Out of The Blue Adventures expertise, include Whale & Dolphin Watching, Eco Scenic Cruises, Private Charters/Educational Groups & facilitating Research Programs with our Marine Biologist. Our focus is to provide unique, first-class & unmatched experiences out of Ballina’s Richmond River and along the coast between Ballina & Byron Bay. Our purpose built eco vessel can take up to 20 passengers. To ensure a high standard of service, our staff consists of a qualified Marine Biologist, experienced skipper & customer service specialist.
We are also proud sponsors of various research projects, including Dolphin Research Australia’s, Healthy Waterways-Healthy Dolphins Project! Out of The Blue Adventures is excited to have the opportunity to directly help the vulnerable bottlenose dolphin communities that use the estuaries in Northern New South Wales; and more specifically those that rely on the Richmond River. These dolphins are particularly vulnerable to decline from exposure to dense human activities and habitat degradation, which can lead to disease, injury and mortality.
We offer our support to Dolphin Research Australia by providing our vessel for surveys in the Richmond River and field research assistance from our Marine Biologist. Together we can reach the goal of understanding the status and health of local dolphin communities and help to provide for their future protection.
Out of The Blue Adventures will also be part of the Dolphin Watchers program. Contributions through this program assists Dolphin Research Australia to monitor dolphin populations in the region. Our Marine Biologist will share in-depth knowledge on current findings from these research projects to our guests on board our tours, as well as educating students through school & university group charters.
Our modern eco vessel provides 360 degrees viewing for all passengers. It’s unique hull design ensures a smooth ride in all cruising conditions, for up to 20 guests. Our purpose built, state of the art vessel allows our guests to explore areas along our stunning coastline, only accessible by boat. This makes it perfect for our Byron Bay boat cruises, dolphin & whale watching.
We have an unwavering personal and professional commitment to the environment, Cape Byron Marine Park and surrounds. We operate all our Byron Bay boat cruises under the ethos of minimal impact and to maintain and protect the natural environment and sanctuaries visited.
During our Byron Bay boat tours, our on-board marine biologist will provide an interpretive talk, which educates guests in marine conservation and the natural environment they are experiencing.
