What you can expect

Merimbula on the NSW Sapphire Coast is one of the world’s best whale watching destinations. Book this two-hour whale watching cruise for a magical encounter with Humpback Whales. Every year, over 40,000 humpback whales migrate past the Australian East Coast and this whale watching cruise from Merimbula will take you into the open ocean to observe them playing in their natural environment.

Join the marine experts on ‘Sensational, a 14 metre vessel for an intimate whale watching experience limited to 40 passengers. Cruises depart from Merimbula between August to November to guarantee the best chance to see the whales lunge feeding while later in the season the baby calves travel past the region.
