The Amaroo

Our purpose-built vessel, The Amaroo, is a twenty-four metre, $2.1 million modern catamaran which provides a fast, comfortable and stable ride. Built in 2014, The Amaroo is extremely stable and spacious, allowing you to enjoy your experience watching the whales and dolphins in comfort.

Specifically designed and built with dolphin and whale viewing in mind, the Amaroo’s three different viewing decks and an abundance of space mean you are assured to have an unobstructed, 360° view of all marine life. 

There is comfortable seating inside and out, as well as a completely enclosed all-weather cabin with extra-large windows, allowing for maximum comfort no matter the conditions. To add to your comfort, we also include light morning tea onboard!

Our Amaroo is an Eco-Friendly vessel, built and operated with minimal impact on the environment. We are incredibly lucky to experience what the natural world has to offer on our tours, so it is only right that we do what we can to protect and respect our environment!

Full commentary by one of our experienced and knowledgeable marine naturalists is given throughout the cruise over our clear PA System.

Enjoy easy vessel access via our large gangway with safety rails and a non-slip floor. The Amaroo is also wheelchair friendly with a disabled toilet onboard.

The Amaroo is easily the largest, fastest and most comfortable cruise vessel operating in the Forster/Tuncurry area, and is renowned as one of the best-designed Whale, Dolphin and general cruise boats on the East Coast of Australia.
