Out of the Blue Adventures, Ballina is a wonderful boat trip along this special coast. It leaves Ballina via the Richmond River and travels along the coast to Byron Bay. We saw many dolphins with the infants, turtles, jumping fish and sea birds travelling through these protected marine park waters. The marine biologist on board, explained about the wild life we witnessed so making the whole experience fabulous.All comforts are provided including all weather jackets. The staff and boat both equally professional and friendly We were served home made snacks as we approached the stunning waters of Byron Bay. It is too beautiful to appreciate in photos, you just have to go and see for yourself.

Although living in the area for sometime I have never actually viewed our fantastic coastline from the ocean side and am so glad I got to do it with Out of The Blue Adventures. The Byron Bound trip was exceptional, crossing the Ballina bar was a breeze for our Skipper Dean his local knowledge of the coast is great. Gabrielle the Marine Biologist on board taught me things about dolphins I never knew. Viewed little local beaches on the way, looked up at the Byron Lighthouse for a change and cruised around Julian Rocks. The homemade snacks provided where fantastic, we even asked for the receipe!
If you have a chance to get on board the Out of The Blue Adventure Tours do so you will not be sorry.

What a great experience! Out of the Blue pick you up and take you out through the Ballina river mouth, all the way to Byron Bay and Jillian rocks. You get to see all the famous Byron surf breaks and the cliffs are an amazing sight. We saw Whales and an abundance of dolphins. The boat is extremely comfortable and shaded from the sun and they provided jackets for anyone that was cold. The marine biologist on board provided interesting details about the marine life and Dean (boat driver) was super nice and I felt very safe as I could see he was very confident with the boat.
I'd highly recommend this trip and i would go again

This adventure is a must do in the ballina byron area for an amazing water and sealife experience. You will take in the breath taking views of the amazing coast from the sea with sealife surrounding you. The out of the blue team were very friendly and welcoming and made sure Saftey was a big priority. They were also very knowledgeable about the areas history. 10 out of 10 for me.
