Experience an unforgettable close encounter with Humpback Whales on this 90-minute express whale watching cruise from Port Stephens. Travel aboard ‘Envision’, a 40ft fast cat for a quick journey straight out to sea to spot the whales on their annual migration past Port Stephens from June to November. Every year approximately 35,000 whales pass by the coastline and passengers will be able to spot these majestic creatures from every angle with 360 degree viewing aboard the vessel. While you are out exploring the Marine Park, keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and Fur Seals that like to laze on the rocks near Cabbage Tree Island. If conditions are suitable, the crew may even drop the hydrophone in the ocean so you can listen to the unique whale songs happening in the ocean.
Beautiful quick trip out to the middle of the ocean got to see a majestic whale and her baby and pod of dolphins on the way back. Absolutely beautiful.
Thoroughly recommend. The staff were very helpful and happy that we had a couple of French tourists on board who had binoculars on hand. He could spot the whale breaching from afar and another tourist to spot the Dolphins on the way back.
