What you need to know

The Australian coastline comes alive every year with the migration of Humpback Whales travelling past our shoreline. Join this 90 minute whale watching cruise from Shell Cove to catch a rare glimpse of these majestic creatures as they enter warm Australian waters.

During the Northern migration pattern, you’ll travel further out in the ocean to witness the busy Humpback Whales heading towards sub-tropical waters to mate and give birth. On the Southern migration, you’ll be treated to a closer glimpse of the parents and their newborn calves that hover closer to shore as they teach and nurse their young ones on the journey back to Antarctica.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars. Whale watching cruises are available from May to November. You won’t want to miss out on this extraordinary experience.
