Overview

** Whale watching May to November ** Port Macquarie Cruise Adventures operates several different styles of cruise boats and is one of the longest established cruise businesses in the region. Our largest boat, Discovery 2 (54 pax) was built for the Murray River. The shallow draft allows us to navigate to impossible places thru 2 national parks. See wetlands, endangered species of birds and dolphins on most trips.

This activity is simply amazing. Not to be missed! Furthermore, we had a judge misunderstanding on the phone with them, which they managed perfectly, giving us the best experience we could have had here!! Really, the team is gold and the whales are impressive :)

I'm giving this a 4 because I got sea sick. However this trip met expectations in that we saw a number of humpback whales, some of which were relatively near the boat. The trip took 1.5 hours, which was long enough to get a good...More
