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!

"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.
