Full description
Discover the diversity of Australia’s marine beauty aboard a purpose-built boat, sailing for 2.5 hours through magnificent Byron Bay. After pickup from select accommodations in Byron Bay’s CBD, you’ll head off to the dock to board your eco-friendly vessel, meeting your marine biologist guides. Heading off towards Ballina, you’ll gaze at 360-degree views of the vast cliff faces, solitary islands, and hidden beaches, all the while learning about wildlife, the history of the area, and locals-only insights. As you sail comfortably through the pristine waters, keep your eyes peeled for a wide variety of sea life. Marvel at playful dolphins, surfing the waves coming off of the hull. Look for majestic sea turtles. If you’re lucky, you’ll even see one of the ocean’s most stunning creatures — the massive humpback whale. Cruising by Australia’s most easterly point, you’ll gaze upon the stately Cape Byron Lighthouse in all its glory. After your excursion, you’ll head back to the dock, to be transported back to your pickup point.

It was the perfect boat experience! I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday and he’s been living in Byron since 10 years and loved it! Best guides ever! We loved every second of it and seing the dolphins was incredible!
