An amazing small group experience to see the migrating whales up close as they pass by on their annual journey. The whales pass close to the Terrigal Haven and it is a short trip to link up with their migration path. Learn about these amazing animals in safety with a professional and experienced crew. Our qualified crew are on board to answer questions and help identify the species. On most trips we will be gathering data for whale research programs. Our ecotour RIB is very stable and provides magnificent all round views.

Whale Watching Broken Bay

From Monday 16 August to Sunday 29 August we run our whale watching tours in Broken Bay. Whale watching conditions are more suitable in Broken Bay at this time and the Broken Bay Seal Colony is in full display. We see approximately 30 Long Nosed Fur Seals and they put on a great display in the wild. We can guarantee seals at this time.

We recommend this tour to people who are not agile. Departing Hardys Bay Public Wharf, it is much easier to board the vessel and better suited to people who have trouble climbing in and out of a moving boat.

If you would like to book this tour outside of August please call 0449999868 to make arrangements.
