Melbourne Whale watching cruises

Witnessing any marine mammal in the wild is thrilling, to say the least. Cross whale watching off your bucket list with these Melbourne whale watching cruises! These majestic leviathans of the deep put up a show worthy of applause, as they breach and then disappear into the azure waters. With over 60% of the worldwide population of whales living in Australian areas, the capital city of Australia’s Southeastern state is no exception to the action! 

Melbourne has become an increasingly popular whale watching cruise destination and the season for doing so is roughly between September to November. Whale watching cruises to Wilsons Prom and Phillip Island sunset cruises are some of the most popular activities in Melbourne! The warmer waters of the spectacular Southern coastline is the prime spot wherein the whales come to raise their calves en route their journey back home. 

Witness these gentle giants thwacking their tails playfully and occasionally surfacing in an alluring breach. Watching these wild animals in their home reminds us of the vastness and diversity we live in and it is truly a grounding and humbling experience. 

The custom-built catamarans allow for an unparalleled viewing experience of the whales, seals, albatrosses and dolphins. You could opt to cruise in daylight on a whale watching cruise with Wilsons Prom or a romantic twilight cruise to Phillip Island. In addition to whale watching on this cruise, enjoy scenic vistas and sightings of a plethora of avian and marine animals in their natural habitat en route. 

Informative commentary by an expert is provided on both boats and it keeps you abreast with all the sights (and possibly sounds) that surround! This twilight cruise also allows you to catch a glimpse of an Australian Navy submarine called HMAS Otama. 

These are some of Melbourne’s best-rated whale watching cruises and they’re sure to make for a memorable experience. So book now to experience the magic and the adrenaline rush!
