Small and Personalised Whale Watching Eco Tours

Whale Watching Byron Bay conduct daily whale watching tours between June and October.  Our trips are small and personalised with a maximum of 12 customers per tour.

The migration route of the Australian east coast Humpback whale brings them in such close proximity to Byron Bay’s Cape Byron it is likely you will encounter several whales during your tour.  This also allows us the quickest access to the waters used by migrating humpback whales.  Therefore there are no long boat rides to and from whale watching sites and your whale watching adventure begins immediately.

Our whale watching guides will impart  interesting facts about the migrating whales as well as Cape Byron Marine Park’s many other sea creatures including dolphins, sea turtles and many different species of sea bird.  Each of Whale Watching Byron Bay’s vessels is equipped with a hydrophone so you can listen to the Humpback whales amazing whale song.

All of our RIB vessels are permitted by New South Wales Marine Parks Authority to engage in whale watching activities within the Cape Byron Marine Park (Permit No.CBMP2008/CA005) and are fully licensed by the New South Wales Maritime Authority (Survey No.21923).
