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.

We went on the sunset cruise as a family and had a great time. My dad and husband also went on the deep sea fishing trip that they enjoyed.

Our professional skipper got us safely and calmly through large swell and with the help of their spotter found us whales to view we were very happy.

A really great time, whales coming right up to boat- a marvellous experience. Enjoyed whole outing with the skipper passing on information not only about the whales but also the local coastline. The highlight of our trip - thankyou.
