Jervis Bay Marine Park

Jervis Bay Marine Park
 
If you are joining us on one of our cruises, you will be fortunate enough to be taking in the sights, sounds and smells that is Jervis Bay Marine Park.
 
Jervis Bay Marine Park was established in 1998 and covers approximately 215 km2 and spans over 100 km of coastline.
 
Our famously clear waters are a result of several factors, largely due to the joining of warm water from the East Australian Current and cooler water from the Bass Strait.
 
Jervis bay also experiences upwelling of cold, nutrient-rich waters from the nearby Continental Shelf, these combined currents flow clockwise around the bay.
 
These combined currents flush out Jervis Bay around every 24 days – give or take a few.
 
Jervis Bay Marine Park supports a diverse range of organisms from unique species of algae, over 210 reef fish species, not to mention Dolphins of course!

"The Most Amazing Whale Experience"

We were really lucky and saw everything - whales, dolphins and seals (I didn't see the seals, but it was pointed out on our return from the trip and I missed it). This is my first whale watching experience and it surely set the bar too high for my future whale watching trips. We saw a few adult whales and also a few baby ones - all playing around and showed off some fancy "tricks". They even "played" with us by swimming under our boat - making our boat rock side to side! They (and the dolphins) got extremely close to us.
