Port Stephens cruise tour operators, Imagine Cruises and Lets Go Adventures, recently hosted a TV crew fronted by musician, actor and television presenter, David Reyne, who will help present a new nature-based TV program on the Nine Network in May.
David, a former ‘Getaway’ TV travel reporter, and the crew dived with over 40 grey nurse sharks off a small rocky island 18km north of the port’s entrance and then spent time on two of the islands off the coast of Port Stephens – Broughton Island (where the crew camped overnight) and Fingal Island. Imagine Cruises’ nature guide, Jeannie Lawson, fronted the cameras with David to explain the history, fauna and flora of the islands. Imagine Cruises has recently launched new cruise tours to both national park-protected islands. The TV crew also joined Dolphin Swim Australia for a unique dolphin swim experience aboard the Imagine catamaran.
The segments will air as part of a new 10 x 30 min ‘Australian Geographic Adventures’ TV series to air on the Nine Network in May in conjunction with Australian Geographic magazine.
