The Humpback Whale migration is one of the greatest wildlife experiences in Australia. On our east coast it begins in May with the young energetic males leading the way and runs through until early November when the mothers return south with their new calves. It is an amazing experience to see the migrating whales up close as they pass on their annual journey between the Antarctic and the warm waters of the Coral Sea.
Midweek discounts are available, see our product Whale Watching Terrigal Midweek which provides a discounted rate from Monday to Thursday outside of holiday periods.
The whales pass close to the Terrigal Haven and it is usually
a short trip to link up with their migration path. We often see whales
breaching, tail slapping and fin slapping. A highlight is seeing a mother
teaching a new calf these important life skills.
We follow in our purpose built Ecotour RIB at a respectful distance and have a Marine Biologist on board to answer any questions and to
help identify the species. On most trips we will be gathering data for whale
Occasionally we will divert our tours to depart from Hardys Bay into Broken Bay if weather and sea conditions will be more suitable.
