WHAT TO EXPECT
Get ready for a day full of sun, sand, sea and some seriously cool guides! Your Coast Warrior trip will be an experience you'll never forget.
Your adventure starts off in stunning Nelson Bay, and from there it's action time as you hit the road with some awesome tunes. Travel across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and catch some incredible views as you go. Get comfy and grab a couple more hours of sleep or have a chat with fellow travellers as you make the journey to your first stop at Anna Bay.
Once you arrive, jump into Trudy, the 4WD bus, and delve into the dunes for some sand action! Have a go at stand up sand boarding and master some moves on Anna Bay's towering sandy waves. If sandboarding isn't your thing, head to a local cafe or explore a nearby beach. You also have the option of swapping sandboarding for a camel ride for additional $15 on the day!
Afterwards, pile back into Trudy and hit the road to a bottle shop to grab some drinks for your BBQ lunch - there's even an esky aboard to keep your beers cold.
Next, it's time to hit the water and head out into Nelson Bay for a spot of dolphin watching. Take in breathtaking views around you and get even closer to the marine life as you swim in the boom net!
Please be aware that dolphin watching is an optional extra for $20 payable on the day. If you'd rather, you can stay ashore and swim, sunbath and check out Nelson Bay shops. There's also the option to grab a snorkel and go for a swim at nearby Fly Point.
After some water action, it's time for a rest and relax over a delicious BBQ lunch. Head to a nearby park for an authentic Australian BBQ and try some kangaroo if you're feeling adventurous. If you're not a meat eater don't worry - Coast Warrior caters for all dietary needs from vegetarians to vegan alike!
After lunch, it's time to make the trip to Shoal Bay, a beautiful stretch of clear water and sparkling sand. You'll be able to catch stunning views of the Nelson Bay Lighthouse and magnificent Mount Tomaree in the distance. Immerse yourself in this spectacular nature with a bushwalk to Mount Tamorree lookout area (approx 30 mins) or sit back on the beach, pump some music and enjoy the serenity.
Your last stop for the day is Shoal Beach Bay and secluded Zenith Beach where you can kick back and splash in the sea or relax on the sand.
Finally, head back to Sydney where you'll enjoy some free drinks and nibbles to conclude your beach adventure!
