Whale season

Whale Season

WHALE SEASON IS UPON US, WITH THOUSANDS OF WHALES GRACING OUR WATERS, PROVIDING UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THOSE WHO VISIT AND LIVE ON THE COFFS COAST TO EXPERIENCE THESE INQUISITIVE GIANTS FROM AFAR, AND UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL.

From Humpbacks to their rarer relatives Southern Right, Sperm and Minke whales, these amazing creatures can be spotted from several local headlands slapping their fins, spy-hopping and breaching, making the annual whale migration a wonderful spectacle. If you’re chasing a closer view, NSW’s second longest whale-watching vessel, the Pacific Explorer, provides two hours of uninterrupted viewing experience for the whole family. Not close enough for your liking? Looking for something a little more personal? The Coffs Coast is one of the only places in Australia to enjoy an unforgettable eye-to-eye experience with these gentle giants! Jetty Dive offers a once-in-a-lifetime swim with the whales experience for those 12 years of age and up, so be sure to book your experience today!
