Whale Sightings

Back to Whale Sightings

29 JUNE 2024

We could not have asked for a better day, Port Stephens is basking in warm winter sunshine and beautiful calm seas with just a gentle roll. Hinchinbrook Explorer has cruised off shore past the Yaccaba Headland on the Tea Gardens side of the Bay and then on towards Boondelbah Island. We have multiple pods of Humpback Whales to the left, to the right, in front and also behind the vessel. On approached the crew have spotted distant breaching, but more excitedly there has been a pair of Humpback Whales breaching in unison within 200 meters off the boat.

The afternoon Whale Watch Cruise has been a replica of the morning with spectacular conditions off shore as we begin our search for the mighty Humpback Whale. Again we are surrounded by pods of Humpback Whales, and not to out-do the whales sighted during the morning our passengers have been witness to the second sychronsied double breach of the day
