What you need to know

Get set for an amazing, nature-filled adventure as you witness the incredible sight of whales breaching off the coast of northern NSW. This 2.5 hour Byron Bay whale watching cruise will take you on a journey to see the annual migration of Humpback Whales at play in the waters off Australia's east coast from a great vantage point aboard a personalised tour that accommodates up to 12 customers at maximum.

Join the friendly whale watching guides who will point out all the local highlights on the short boat ride required to reach the sections of the sea busiest with whales due to Byron Bay's location as the easternmost point of Australia. Add various other forms of native marine life to the mix - such as dolphins, turtles, a huge range of ocean birds - and you have yourself one of the most complete days out of whale watching available in the greater Byron Bay region!

Simply choose from the three available daily session times - 8am, 10:30am and 1pm - and book your Byron Bay whale watching experience online today! Hotel transfers aren't included in the price so passengers are required to make their own way to and from the docking point.
