Fingal Island Eco-Walk & Lighthouse Tour

Fingal Island Eco-Walk & Lighthouse Tour

'Envision' is purpose-designed to take you to the Island quickly and smoothly, where you will be delivered directly onto the beautiful, unspoiled beach.

Fingal Island is full of rich history and incredible views! You can see right across Fingal Bay and the views looking along the coastline are spectacular!


Climb the spiral staircase to the top of unique Point Stephens Lighthouse - your Guide will share stories about it's origin and history as you step out onto the balcony and take in the spectacular view!

Learn about Government Cove (where the ships once delivered supplies, including the sandstone blocks used to build the lighthouse!), Shark Bay (which is now a great snorkeling site) and an Aboriginal fish trap lagoon (which is a fabulous spot for swimming on warmer days!). During the cooler months, Fingal Island is the perfect place to try to spot a Whale!


KIDS!!!! - Become a 'Junior Ranger" for a day! Hear stories of shipwrecks, discover some bush food, and learn about the different plants and wildlife that live on the Island!

Wild Dolphin Swim

Join us for this unique and exciting bucket list experience, which takes you into the world of wild dolphins where you can become a part of the pod and witness true dolphin behaviour!

WILD DOLPHIN SWIM

$349.00 per person (ages 7 to 70)

This is the only permitted wild dolphin swim in New South Wales, the first swim of its kind in the world - and only a 2.5 hour drive north of Sydney! Come and be a part of the pod and witness TRUE dolphin behaviour! Six swim guests at a time are attached to a customised rope which is strung between the two bows of a 54' (16m) catamaran and towed through the water while inquisitive wild dolphins dart back and forth between the bows and often within a couple of metres of the guests - so amazing! All wild dolphin swim tours leave from d'Albora Marina in Nelson Bay, Port Stephens, and take guests offshore to the beautiful waters of the Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park, where the swims take place. Suitable for ages 7 to 70.

Come and #JoinThePod and have the experience of a lifetime!

Location: Dock C, d'Albora Marina, Teramby Road, Nelson Bay, Port Stephens, New South Wales 

Time: 6:15am to 11:00am - 4 hour tour (guests are requested to arrive at 6:15am for check-in and wetsuit fitting)

Inclusions: All gear (wetsuit, mask, snorkel, safety harness), 4 hour cruise, educational commentary, tea/coffee (instant) and complimentary above-water photos which are later uploaded to the Dolphin Swim Australia Facebook page for guests to copy and/or share. Every swim ticket includes a customised video of your experience! This video is edited and sent out after your swim and includes footage of you underwater with the dolphins!
