The winter months are peak whale-watching season - when the humpback and southern right whales make their migrations through the bay. Jervis Bay Wild provides an extensive list of eco cruise services including whale and dolphin watching cruises.
Here are some tips and tricks to helping you spot the whales:
Whales migrate through the waters between May – October as they leave the colder waters of the ocean and come to warmer waters with their calves.
Get a good set of binoculars. Sometimes whales come pretty close to the shore, and you’ll see them clearly.
Find a good location. This could be at a lookout within the Booderee National Park, in Jervis Bay or even on a whale-watching boat!
Be patient, sometimes it can take a long time to see a whale!
