The Experience

In a small group with a maximum of eight people we will spend 3-4 hours offshore with the Humpback whales. There are over 35,000 Humpbacks on Australia's East coast so sightings are guaranteed although the whales decide if they want to swim with us. Our skipper is highly experienced swimming with whales around the World and is very familiar with identifying happy and curious whale behaviour. Our group size is kept to a minimum of just eight swimmers to increase the chances of a unique and special encounter. Despite their size humpbacks can be shy and large groups of people in the water are definitely not ideal for a good whale interaction.

To keep you warm we have 5mm freedive suits with hoods and quality masks and fins. Our boat is a fast and comfortable Rigid Inflatable as used by military and police due to their safety and stability. We have individual seats and all safety equipment on board.

Humpbacks are a very gentle and curious whale and will often approach our boat to say hello.

We provide a high-quality mask, set of fins and a wetsuit.

The tour begins along the Tweed River, we often encounter sea birds, local dolphins and other marine life on the way to the island. Humpback whales are a daily sight from June to November.
