We provide a 30 minute cruise along the coastline with our ecotour RIB. Visit the proposed Forresters Beach Marine Sanctuary with a qualified Marine Biologist on board to talk about any marine life that we see along the way and the features of this unique coastline. Dolphin watching is often a highlight.

Whale Watching Tour

*Available May to October

When the whales are migrating and seas are calm, we offer an extended one hourĀ  boat tour. This gives us plenty of time to get out whale watching and enjoy the majesty of the passing whale fleet. A Marine Biologist is on board to answer questions and help identify the species. We are the only dedicated whale watching boat operating at Terrigal and the Central Coast.
