A great way to see Port Stephens is by taking the ferry service between Tea Gardens and Nelsons Bay. A very relaxing cruise where you can see dolphins at play and take in fantastic scenery along the way.

Absolutely loved the ferry trip across to Tea Gardens! Good value for money with great scenery along the way.. Nice walk around Tea Gardens with great fish and chips to eat along the shore and a great little icecream/lolly shop there too.
Will definitely do the ferry ride again

Really enjoyed our trip over to Tea Gardens to see friends for lunch (at the Boathouse). The ferry staff were delightful. Book ahead if you can, as you get priority boarding! Saw plenty of dolphins and they slowed down so you could get a good look and take photos.

We went on this ferry ride to Tea Gardens. It was a beautiful day and the trip there and back was a wonderful experience, the waters were calm and we spotted a number of dolphins - the skipper kindly slowed for photos and a closer look - Our stay in Tea Gardens was approx. two hours and was very pleasant. The return trip was equally enjoyable and the whole trip made for a very nice day out. The ferry we had was vintage and perfect for the trip.
