Come and see the whales!
Winter is whale season in the Whitsundays and if you're chartering with us, there's an excellent chance you'll have a whale encounter right off your boat! Remember to remain 300 metres away and turn off engines if they approach you.
The best time to see some of the thousands of humpback and pilot whales which arrive in our warm, protected waters to give birth is between June and September. Then they head south again. Come charter with us. Read more>
