Cruise up the Hastings, viewing dolphins on the way, eat the fish and chips dinner or the picnic lunch.
Do a whale watching cruise off shore or try the Chinese junk cruise. The choice is infinite and the views always changing.

A wonderful experience. We saw so many whales up close, spouting, diving, breeching. They were close enough that you could almost reach out and touch them!!! John, our guide was informative and quickly located the whales in two different locations. An amazing experience seeing these majestic creatures for a small prices with Port Macquarie Cruise Adventures.

Our whale watching trip was given to us as a wedding present & we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
We were very impressed with how the skipper placed the boat in the best position possible for us all to see the magnificent whales at play without intruding on their territory.
We highly recommend this company to anyone considering a whale watching adventure.

We did the 90min whale watching cruise and had a great time. We should have booked ahead as we missed out on the 9am cruise. But they could fit us in a 11am so we spent the morning on the town green while we waited. There was a noticeable difference in the choppiness of the water as the morning went on but it wasn't a problem.
Even the boat ride out and back was a lot of fun and the kids in particular thought it was great.
We saw quite a number of whales close to the boat and even in the few quiet patches we could still make out their blows in the distance.
A previous reviewer mentioned asking for the RIB if possible... we went on the other boat (Discovery) which is slightly more closed in but I'm actually glad we did. It had more shade and we were also able to ride up the front on the railed-in bow which was really cool!
We got a family ticket for $138 which is slightly better than the full individual price so it's not a cheap way to spend the morning but still a special experience.
