The warm subtropical waters of the Tweed is home to an array of marine life, all year round. But our waters are joined by some gentle giants through the months of May – November, each year!
Pods of Humpback whales make the long journey from Antartica to the warmer waters of Australia to mate, and give birth, before making their long journey back to the south.
There are many incredible spots around the Tweed, where you can spot these passer buyers or get up-close and personal on a local whale watching tour! You might even spot the famous white whale, Migaloo!
If you are looking for an up-close encounter with these whales, how about going on a tour? If you are celebrating a special occasion whilst holidaying on the Tweed and are looking for a special, memorable activity, you can look no further than Watersports Guru‘s private whale watching tour! Only seating up to 10 passengers, this experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Watersports are flexible with your itinerary, making your experience suit your needs. With a combined total of 30 year’s experience and being a family run business, you are in the best hands possible.
The Tweed Coast is home to many accredited whale-watching group tours, but we recommend hitching a ride with locally owned and operated, Coolangatta Whale Watch. Leave the crowds behind and step aboard their 60ft vessel, which is one of the fastest purpose-built whale watching catamaran vessels on the Southern Gold Coast. Each cruise is restricted to 50 passengers to ensure a comfortable viewing experience.
