What Kind of Dolphins live in Jervis Bay?

What Kind of Dolphins live in Jervis Bay?

In Jervis Bay the dolphins we most commonly see Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops aduncus).

 

The type of dolphin found here is one of the most well-known Dolphin species, thanks to films like ‘Flipper’ and are often seen in captivity.

 

Jervis Bay is so special that we have about 80- 100 bottlenose dolphins that are FREE to swim, feed and live where ever they like, these are ‘residents’ of Jervis Bay.  Meaning they live here all year round, most of the Dolphins we see are in nursery pods, family groups and bachelor pods.

 

When we find pods of 10-20 dolphins and on some days 30-40 or even more! Every encounter is different and always full of opportunities to learn about Dolphins, Jervis Bay Marine Park and our beautiful oceans.

We have Dolphin Cruises Every day!

"Had a great 2 hours on the boat."

Had a great 2 hours on the boat. the weather was good and the sea was calm. the captain found a group of 10 dolphins as soon as the boat left the harbour. at one point the boat was nearly on top of them and my wife got some photos. We also saw a sea eagle! Free coffee, tea and water available.
