Wild Byron – Whale Watching safari

Every winter, over 30,000 Humpback Whales migrate from Antarctica up the East Australian coast to mate and birth their calves in warm tropical waters. Witness their playful curiosity and acrobatics as they breach, slap and splash just off the beaches of beautiful Byron Bay.

Wild Byron Whale Watching operate daily tours between June and October for the adventurous at heart on our purpose built boat “Apollo 2” : 360 degree views, padded seating and powerful engines for safety, speed and comfort.

Wild Byron provides  an intimate experience with the whales on a small personalised safari style tour, with a maximum of 12 passengers.

Marine experts and researchers will guide you through the cruise with in-depth knowledge of the whales and their behaviours, while listening to the Humpback Whale song via our underwater hydrophone.

Professional onboard photographers will capture memorable moments of your trip and share the photos free of charge so you can sit back and enjoy the experience.

As we explore the stunning coastal scenery of the Cape Byron Marine Park, it is highly likely that we will encounter several whales and other marine creatures such as dolphins, turtles and migratory seabirds.
