Schedule and Prices
From mid June to early November our whale watching trips depart daily (if weather and sea conditions are suitable) from the Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour in the heart of the Cape Byron Marine Park. Our daily departure times are:
- Monday to Friday: 8:30am and 11:30am
- Saturday: 1:30pm
- Sunday: 8:30am and 11:30am
(weather permitting and subject to change)
Each whale watching tour goes for a minimum of two and a half hours. This does not include travel time to the boat, it is the minimum time spent on the water. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled departure to check in.
Due to Covid19 restrictions, we can currently only take a limited number of passengers per trip. Unfortunately, we have therefore had to temporarily increase our prices to keep our tours running until Covid19 restrictions are lifted and we can run at full capacity again.
Prices under Covid19 restrictions:
- Adults $119
- Children under 12 years of age $119
- Private Charter: You can charter our vessel for an exclusive private whale watching trip. Cost: $899
- Gift Vouchers available
Cancellation Policy: Please note that 48 hours notice will be required for all cancellations. Cancellations within 48 hours of departure will incur the full cost of the booking. If we deem sea or bar conditions to be unsafe or too unpleasant for our customers, we will cancel the trip and there will be no charge. For groups of 5 or more, a 50% deposit is required at the time of booking. This deposit will be fully refunded if a cancellation is made at least 5 days before departure of the boat. Group booking cancellation with less than 5 days notice, but more than 48 hours notice will incur a fee of 50% of the total cost of the booking. Group booking cancellations within 48 hours of departure will incur the full cost of the booking.
Booking Requirements: All participants must be able to speak and understand English. The minimum age is 5 years. Our tours are not suitable for expectant mothers or anyone with back injuries.
