At Jervis Bay Wild, one question we are often asked is “are my kids old enough for an eco cruise?” The answer is a resounding YES. We have guests of all ages on our cruises. In fact, we offer special rates for children & pensioners, and allow kids under 2 to join us free of charge. No child (or adult!) is too young or too old to get something amazing out of a boating tour in stunning Jervis Bay. And here’s why:
Go On An Adventure
A Jervis Bay Wild eco cruise is a true adventure. On our dolphin cruise, you’ll spot heaps of our resident bottlenose dolphins, swimming right up alongside our vessel. You’ll be regaled with tales of the bay’s history and growth, even discovering some of its rich Aboriginal legends. Kids who join our tours are always very engaged in learning about the area. They love the stories of Jervis Bay’s people, animals, and landscape. Being at sea and experiencing the rugged and gorgeous coastline is a breathtaking journey–an adventure your children will be talking about for years to come.
Calling All Animal Lovers
No matter your age, if you love wildlife, an eco cruise is the perfect way to get a closer look at our local fauna in their natural habitats. On our seal colony eco cruise, you’ll laugh as you watch the Australian fur seals rolling on the rocks, gliding through the water, and chattering communicatively together. On every tour, you’ll have the opportunity to spot any number of species in the water, on land, or in the air. Numerous seabirds pass by on the average cruise day, and our past guests have spotted sharks, turtles, rays, and more.
Families & Boom Netting
For parents of older children and teenagers, a great option might be our boom netting cruise. This tour includes the usual wildlife spotting, historical anecdotes, and spectacular scenery, but also includes something with a little more “thrill.” Riding in the churning waters behind our vessel, you’ll sit inside a large and secure boom net, allowing you a truly fun ride and the chance to get super wet! For families and children looking for a unique summer experience right IN the bay, boom netting can’t be beat.
An Experience for All Ages
Kids really do love our eco cruises. In fact, kids make up a very large portion of our guests. One of the great things about our tours is that they are accessible and enjoyable for people of all ages. There’s something that will be memorable for everyone, so grab your cameras, grab your family and friends, and hop aboard one of our amazing voyages. We have cruises operating year-round, so there’s always something going on in the bay.
