2Hr Coffs Harbour Whale Watch Experience

4.5 based on all time ratings

The Solitary Islands Marine Park in New South Wales is a pitstop for the Humpback Whales to rest and play during their annual migration up north to their breeding grounds. Join this whale watching cruise from Coffs Harbour for a close-up encounter with the whales in their natural habitat.

The ‘Pacific Explorer’ is the second longest operating whale watching vessel in NSW. You’ll cruise out of the harbour and likely see the first splash in just under 15 minutes of departure!

The purpose-built catamaran features spacious open decks and ensures 360° views of the whales in action. These majestic ocean-dwellers are known for their aerobatic manoeuvres that they use to hunt, communicate and interact. During your whale watching experience, you might catch them doing spyhops, breaches, lunge feeds, and tail slaps! So, be camera ready at all times!

This whale watching aboard ‘Pacific Explorer’ operates from June to November and is only interrupted by weather and tide conditions. So, whether you’re a resident or a visitor looking for an adventure amidst some of Earth’s greatest creations, you need to give this whale watching tour a go! Book your seats now!
