Our trip on Day 3 started with a long drive to the north of Sydney for the Port Stephens tour. Port Stephens is regarded as the dolphin capital of Australia. It takes approximately 2½ hours drive to get to the port. Prior to our cruise, we stopped for a short 4WD sand boarding tour of the dunes. We hopped on the 4WD vehicle that took us on a bumpy ride through the dunes heading to the sand boarding start point which is kind of exciting.
As we started the cruise and moved along further away from the shore the sea became very choppy which made it dangerous for us to stay outside of the cabin. The cruise promises that there is 99% chance of viewing the bottle nose dolphins, unfortunately for us, we did not get to see any. How sad. Well I suppose it happens. The cruise went back to port after an hour for our long journey back to Sydney.
We arrived late evening into Sydney and decided to grab a quick bite at McDonald's and turned in for the night as we were all tired and we have an early Blue Mountains tour tomorrow.
