Townsville Whale Watching – 3 hour cruise – Whale season July-August
Morning and afternoon cruises available
Each year the waters surrounding Townsville, Magnetic Island and 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, often showing off with breaches, tail slapping and even a close up wink when they are feeling extra curious.
Mid-July to August is a prime time for whale watching and this cruise is the perfect opportunity to enjoy an encounter with these gentle giants.
