Whale Watching Ballina to Byron

  • Tours

$2481 Adult + 1 Child

An encounter to be remembered! Discover the astonishing Humpback Whales in their natural habitat as they migrate past the coastline between Ballina and Byron Bay.

Departing from Ballina’s Richmond River and enter the pristine waters of Cape Byron Marine Park, enjoy breathtaking coastal scenery while listening to live Humpback Whale song using our specialised underwater hydrophone. Our friendly Marine Biologist will share in-depth knowledge of the area & jaw-dropping encounters we experience within Byron’s Marine Park.

Each year, between May and November, southern hemisphere Humpback Whales travel north from their Antarctic summer feeding grounds, past Cape Byron headland, and on to their breeding and birthing grounds in the sub-tropics. At more than 2,500-kms, this is considered one of the longest migrations in the animal kingdom. Witnessing this stunning spectacular is easy from Australia’s most easterly point.
