“Jervis Bay has been a Marine park for 18 years and is now one of the most unique and healthy ecosystems in Australia. That’s why the crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay are home to over 100 Bottlenose Dolphins.
On our Dolphin Tour you will have the privilege of watching these beautiful mammals. We often find pods of Dolphins feeding around reef systems, particularly Plantation Point and Callala, and sometimes they swim and race hundreds of meters to play on our bow.”
From the Shoalhaven Council Tourism branch:
"One of their five vessels, Port Venture, is a 18.5 metre, spacious catamaran with five viewing levels, which has been specifically designed to suit all ages, especially those who are in wheelchairs or have a physical disability. She has disabled amenities on board and level walk or wheel, on and off ramp."General accessibility features:
Mobility accessibility features:
- Accessible toilet(s)

The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"We found the Port Venture to be accessible for BJ using his manual chair but keep in mind the boat does have limitations regarding access. Ask questions if you’re unsure. We found the staff knowledgeable and keen to assist.
A wide and gentle slope on the gangway makes access on and off the Port Venture easy. Step-free access is offered to the bow of the boat but it should be noted the ramp is steep. A bit of muscle power is required.
Not only is the boat accessible for dolphin watching, but the boom netting experience is also made accessible with a hoist available on request. A ramp leads down to the back of the boat to where the boom netting action happens.
An accessible bathroom is on board. It’s larger than the usual boat bathroom but not as big as standard accessible bathroom. Prior to boarding the vessel an accessible bathroom is available to use at the ticket office which is inside the Portside cafe."Other accessibility information:
