Whale watching Byron Bay

Quick Details

Adults Ages 18+ years
Children Ages 5-17 years

Join us and experience one of the world’s most incredible animal migrations. Whale watching Byron Bay will take you right up to the humpback whales with the amazing Byron Bay landscape as a backdrop. Runing since 2002, it made us Byron Bay’s most experienced whale watching tour operator.

We are the only whale watching tour operator departing directly from The Pass, Byron Bay. This allows us the quickest access to the humpback whale migration on the Australian east coast. Therefore, there are no long boat rides to and from whale watching sites and your adventure begins immediately.

The whale watching tours are scheduled daily, with various departure times throughout the whale season, which runs from June to October. Our trips are small and personalised with a maximum of 8 customers per tour.

Over the years, we have developed a tour that will provide you with a safe, informative, and rewarding experience. Our whale watching guides will impart interesting evidences 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 birds. Each of our vessels is equipped with a hydrophone so you can listen to the humpback whales soothing whale song.
