Whale & Dolphin Discovery
“The Whales are regular visitors here on their annual migration to the Whitsundays and to their breeding grounds. From June to August, our waters are a favourite place for them to rest and play and again on their return journey through to October.
Whale One tours operate locally and can show you many happy Humpbacks only a few kilometres off the coast playing and performing to the delight of whale watchers.
Thousands of whales will pass our coast this migration and on the slower journey south they will keep their calves close to shore to protect them from predators, so the viewing opportunities are great! Your whale watching trip will certainly be a day to remember!
