About Byron Bay Dolphins
Dolphins communicate via a combination of whistles and clicks. The clicks are a form of echolocation, important for navigation, while the whistles are believed to serve social purposes such as identification, location, and expressing emotional states.
Dolphins name themselves soon after birth. That name is kept and recognised by other dolphins throughout their lifetime. Their gestation period is about a year with pregnancy occurring every 2-4 years. Dolphins don’t start breeding until they are between 8-10 years old making population replenishment slow. Slow replenishment only intensifies the importance of research, conservation, and habitat protection.
Dolphins are social creatures who build communities and develop strong bonds. These communities tend to be sexually segregated, and pods work together to raise the young. Unlike the humpback whale, dolphins don’t migrate, rather they mark out territories and use different areas for specific purposes. While dolphin watching in Byron Bay, you’ll likely see hungry dolphins hunting near the Richmond River mouth and Lennox Head’s offshore reefs.
We are proud sponsors of Dolphin Research Australia and the Healthy Waterways—Healthy Dolphins Project! These research and conservation projects work to protect vulnerable communities impacted by human activities and habitat destruction. We also provide our vessel for surveys and participate in the Dolphin Watcher’s Program that monitors dolphins in the region. We’re committed to eco-friendly tourism that is careful not to disrupt animals’ natural behaviours, environment, or migration patterns.
