PORT STEPHENS ATTRACTIONS | DOLPHIN CRUISE NELSON BAY
Better known as the Dolphin Capital of Australia, Port Stephens is surrounded by National Parklands and Marine Sanctuaries and offers the experience of seeing animals in their natural environment, including the local bottlenose dolphins.
There are thirteen species of dolphins that live in Australian waters, though only one type of dolphin lives in one area all its life, the Bottlenose Dolphin. Around 100 to 150 bottlenose dolphins reside in Port Stephens and cruise boat operators can take you up close with these friendly mammals as they play on the bow wave off the front of the boat. If youre lucky you may be able to spot them from the shoreline or watch them play amongst the local surfers!
