Whale Watching Byron Bay

Humpback Whale Watching Byron Bay

Why we Love Wild Byron’s Whale Watching Byron Bay Tour

Every winter over 30,000 humpback whales migrate from Antarctica up the East Australian coast to mate and birth their calves in warm tropical waters. Just off the beaches of beautiful Byron Bay there is plenty of activity and with relative ease from a small vessel we can witness their playful curiosity and acrobatics as they breach, slap and splash.

Whale Watching Byron Bay trips are intimate and personalised with a maximum of 12 customers per tour. It is highly likely that you will encounter several whales on each tour and also other marine creatures such as dolphins, turtles and migratory seabirds as you explore the Cape Byron Marine Park.

Tours operate up to three times daily for the adventurous at heart on Wild Byron’s purpose built boat vessel “Apollo 2”. This vessel is the same design as offshore rescue vessels, a rigid hulled Inflatable with comfortable seating and powerful engines for safety, speed and comfort.

The focus is on giving you an intimate experience with the whales on a small personalised safari style tour.
