Experience the beauty of whale watching in Jervis Bay:

Jervis Bay is home to some of the most stunning landscapes in Australia, offering visitors a range of natural wonders that are hard to find anywhere else in the world. Located in the Shoalhaven region of New South Wales, Jervis Bay Marine park is known for its pristine beaches, crystal clear waters, and  diverse range of flora and fauna. However, what makes Jervis Bay truly unique is the presence of thousands of migrating humpback whales that pass through its waters every year. 

The calm and sheltered waters of Jervis Bay offer ideal conditions for whale watching, making it one of the best places in Australia to witness these majestic creatures up close. Our tours take you right into the heart of the action, where you can see these amazing animals in their natural habitat. It’s an experience that you will never forget.

What is Whale Watching?

Whale watching is an experience that allows you to observe these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. Unlike visiting a zoo, whale watching takes place in the open ocean, where you can witness the whales in their natural environment. This allows you to see them up close and personal, without disrupting their natural behavior. Whale watching tours typically involve cruising in boats to areas where whales are known to gather. Once there, passengers can observe and learn about the whales’ behaviors, feeding patterns, and migration habits. 

At Jervis Bay Whale Watching Tours, we offer a range of tours that cater to all types of visitors, from families with young children to seasoned nature enthusiasts. Whale watching is an unforgettable experience that is suitable for people of all ages.

Super friendly crew. Very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. Went on a whale watching cruise and saw heaps of dolphins, but no whales were about unfortunately (not much can be done about that) - they said we can come back again within 12 months for another go for free. Highly recommended.

Love "Husky" and love "Dolphin Watch"! Been here many times over the years and love coming back every time and going for a cruise. Sadly, no dolphins, this time last year (first time ever). But we came back (thanks for the free ticket) and WoW! Check the pics....dolphins everywhere this time! Thanks for doing what you do. Look forward to a whale watch one day!
