Join us on our Premier Byron Bay Whale Watching Cruise
We depart from Ballina’s Richmond River and enter the stunning waters of Cape Byron Marine Park.
Encounter our astonishing Humpback Whales in their natural habitat as they migrate past the iconic coastline between Byron Bay and Ballina.
Enjoy the breathtaking scenery while listening to live Humpback Whale song using our specialised underwater hydrophone. Our friendly Marine Biologist will share in-depth knowledge of the area & Humpback Whale encounters we experience within Byron’s Marine Park.
Between May and November, Byron Bay is one of Australia’s best destinations to watch these majestic mammals on their annual migration from their cold Antarctic summer feeding grounds to their warmer, sub-tropical breeding and birthing grounds off Australia’s coasts.
Humpback Whales are believed to use landmark to help with navigation on their migration, so they tend to hug the coast making local waters and Cape Byron, Australia’s most easterly point, centre-stage for the whales. Mothers choose calm, sheltered and protected waters like Byron Bay to nurse, teach, rest, and play with their young in preparation for their long swim back to the Antarctic.
Not that you need incentive to visit, but it’s all the more reason to book our Whale Watching Byron Bay to Ballina Cruise, which provides front-row seats aboard an eco-vessel with 360º viewing of the sheer beauty of our favourite finned-friends.
Whether it’s your first or 100th whale watch, you will still watch in awe as these acrobatic creatures amaze us every time; whether they’re breaching, competing for mates, or nurturing their young.
Humpback Whales are among the largest animals on earth! Witnessing them up close and personal you’ll realize their impressive size. Adults average 14-18m in length and weigh 50 tons. Calves are born around 4m in length and weigh 2 tons.
Our modern eco vessel provides 360 degrees viewing for all passengers. It’s unique hull design ensures a smooth ride in all cruising conditions, for up to 20 guests. Our purpose built, state of the art vessel allows our guests to enjoy close encounters on our Whale Watching Byron Bay Cruise. Explore areas along our stunning coastline, only accessible by boat.
