Broome, Western Australia
Enjoy an afternoon cruising Broome’s tranquil waters and be mesmerized by our growing population of 35,000 humpback whales.
3 - 4 Hours | Morning Cruises
Relax on a morning discovery as we search for one of Australia’s largest populations of snubfin dolphins and an array of marine life in Roebuck Bay. Spot snubfin dolphins or bottlenose dolphins socialising and having fun in the sun on your morning dolphin cruise. Depending on the seasons, you could catch a glimpse of the graceful manta rays or watch turtles bobbing their heads on the water.
If time allows, add a bit of adventure to the end of your wildlife encounters. Have a go at swimming in the boom net. Boom netting involves securely riding within the edges of a large net that is attached to the rear of a boat. Our vessel ‘Orcaella’ will slowly cruise along the shallows of Roebuck Bay as you hop into the net. The boom net will drag you through the water whilst holding on and enjoying a refreshing swim.
Swimming is only permitted during certain times of the year when water conditions are suitable. This activity requires a reasonable level of fitness, and you must be a competent swimmer. Children under the age of 12 years must be accompanied by an adult.
If you are looking for some things to do in Broome, this morning dolphin cruise should be added to your Broome bucket list. Whatever month you choose to cruise Roebuck Bay, Western Australia, there is bound to be some friendly dolphin, turtle or dugong ready to say g’day.
Roebuck Bay is an incredibly diverse ecosystem and its extensive seagrass meadows are home to a myriad of marine life. We often refer to the bay as a food generating machine and it is this that allows it to support so much marine life all year round.
