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!

"A Great Afternoon on Jervis Bay"

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon on the Whale watch your on the big boat. We had planned to go on the short fast boat but they changed us to the tekin. All in all it was actually a good option for the afternoon. The staff were pleasant and there was basic tea and coffee served. We took some snacks which was recommended and a good idea. We saw at least 8 whales including some baby calves and enjoyed the scenery of the bay too. Worth it!
