Port Stephens: Snorkel With Wild Dolphins

1. Port Stephens: Snorkel With Wild Dolphins

Your dolphin adventure begins at d'Albora Marina, Nelson Bay at 6:15 AM. Once you've checked in and been fitted with your wetsuit, mask and snorkel, the vessel leaves the dock and travels out through the heads of Nelson Bay. Whilst traveling out to the Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park, you'll be trained in the swim protocols and given a snorkel briefing (if swimmer option selected). Once the dolphins have been located and their behavior monitored and found to be favorable for a swim, the the first group of swimmers enters a net at the bow of the vessel, all the while attached with a safety lanyard to the catamaran. The vessel will stop while your group (and your divemaster) enter the water - it will then begin to move slowly forward. The dolphins will swim back and forth between the bows of the vessel, quite often within a meter of the swimmers and seemingly fascinated by the strange creatures being towed in the water behind them! You'll be so close to the dolphins, it will be just like being a part of the pod! You can of course also just observe the dolphins from the boat without entering the water.

What people are saying about Port Stephens

It was amazing ! This experience is awesome ; I highly recommend. All the staff is very nice and kind. They are very environmental friendly; which is important during a tour like this. They give lots of information about dolphins. and the swim with dolphin is breath taking :) the boat was also very nice.

What an amazing experience we loved it. They are very good with the lead up and smooth transition into the ride. By the end of it we were riding up and down sand dunes it was brilliant. Worth every cent

Great fun! Very professionally run, guides very helpful and accommodating of differing levels of rider competency. Would absolutely recommend

It was a solid 1hour tour and the best part was you don’t need prior riding experience to do this. Was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend.

Amazing experience and the crew/dive team were fantastic. Such a wonderful experience, highly recommended.
