way and marvel at the scenic coastline from the water. There's lots of fun for everyone!
Head out on a sailing adventure on the pristine waters of Port Stephens where there's lots of fun adventures and some serious relaxation to be had! The 'Imagine' is a 54ft sailing catamaran, designed as a model for eco-tourism. With a spacious, covered foredeck and a comfortable downstairs cabin, you can enjoy 360 degree viewing and plenty of space for the family to relax and have fun. As you sail through the bay, soak in the rays of the sun in the dry bow-net positioned close to the water, or go for a ride in the boom-net where you'll get wet.
Make sure to keep your eyes out for dolphins - you're guaranteed to see some on this throughout the day! If you're feeling more adventurous, enjoy some snorkelling in a protected cove at the stunning Cabbage Tree or Fingal Island, where a qualified dive master or snorkel guide will introduce you to the rich and ever-changing underwater world. You'll find an incredible array of marine life and vegetation - fish, sea urchins, soft corals and rays, all waiting to be discovered. Don't forget to take the time to relax, unwind and enjoy a drink from the licensed bar on board, whilst you take in some of the most scenic landscape along the NSW Coast.

‘Sea sickness’ can be different for individuals, making it difficult for us to advise on the matter. If you suffer from other types of motion sickness, such as on a plane or car, you might get seasick. PREVENTION is better than CURE. If you have concerns about seasickness we recommend you seek advice from a local pharmacy about preventatives prior to the cruise. We offer motion-sickness prevention for free onboard before the tour, however pharmacists recommend taking tablets 1 hour before a cruise
This cruise runs with a maximum of 47 people.
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider.
Please bring swimwear and towel. We recommend warm layers including a jacket. You can always take a layer off if you are too warm, but you can’t put on a layer you didn’t bring. Long pants and enclosed shoes are highly recommended. It is also a good idea to bring a water proof layer; not only does it keep you dry, it also protects you from the wind. Hats or sun protection are recommended on all cruises, even on overcast days.
This experience is located at DÁlbora Marina, Nelson Bay, in the Port Stephens region, located 2.5 hours drive north of Sydney.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
