More info


  • The Express Whale Watch Adventure is fun, informative and a great opportunity to connect with nature. The owner/operators are passionate about whales and love sharing their experience with all onboard. Learn about the biology, lifecycle and behaviour of whales from the dedicated and passionate crew.
  • The boat is a fast, modern and comfortable vessel, specifically designed for whale watching. She is 24 meters long, has lots of outdoor viewing areas but also a large indoor cabin with seating and toilets for your comfort and convenience.
  • The majority of the whales migrating past are Humpback whales but you will also have the chance to see other whales like Southern Rights, Minkes, Bryde’s, Blue and Orcas and marine life like dolphins, sea turtles, Australian Fur Seals, a bounty of sea birds and more from the boat.
  • Whilst all efforts will be made to ensure that your whale watching tour is an enjoyable one it is important to remember that these whales are wild animals. They do not perform on cue! A range of whale behaviours may be viewed including fluke up dives, tail slapping, pectoral fin slapping, spy hopping, breaching, tail throws.
  • This tour is suitable for people of all ages, however, it is important to remember that this tour takes you out into the open ocean. We recommend that if you are affected by motion sickness you take sea sickness prevention tablets. Please talk to your chemist for the best solution for you. Dress warmly and wear flat-soled shoes for comfort and safety.
