- One of the best places in the world to see whales
- Amazing underwater viewing devices
- Hear whale song beneath the waves
It has to be said that of all wildlife experiences, there’s something a bit special about whale-watching. Perhaps it’s because of the grace of these creatures despite their immense size; perhaps it’s the memory that they were once hunted almost to extinction, and perhaps it’s because few sensations can match seeing a huge whale breaching the waves right in front of you, spraying water from its blowhole, or maybe diving down below the boat. This Byron Bay gift experience takes you out into the deep on the hunt for humpback whales, with an excellent success rate in finding them.
Like many high-quality tours, the numbers are limited - every boat carries only 12 passengers, allowing you excellent views of the whales. There are many other highlights of Australian nature in the area too, from dolphins to turtles and ocean birds, but the main attraction tends to be further out to sea. During the cruise, the friendly crew will inform you about the lives, behaviours and eating habits of humpback whales, before that incredible first encounter. Another excellent reason to book this Australia gift experience is that the boat is kitted out with hydrophone and underwater viewing devices, so even when the whales are underwater you can still see them, and even hear the unforgettable sound of whale song as they communicate.
