Whale Watching Tour Townsville half day cruise

Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to see the gentle giants of the sea on a 3 hour cruise during their annual migration

Each year the waters surrounding Townsville, Magnetic Island & The Palm Island Group come alive with the annual migration of the majestic Humpback Whale.

These amazing mammals love playing in the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef and migrate every year to feed, mate and give birth before returning south with their calves. Mid-July to September is a prime time for whale watching and this cruise is the perfect opportunity to enjoy an encounter with these gentle giants. Humpback sightings have continued to increase every year along the Queensland Coastline, they just love to show off with breaches, tail slapping and even a close up wink when they are feeling extra curious. Cruise aboard a great vessel with commentary, a delicious morning tea and two decks with spacious indoor and outdoor viewing areas.


Boat departure at 01.30 p.m./ Return at 04.30 p.m. from Sealink ferry terminal, Sir Leslie Thiess Dr, Townsville.
