Whale Watching Tour
Included in the gift box: Unique
Partner Name: North Queensland Island Charters
From 'June to September' is whale watching season for humpback whales. The Palm Island/Orpheus Island area can be a hot spot for mothers and calves to rest. Young juveniles learn and show off their new skills on how to breach/jump and have fun in the flat waters around the Islands. We offer a 4-5 hour tour around the Islands stopping and spending time with each whale we see. We also visit Yanks Jetty which is fully covered with picnic tables, a swimming platform, located on Orpheus Island. We have lunch and the chance of a quick snorkel to see the beautiful coral gardens and hundreds of tropical fish surrounding the jetty. Toilets are located at the beach campgrounds. It is also a good time of year to spot manta rays which visit in larger numbers during the winter periods. Amazingly we even saw two fur seals in 2020, that were even photographed by a passenger.
