Whale Watching Cruise - 3 Hours

Whale Watching Cruise - 3 Hours


  • Sail with Humpback Whales out of Port Stephens
  • Visit Southern Fur Seals and spot dolphins
  • Enjoy some of the most scenic landscapes

Head offshore to witness the magnificent Humpbacks as they swim and play amongst the islands of the Port Stephens Great Lakes Marine Park. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins, flocks of oceanic sea birds and the colony of Southern Fur Seals that often laze on the rocks at Cabbage Tree Island!

What's Included?

  • 3 hour whale watching cruise
  • Informative and engaging commentary
  • Tea, coffee (self service)
  • Use of wet weather jacket if required

'Imagine' is a 54ft catamaran. Conditions permitting, the sails will be hoisted and you will be off to sail with the whales. It's so quiet you can hear them breathe! The catamaran allows for 360° viewing from its covered foredeck and comfortable cabin. There is also a licensed bar, with snacks and drinks available to purchase.

You will be hosted by an Advanced Eco-Accredited company, dedicated to the protection of dolphins and whales. In 2015, they were awarded 'Green Travel Leader' accreditation, making them one of just 104 companies in the country that can demonstrate commitment to environmental responsibility through 10+ years of ECO certification.

This experience is part of the Responsible range because they are ECO certified by Ecotourism Australia.

Dress Code

For winter cruises (whale watch), 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. For summer cruises, a light jacket is recommended. Guests wishing to enter the water should bring swimwear and a towel. Hats or sun protection are recommended on all cruises, even on overcast days.

Other Info

‘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. Even with our excellent sighting percentage occasionally we do not have encounters with whales and dolphins. In the event of a ‘miss’ we will honour our free return policy for our 3 hr Whale and Dolphin Watch Tour. We will send you an email after your cruise to notify you of the free return. Then simply email or call to rebook another time within 18 months, using your original cruise order number as the reference. Terms and Conditions apply
