Whale Watching

Had an amazing day whale watching today, had about 6-8 whales travelling back home, mum her calf and entourage of 4 humpback whales showing off their skills of breaching.

It was a fantastic spring day, sun shining a light sea breeze in the morning, not much swell as we are heading out to Fish Rock we found some whales just past the gaol around Smoky Cape at South West Rocks. The Humpback whales not doing too much just make their way home after about 10 minute we made our way to Fish Rock for some diving.

During the dive break  we saw the whales again the same one’s but had a little more go in them this time, they were breaching over and over again, they keep going a truly inspiring experience for all.

From April through to November the waters off South West Rocks are a temporary home for migrating whales and their calves.  This provides ideal opportunities to observe majestic humpback whales, Southern right whales, pilot whales and dolphins, and as such whale-watching charters are available upon request.


Whale-watching trips

Come aboard and see the majestic humpback whale as they frolic around, breaching, tail flapping and tail extensions, with their new calves as they make their way home, a truly spectacular and warming experience, a must to do and a fantastic photo opportunity.

We are only aloud to approach them from the side no closer than 100 meters, but more than often they come to us as we are travelling along side.

Apart from whale watching you take in the unspooled scenic coast line of Grassy Head, South West Rocks, Trial Bay, Smoky Cape & Smoky Cape Light House, Green Island and Fish Rock.

Get the family and or a couple of friends and make trip to remember, we take up to 10 people and a minimum of 4 people, the trip goes for about 2 hours with refreshment.

Whale watching cruises are on request so please make contact by phone or email.

Cost is $50 a head
