        Friendly staff what a memorable experience
        Had the best time on the sunset cruise. Very friendly staff who go above and beyond to ensure all their patrons have the best time. Food and drinks were great and got to see a pod of dolphins magic.

        Huge thank you to Peter, Jodie & the crew for a really lovely sunset sail. The drinks & food just kept on coming! Super friendly service from all. Loved the intimate size with not as many people on board as other companies. Extra bonus for finding the dolphins :) Will definitely be sailing with you guys again! Thank you.

        Picturesque
        It was a picturesque trip with delicious view and many changes in the evening sky over Hervey Bay and the sound of the waves and fresh Autumn breeze. Lots of picture opportunities. This provider does not serve alcohol on the Good Friday but they provide other refreshments. Appetizers were tasty, crew were friendly and accommodating for the trip.

        Great cruise
        We had a great sunset sail with crew Anika and Peter. Lots of snacks and bubbles! Small group of 9 people. Peter gave us lots of info on Frasier Island. Very relaxing. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a sunset cruise in Hervy Bay.

        Private Sunset for 2
        What a great evening. Peter took us out for the sunset cruise and we had the yacht to ourselves as other people had cancelled or not turned up (without notifying Pete). Had the opportunity to see dolphins up close while we docked close to the harbour and the beautiful sunset. Pete & Casey provided lots of details regarding the dolphins and other things. Casey was a great host and looked after us ensuring that we had enough food & drink. Thanks for a wonderful trip.

        What a fabulous sunset cruise
        Honestly I was so impressed with this cruise, we will definitely be doing it again. I had heard so many people recommending it but but had yet to experience it for ourselves. Well I now know why everyone raves about it, I couldn't fault anything. Even without seeing any dolphins & the weather being over cast, it couldn't ruin the night. The staff on the boat were amazing, friendly, attentive & they make you feel very welcome. The drinks were plentiful & the food was good quality. Thank you for creating a top notch business that I'm happy to refer people to knowing they will enjoy it 👏 Keep up the great work!!!

        Thoroughly recommended by this local
        They often say to trust the locals when it comes to recommendations and in this case that advice is absolutely true. How lucky am I to live in beautiful Hervey Bay with sunset boat cruises like this on our doorstep. Pete and his team are amazing hosts, generous with food and drink, and so welcoming and accommodating. The boat is a beautiful catamaran and the sunsets are special. The smaller numbers catered for on this cruise means you have much more space to move around the boat and a more special experience.

        Best sunset cruise in the Bay
        Sunset cruise 3rd Feb. Once again a fantastic evening cruise aboard Blue Dolphin. Pete the Captain, and crew work tirelessly to make sure you have an enjoyable cruise. By far the best cruise in Hervey Bay.

        This is the second time I have done this sunset cruise in Hervey bay with Blue Dolphin. Such a beautiful boat and wonderful crew. A must do experience if you are coming to Hervey Bay. This one is the best small group too.

        Great service as always at Blue Dolphin Tours
        This was our 3rd time doing the sunset cruise and it never disappoints. Great service by friendly staff, plenty of food and free-flowing drinks. Unfortunately the weather didn’t want to cooperate so it wasn’t a great sunset, but it didn’t matter as it was still a great way to spend the evening. We have also done the dolphin cruise with this company with our teenage kids and this was also great. Easy to book online and prompt communication. Highly recommend.

      We took our children on the morning cruise and had a fantastic time. We saw dolphins and dugongs and swam in crystal clear seas off a sandbank. Dolphins, of course, aren't guaranteed however the crew spent considerable effort to find the dolphins, which then swam in and under the boat. Morning tea was provided and it was great. We will come back in the whale season to go on this cruise again. Thanks, Pete and Cassie for a great morning out. A highlight of our trip to Hervey Bay.

      Excellent half day tour with Pete and Cassie. Very knowledgable about where we might spy the dolphins and then lots of effort to spend the maximum amount of time with the dolphins - swimming and playing near the catamaran. Lovely hospitality with Cassie being more than accommodating for the coeliac in the group. Really fun four hours spent with our three (grown up) kids (21, 19 and 15 years) - nice to have an activity that we all really loved. Thanks again Pete and Cassie. Highlight of our week away.

Both Pete and Cassie are passionate about marine mammals and love to show guests our resident dolphins and educate people about these gorgeous animals. Happy to hear you enjoyed your morning on the water with Blue Dolphin and we hope to see you again one day. Many thanks for the lovely review.

      Absolute perfect day out on the water! Peter and crew were so knowledgeable and friendly and despite warning us that we may not see any dolphins due to the recent floods we were able to spot several humpback dolphins. Highly recommend the 4 hour eco dolphin tour for anyone wanting an awesome short trip out on the water, dip in the ocean and lovely morning tea. Thanks guys, definitely recommending this to friends and family members in the future!

      The weather was not great, overcast and drizzly, and it was a bit of a bumpy ride as it was quite choppy. The trip itself was good, the crew were great, very knowledgeable. A great morning tea was served. The crew were fantastic at spotting the dolphins as they did tend to blend into the landscape. Would highly recommend.

      Hi Karen thank you for joining us on Blue Dolphin. Yes not all days are like the brochure but the dolphins don't mind at all.

      This relaxing and friendly cruise upon the comfortable Catamaran was just thing that we as a group of 4 were looking forward to. We had realised that we were too early for the whale season but as a replacement this half day out ticket all the boxes. Peter and the crew were just the perfect guides with their knowledge and expertise showing through. If like us you are out of whale season we would recommend this cruise but be assured we will be returning during the whale season and booking a cruise with Peter and the crew next time we are at Hervey Bay.

      Our 1/2 day tour ticked all of the boxes. Fortunately the weather and boating conditions were very good..... clear skies and calm water. After a brief boat-safety talk, Peter and Cassie worked hard to spot any dolphin activity and then carefully motored towards the dolphins to get a closer view. At one stage there were 9 dolphins in different spots around the boat.

      We were served a delicious and generous morning tea of savoury breads, cakes, muffins, biscuits and a variety of fresh fruit also tea, coffee or soft drinks.

      On the way back to the marina we stopped for a swim. Peter anchored near a white sandbar so we were able to swim in clear, blue water. The colour of the water is beautiful.

      This was our second trip with Blue Dolphin Tours and I highly recommend them for offering a range of tours and their attention to detail. Peter and crew work hard to make sure each passengers' expectations are met.

      We took the Dolphin sailing adventure. It was a lovely day. The team was very knowledgeable, not just about the dolphins but also about the local area and history. They were always happy to answer questions. The numbers on the boat were good for being social, yet we didn't have any issues getting a view of the dolphins at any point. We enjoyed the entire experience - from the peaceful sailing to spotting the dolphins to riding along in the water. This was well worth it and we appreciated the personal approach (vs. some of the larger outfits running from the area).

      One of our favourite day trips we’ve done on the east coast! Peter and the crew were amazing from start to finish - pick and drop off from our accommodation, snacks and drinks on board, swimming at amazing spots, up close dolphin sitings and amazing local knowledge. The value for money makes this a must do trip we couldn’t fault a minute of it. (Morning day trip)
