About Port Macquarie Cruise Adventures
** 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.
