Jervis Bay Whale Watching Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Witness the majestic beauty of our migrating humpback whales on this 2-hour whale watching cruise from the town of Huskisson on Jervis Bay. You’ll cruise through the sparkling waters and past the white sandy beaches of the Jervis Bay Marin Park in search of these gentle giants of the sea. From May to November whales in increasing numbers can be found along the NSW coast on their annual migration, and during the months of October and November mothers and calves even enter Jervis Bay for a number of days to rest and bond with their young before continuing on the massive journey back to Antarctica.
  • Cruise to spot migrating humpback whales
  • Onboard live commentary from guides on the whales' behavior
  • Spot other animals, such as dolphins and penguins
  • Travel aboard a purpose-built catamaran with five viewing levels
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 your tour.
