Now offering Sunset Sessions on the Hunter River & Newcastle Harbour

For all the ocean lovers out there, big news!

Called CoastXP this isn't your typical coastal sightseeing tour, and as one of the first to jump on board, we can assure you it's a one-of-a-kind experience.   

Outside of the whale watching season you can enjoy a relaxing Sunset Session taking in the sights of the Hunter River and Newcastle Harbour. Sit back and relax with a cold beverage in hand and learn about the history of the working port, spot some resident dolphins and get up close to some shipwrecks.

Let's be clear on something, this boat moves! So not only will your tour have your heart pumping, there will be plenty of opportunities to check out Newcastle from a different angle from the brand new custom-built vessel called ‘Atmos’. 

CoastXP tours explore the local geology, Aboriginal heritage, unique destination landmarks including wrecks, cliffs, islands, sea caves, ships and any other local marine life that happens to cruise on past.

Recognised as a world-leading port, The Port of Newcastle has more than four thousand vessel movements a year something that the tours will be able to witness with up close 360-degree unobstructed views.

Tours are designed to offer an unrivaled personable experience on the water, by providing each guest with high-quality digital images of your tour, excellent service as well as weatherproof jackets to keep you warm through the chilly winter months.

CoastXP experiences have been specifically designed to cater for families, groups, couples and individuals; the ‘Encounter Tour’ (Jun - Nov) is a nature-based experience focusing closely on the annual Humpback Whale migration up the east coast of Australia.

There's also an Adventure Tour, Sunset Sessions, Bespoke Tours and even a New Year's Eve Fireworks Experience.
