Thank you for your review and for choosing Blue Dolphin. We are fortunate to have resident dolphins in the Bay which makes for great viewing and we love to spoil our guests. Hope to see you again perhaps for whales next time.

Saw lots of dolphins coming up close to the boat, and was lucky to spot a turtle too in the crystal clear water. Magic way to spend a morning!

Thank you for joining us on Blue Dolphin. Winter in Hervey Bay is superb but even better when you are on the water and it is like glass. Hope to see you again one day.

We took our family of 4 (Mum, Dad, 3yo + 1yo) on board. The crew were very knowledgeable about the area and were therefore able to use their familiarity & expertise to find a pod of dolphins. It was amazing to watch them frolicing and fishing. The boat was clean and felt very
