The most unique look at the Beecroft Peninsula
This is the only cruise that takes you along the periphery of the thrilling Beecroft Peninsula. The towering cliffs here are undeniably impressive, and on the Jervis Bay Passage, you’ll be able to get close up and experience their height and might. Not only that, but the tour takes you inside the ancient and alluring sea caves themselves. This opportunity is so unique and gives you the palpable sense of being a sea explorer of olden times. No other wildlife cruise in the area offers that!
A fun ride in a rigid inflatable boat
The Jervis Bay Passage sails on a rigid inflatable boat, a low set vessel that brings guests closer to the water. Riding in this boat is so much fun, and it’s size and build allow us to navigate it through places where other vessels cannot manage. This provides you with a singular experience. When you spot wildlife from your spot in this vessel, you’ll have the feeling of being much closer to them, especially those coming up along the surface of the water, like our dolphins and whales.
THE CHANCE TO VIEW A VARIETY OF WILDLIFE
The Jervis Bay Passage is also an awesome choice because it introduces you to a wide range of marine life. The local bottlenose dolphins are almost always nearby on our tour and in whale watching season you will likely catch a glimpse of those majestic mammals as well. The Sea Coast Passage is also unique in that it takes you to visit a fur seal colony. The Australian fur seal will make you smile with its noises and its playful antics.
The best tour in Jervis Bay
The final reason to book on the Jervis Bay Passage is that we think it is probably one of the best (if not THE best) of the area’s wildlife cruises.
