Whale watching is an amazing experience and there is no better place to do it then off the central coast of NSW. From June to October, these huge but friendly Humpback Whales pass through the coastal waters around the Central Coast on their annual migration. Come and see these amazing Ocean Mammals play in the sea.
In winter Whales head north from the feeding grounds in the Southern Ocean, to the warm tropical Pacific Ocean, where they mate and return south with their calves in the spring.
Admire these huge ocean mammals as they leap and roll in mid-air. Observe water spouting from their blowholes, tail lobbing, flipper slapping and calves frolicking at their mothers’ side.
Humpback whales are an endangered mammal species and are protected internationally.
