Coffs Harbour Whale Watching

The Solitary Islands Marine Park is a meeting place where Humpback whales converge on the coastline during their annual migration from Antarctica. This makes the Coffs Coast one of the best and most convenient locations in Australia to experience the whales up close and personal.

Coffs Harbour has a safe access harbour and no sand bar, so our Coffs Harbour whale watching season operates uninterrupted from June to November annually, weather and sea conditions permitting.

As the whales travel close to the coastline we generally sight whales within 15 minutes of leaving the harbour.
