Overview
Watch Jervis Bay's annual humpback whale migration from the best possible spot—the deck of a whale-watching boat—during this 2-hour cruise. Explore the waters of Jervis Bay Marine Park and learn all about the whales' biology, behavior, and migrating and breeding patterns from an onboard guide. Aboard a comfortable, purpose-built catamaran, you'll also have opportunities to spot more marine life, such as seals, penguins, and bottlenose dolphins.
What to Expect
Arrive at Huskisson's Jervis Bay Cruise Terminal in advance of your tour's departure time. Step aboard the purpose-built, 18-meter (60-foot) catamaran, complete with five viewing levels to ensure all guests get the best possible experience.

Find a comfortable spot as the boat heads out of the harbor and then begin your search for the migrating humpback whales—plentiful in the months of May through November. Look for signs of the whales, such as tail slaps and blows, and listen to in-depth commentary from your guide. You'll also likely see other animals, such as dolphins, albatross, seals, and penguins, that call this pristine bay home.

Return to land after about two hours.

Very organised and professional cruise - glad we booked beforehand as it ended up being booked out. Saw a few whales and lots of dolphins - our timing wasn't great between whales heading north and then returning. Enjoyed the delight from the many children on...More

Best sightseeing cruise ever!

So professionally conducted, they bring you out to the open sea with a nice detour of spotting some dolphins in the Bay Area. They then bring you out to the ocean where we saw an amazing amount of whales just travelling together! Safe, affordable and...More
