The morning Dolphin Cruise is on the waters of the Great Sandy Straits by Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. Here we look for the bottlenose dolphins (aduncas) and the Australian humpback dolphins (sousa sahulensis), which is a lesser known species. Both of these species reside in small residential pods of up to 20 and are found around Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. The waters are also home to dugongs, turtles, seabirds and other marine life.

Our dolphin watching tours started back in December 1996 and we have maintained a 90% to 95 % success rate for finding the dolphins.

The bottlenose dolphin is the better known of the two species and we now have about 25 individuals we can recognised by their dorsal fin. We have been working on a photo id catalogue for the last couple of years.

The Australian humpback dolphin is a little bit smaller and a little harder to find and photograph them can be a difficult task but can be well worth it. Most guests have never seen this species before so it is always a good day when we see them.

The dugongs of the Great Sandy Straits have been heavily impacted upon in the recent years by floods down the Mary and Susan River systems and the loss of the sea grass beds. On the days that we encounter a dugong it is a great bonus for all on board.
