Our Whale Watching season starts from the end of May right through to the end of October. No month is particularly better than another but we do have the chance to witness different activity.
From May to August marks the humpback north migration, during this time we witness very active and energetic whales, including breaching, competition groups, males eager to get the attention of the females, and chin slapping.
In August we see a lot of inquisitive, interactive whales, mugging and close encounters, along with a first look at the seasons newest little whales.
Then from the end of August through to October is the south migration. This is when we get the chance to see more mothers coming back inshore with their newly born calves and more male competition groups.
Of course, the above activity can also be witnessed throughout the season. Therefore, this is a general guideline to whale season.
