Whale Watch Experience/Pacific Explorer

Experience the Humpback whale migration with the most experienced and only specialist whale watching operation in Coffs Harbour. “Pacific Explorer” is the second longest whale watching vessel in NSW.

They want guests to enjoy a life experience. Whales react best in a non-threatening environment away from noise and jam-packed fast boats.

Join the crew from June to November each year for an up close and personal experience with whales. Enjoy uninterrupted viewing, a safe and stable ride, no restrictive fixed seating, and plenty of room to move about.

Cruises depart daily early for the best sea conditions and spend two hours with theses magnificent mammals.

They take the time to gain the whales trust and once comfortable, they often swim along close with the boat. This is an experience that should not be rushed, so take the time to get the best possible interaction with these inquisitive creatures.

When the weather warms and the whales have departed, from December to April, come join them for a dolphin watch in the Solitary Islands Marine Park.
