    • Get out on the water for an exhilarating whale watching sailing adventure
    • See humpback whales up close on their migration past Port Stephens
    • Look out for other marine life like dolphin pods and more


    Feel the thrill of seeing majestic whales up close in their natural environment on this epic whale watching cruise in Port Stephens. You'll explore the waterways for 3-3.5 hours, observing the whales as they make their annual migration north along the Australian east coast.

    Over 12,000 humpback whales swim past Port Stephens towards to warmer waters of the South Pacific Ocean between May and November each year, and after breeding they migrate with their calves back down south. Seeing these gigantic creatures close up is an exhilarating experience you can't beat.

    Jump on board and sail the Port Stephens coastal waters on an amazing 52 foot catamaran that is designed for ocean voyages and has a stable platform. You'll be well looked after by the expert staff and crew who will also provide insightful commentary about the whales as you go.

    While you're out on the water you also have a great opportunity to spot dolphin pods and maybe even fairy penguins, seals, albatross and more. This whale watching tour will have you buzzing the whole time and long after returning to shore.
