This cruise departs twice daily during the months of mid August, September, October and November. During this time the Humpback whales are on their southern migration from the Queensland coast where they have calved back to Antarctica for the summer months. Other species of whales often sighted include Southern Right, Minke, Brydes, Orcas and Blue whales.
From August through to early December large numbers of humpback whales travel past Merimbula. Merimbula is a wonderful place to view whales from. It is only a very short (8 minute) cruise out into the Merimbula Bay and from this point whales can be found! In the waters of the Sapphire Coast they can be seen lateral lunge feeding, one of the few places in the world where humpbacks can be observed doing this!! A sight not to be missed!! Mothers and their young calves also provide hours of entertainment as they play in the Merimbula Bay.
This cruise is on our 75passenger boat, True Blue. True Blue is a custom-built 16 metre Super Sea Cat with three unobstructed 360 degree viewing decks. She is powered by 2 Cummins engines and a genset. We are committed to minimising our impact upon the environment, our engine emissions are extremely low and our fuel burn is also very efficient.
She has comfortable indoor lounge cabin seating. She also has outdoor seating – great for up close whale viewing! She has complete walk around lower decks allowing you to get so much closer to the whales. With an upper deck enabling a great vantage point for photographs. She has separate Ladies & Mens toilets; Tea & Coffee facilities.
Many other sea creatures are seen on our cruises, including Common & Bottlenose Dolphins, Australian Fur Seals, penguins, flying fish, sunfish, turtles and many species of sea birds.We depart from the Merimbula Marina, Public Jetty, Market Street, Merimbula.
Complimentary Morning or Afternoon Tea provided on return journey.
Daily morning and afternoon cruises.
Please note: In Merimbula the morning is always the calmest time on the ocean so we recommend it is the best time for families and first time sailors. We often see some fantastic action from whales in the afternoons however it is usually windier! Afternoons on the ocean are not for the faint hearted! If booking for an afternoon cruise please dress warmly, take seasickness prevention and bring your sense of adventure!
Boarding commences 15 minutes prior to departure.
We guarantee whales will be sighted! See website for further details.
This cruise takes you out into the open ocean so we do recommend sea sickness prevention.
