While the human world has been in a bit of turmoil this year, it’s business as usual for the whale population. That means whale migration activity is happening again in Moreton Bay and you won’t want to miss it.

Office Manager at Brisbane Whale Watching, Dessray Colledge said it’s important for everyone to know that whale watching cruises will be recommencing for the season in July.

“Unfortunately, you can’t see the whale migration from land here in Redcliffe, so the best option is to join us onboard our daily cruises,” Dessray said.

Whale watching season runs from June through to November, with whale sightings a daily occurrence. If you’re ready to set sail, you can hop aboard a cruise with Brisbane Whale Watching — a multiple award-winning Eco Accredited nature tourism cruise company. It’s owned and operated by the South Pacific’s only female captain of a whale-watching venture, Captain Kerry Lopez. The best part is you’re guaranteed to see a whale!

“Captain Kerry and her friendly crew are ready to take you on an unforgettable journey through the crystal-clear waters of Brisbane’s Moreton Bay to experience the mesmerizing migration of the mighty humpback whales,” Dessray said.

“You will always remember your first time sighting the Humpback Whale. It’s such a massive animal in its natural habitat — breaching, blowing and playing just meters from the boat. It will leave you with goosebumps!”

Moreton Bay is recognised as one of the world’s best whale-watching destinations. So even though the year might have gotten off to a rocky start, now is the perfect time to get out and about and experience something new.

“Humpback whales are just magical creatures. They are so inquisitive and to be honest when we are out there with them, it really is a case of ‘who is watching who’?” Dessray said.

Brisbane Whale Watching tours operate daily during whale watching season. Passengers board from the Redcliffe Jetty at 9am, returning again in the mid-afternoon.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone on board with us,” Dessray said.
