A one hour whale watching tour on our ecotour RIB. 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. A Marine Biologist is on board to answer whale watching questions and help identify the species.
What You'll Get
When the whales are migrating we run a one hour tour to get out and enjoy the majestic sight of the passing whale fleet. 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.
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.
