Whale Watching Tours Cairns season July – September!
There are few more emotional or moving experiences in nature than viewing Humpback Whales up close in their natural environment.
Taking the opportunity to see these magnificent creatures will leave you with memories lasting a life time.
The Humpback Whale season in Cairns is at it’s peak from July to September. This forms part of an annual migration of approximately 4000 whales escaping bracing cold conditions in Antarctica to rear their young in the warmer waters of Australia’s east coast. Researchers believe approximately 2000 of these Whales make the 10,000km round trip to the Cairns region annually.
Reef Magic Cruises pioneered dedicated Whale Watching Tours in the far north region, commencing operation in July 2009 as the only company offering this unique experience. In our first season we boasted a 99% success rate with whale encounters on all but one departure making this activity a reliable nature tour option for Cairns.
Tours are conducted on our stable fast catamaran with passenger numbers held well below the vessels capacity to ensure maximum viewing opportunities for all guests.
A perfect half day option, tours depart daily at 09:30am and last 3-3.5 hours.
A 13:30 departure may also operate on days where demand exceeds the capacity of the morning tour, for sole charters or for groups of 20 or more passengers.
Coach transfers are available from all Cairns city and northern beaches accommodation for $16pp. Pick-up time will be notified at time of booking.
