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.
