Cruising with dolphins traditionally involves the mammals driving in a red convertible, decked out with leather and sunnies, flapping their little fins while gasping for air as they forget they live in the water, not land. Get up close and personal with these intelligent mammals in their natural element with today’s deal: $17.50 for a 2-hour cruise viewing Bottlenose dolphins and secluded beaches aboard a cosy boat from the award-winning Dolphin Watch Jervis Bay (a $35 value).
Dolphin Watch Cruises has been operating in Australia for over 20 years, bringing humans closer to the natural wonders of Jervis Bay. The company has won numerous local and state tourism awards and prides itself on being sustainable having earned a dual Advanced ECO accreditation.
For an intimate experience on the Bay, hop aboard ‘Discover,’ a brand new, award-winning 38-foot luxury catamaran, designed for smaller groups of about 30 people allowing easy viewing for dolphins and secluded beaches. Dolphins or jumping flapping mammals that chase fish, jump with gay abandon and dance with the waves, have a universal appeal embodying freedom, joy and a mysterious power that can trigger happiness and healing for humans. There is evidence that dolphins trigger the healing process in humans by boosting the production of T-cells and endorphins.
Located an easy 2.5 hours from Sydney and Canberra on the New South Wales coastline and with some of the best beaches in the world, Jervis Bay’s unspoiled paradise is the perfect place to brush shoulders with one of nature’s most adorable creatures.
