Imagine is dedicated to the protection of Dolphins and Whales…

Imagine Cruises is an advanced Eco-Accredited company. All of our tours are designed to combine knowledge of our environment and tourism in a successful partnership. We showcase the best that the Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park has to offer, while simultaneously doing our best to provide our guests with factual and interesting information about our spectacular marine environment and the local history.

In 1995, Imagine was built by company director Frank Future, and then business partner Yves Papin, with the help of a group of stakeholders. The boat was launched with a vision to help make Port Stephens a model of Ecotourism. For over 27 years, Imagine has continued to support research and conservation initiatives such as the Dolphin Research Education and Management (DREAM) research fund, Eco Network Port Stephens, Ocean & Coastal Care Initiatives, International Whaling Commission, Eco-tourism Australia and the Marine Parks Association.

Committed to best practice business operation, Imagine Cruises believes we must manage ourselves responsibly within our natural environment if future generations are to have the same experiences that we have.


Imagine is a 16 metre (53ft) sailing catamaran, purpose-designed as a model for eco-tourism and capable of both offshore and inshore cruising. She offers a covered foredeck and after deck as well as a comfortable downstairs cabin with toilet facilities and licenced bar.

Envision is a 40ft power cat, designed to move through the water quickly but safely and smoothly. She provides a 360° viewing platform, which is perfect for the keen photographer, and she is also capable of delivering guests directly onto the beach. Operated by AquaMarine Adventures.
