The Humpback Whale migration is one of the greatest wildlife
experiences in Australia. On our east coast it begins in May with the young
energetic males leading the way and runs through until early November when the
mothers return south with their new calves. It is an amazing experience to see
the migrating whales up close as they pass on their annual journey between the
Antarctic and the warm waters of the Coral Sea.

For bookings on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and holidays see our product Whale Watch Terrigal.

The whales pass close to the Terrigal Haven and it is usually a short trip to link up with their migration path. We often see whales breaching, tail slapping and fin slapping. A highlight is seeing a mother teaching a new calf these important life skills. We follow in our purpose built Ecotour RIB at a respectful distance and have a Marine Biologist on board to answer any questions and to help identify the species. On most trips we will be gathering data for whale research programs.

Occasionally we will divert our tours to depart from Hardys Bay into Broken Bay if weather and sea conditions will be more suitable.

We will contact you by phone or email to advise of any change. 

Please ensure that you provide correct contact details on your booking form.
