What to Expect

Wild about whales? Join this 6 hr cruise in the search for the majestic humpback whales during their southerly migration along the spectacular Wilsons Promontory coastline. From September to November they return south to the cool waters of Antarctica after mating and calving in the warm, tropical waters of Queensland. 


On your journey look out on stunning coastal scenery including remote sandy beaches, picturesque coves, isolated islands and towering rock formations. See spectacular views along the Prom, including Rabbit Island, Sealers Cove, Refuge Cove and the Wilsons Promontory Lightstation.


Delight in the opportunity to spot diverse marine wildlife such as shy albatrosses, Australian fur seals, common dolphins and of course the majestic humpback and southern right whales. Do remember, that whale and dolphin sightings are not guaranteed, as they are in a natural environment, however, there is about a 90% success rate.


Plus, you'll get to indulge in a delicious homemade lunch and morning tea with beer, wine and mixed drinks available for purchase at our licensed bar plus complimentary tea and coffee throughout the cruise.
