A whale watching trip is one of the best adventures to be had in Jervis Bay. During the winter months, humpback whales visit our region during their yearly migrations.
Humpback whales travel from the cold arctic waters of the Southern Hemisphere north towards warmer oceans for breeding and birthing their young. The whales undertake one of the longest migrations of any animals in the wild. Moving into the more temperate waters, the humpback whales pass through the waters off the South Coast and lucky whale watchers catch sight of these awesome creatures.
Whale watching occurs during the months of May through November, the cooler months in southeast Australia’s climate. During this period, whales may be spotted at any time, but their migration patterns fluctuate naturally. Typically, October and November is prime time for a whale cruise, as mother humpbacks nurse their young whales in the waters of Honeymoon Bay.
You’ll spend two fun-filled hours aboard our boat on your whale watching journey. Departing twice daily at 10:30am and 1pm, you should be ready to go at the cruise terminal approximately 15 minutes before your tour is set to leave.
We have a great spotting record, so the chance of seeing whales on your eco cruise is extremely high. You’ll observe whales swimming and breaching, blowing water from their spouts, and maybe even leaping and turning in the air. It’s a thrilling experience to watch the whales at play. In late winter/early spring, you are also likely to spot baby whales keeping close to their mothers. In addition to the incredible whales and other wildlife, you’ll enjoy the spectacular natural beauty of Jervis Bay. The whale watching tour carries you throughout the entirety of the bay, and you’ll pass pristine white beaches, visit the gorgeous lagoon of Honeymoon Bay, and travel alongside Point Perpendicular’s towering cliffs.
