See humpback whales

Humpback whales are among the most playful whale species! They love to show off, especially during the winter months of June - October when they migrate along Australia's East Coast. Moreton Bay is a secluded area with warm waters that are ideal for humpback whales to frolic. Watch them launch themselves out of the water and keep your eyes peeled for the babies! You're guaranteed to see whales during your tour, and you may even see other marine life such as dolphins, sharks, or turtles.
