Central Coast Things to Do


  • We welcome and support individuals and groups that have any form of disability.
  • We use a small tender to board the main vessel and good balance and resonable agility is required to move between the two.
  • The vessels will be moving with wave action as Terrigal is an ocean port.
  • There are steps to access the vessel, similar to climbing a small step ladder.
  • Hardys Bay tours have better jetty access but still require the ability to climb stairs.
  • Unfortunately none of the jetties and wharfs that we can use have wheelchair boarding facilities.
  • There are wheelchair accessible lookouts for land based whale watching at Terrigal.
  • Wheel chair accessible toilet facilities are available at the Terrigal location.
