THE WHALES WILL BE BACK IN MAY 2020, SEE YOU THEN! THE BEST TIME TO SEE WHALES IS JUNE AND JULY, WHEN THEY ARE HEADING UP TO THE GREAT BARRIER REEF TO HAVE THEIR CALVES. THEY PASS VERY CLOSE TO LAND HERE IN PORT STEPHENS DURING THOSE MONTHS, ITS OUR FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR!
The whale watching season is from the end of May to mid November when over 20,000 Humpback whales swim past Port Stephens on their annual migration North along the Australian east coast to the warmer waters of the South Pacific Ocean. After breeding they migrate with their calves back to the Southern Ocean and the cold waters of the Antarctic.Enquire Now
