Whale Watching Jervis Bay

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to Huskisson Wharf to board the sleek and modern boat for your 2-hour whale-watching tour.

    Your captain steers the boat out on the waters of Jervis Bay, providing a short safety briefing and introduction to the region's marine life. Keep an eye out for the dolphins that often approach the boat as it cruises out toward Point Perpendicular.

    Take in the rugged landscape of Jervis Bay, which is ringed by the tallest sandstone cliffs on the east coast of Australia. Your captain shares informative commentary about the migrating humpback whales that pass through these waters as you look for the majestic animals. Hear facts about the whales' size and behavior, and the history of contact between whales and humans.

    Choose from three departure times for your tour, making it easy to fit into your sightseeing schedule.

    The tour was overall good, even if we just saw a few splash from Wales, but the staff crept on talking about how stressed they were to get back for the next tour! Extremely frustrating to be honest!More
