Dolphin Watch Cruises was one of the first Dolphin and Whale Watching companies to begin operations in Australia and has now been cruising Jervis Bay for over 30 years!
Dolphin Watch Cruises’ commitment to, and experience in, responsible and sustainable dolphin and whale watching has been rewarded with over 30 local and state tourism awards and has earned the reputation as the leading cruise company on the South Coast of NSW.
Jervis Bay is home to over 100 bottlenose dolphins, meaning visitors can view dolphins inside the bay year round. These friendly and curious creatures love to play in the wake of the boat so it is very common to see them up close and personal.
From May to November every year, the mighty Humpback Whales migrate to the east coast of Australia. With Jervis Bay pointing so far out of the coast, it is one of the best places in Australia to view them, especially on the southern migration.
Scenic cruises of the bay are also on offer and visitors may be lucky enough to spot other wildlife that calls Jervis Bay home, such as Little Penguins, Sea Eagles, Albatross or playful Fur Seals.
From $85 to $220
Jervis Bay plays host to two of the biggest seal colonies in NSW. Both are situated outside the heads to Jervis Bay but both are easily accessible with our new vessel, Eco Extreme.
The colony to the north contains up to 40 seals whilst the colony to the south is slightly smaller at approximately 30 seals. Both colonies offer fantastic viewing opportunities to see these ‘dogs of the sea’.
If the 300 foot cliffs don’t impress then there are always the deep inlets, the caves, the irregular rock formations and the abundance of wildlife that habitat along the cliffs!
This Cruise is available for Private Charter for a minmum of 20 passengers.

The Jervis Bay whale watching season is one of the longest in NSW, and with the sheltered waters providing a much needed rest for the calves on their long journey home, it also provides some of the best calm water viewing to be had. Multiple sightings are the norm, especially on the southern migration, with the record to date being over 100 individual whale sightings on one cruise in the last whale season! On this 2 hour whale watching cruise, you’ll be able to grasp just how enormous these majestic creatures are, and if you’re lucky, you may spot some resident bottlenose dolphins along the way!
