New Ecotourism Experience in Lake Macquarie - CoastXP Launches Second Boat


Local ecotourism business CoastXP is thrilled to introduce their new vessel, Hydro, as an exciting expansion to their fleet. Hydro is based in Lake Macquarie full-time and accommodates 12 guests, complimenting their flagship boat, Atmos.

In launching Hydro, CoastXP has created entirely new ecotourism opportunities for Lake Macquarie while Atmos remains primarily operating out of Newcastle. New experiences for Lake Macquarie include ocean adventures, whale watching and guided nature walks. They have also reinforced their dedication to supporting regional businesses by collaborating with local suppliers in their new exclusive lunch packages.

CoastXP’s primary departure location for offshore experiences will be Chalmers Street Jetty (Near Swansea RSL), and for inshore experiences will be the Belmont Baths Jetty (along the Belmont foreshore).

As CoastXP expands, they remain extremely dedicated to growing Lake Macquarie as a sustainable tourism destination and is proud to be a Quality and Sustainable Tourism Accredited Business and licensed National Parks Eco Pass Operator. Dominic May, (the founder of CoastXP) started the business in 2018 on his own, and with this expansion the team has now grown to a team of five.

The CoastXP team look forward to welcoming you aboard Hydro for a fun new experience in Lake Macquarie in 2024! For booking information, available days, and times, please visit the CoastXP website at
