The Whale Watching Experience

The sapphire waters of Moreton Bay are home to migratory humpback whales from June to October. These stunning creatures journey 10,000 kilometres through the bay for warmer waters during the winter, moving from Antarctica to the subtropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Visit Moreton Bay Region for a guaranteed encounter with these charming animals while enjoying the bay views on the comfortable catamaran. The tour’s Eco Ranger will tell you everything you want to know about the whales that pass through Moreton Bay Region. The experience also comes with access to the Tangalooma Island Resort facilities!

Having fought back from the edge of extinction due to whaling, experts estimate there is a population of 80,000 humpbacks worldwide, with 50,000 in the southern hemisphere alone. Over 18,000 whales journey through Moreton Bay Region each year, including Australia’s favourite white whale Migaloo. But you’ll miss them all if you don’t book your Tangalooma Island Resort experience now!

What’s so special about Moreton Island?

It’s easy to see why the whales pass the warm and relaxing seaside paradise of Moreton Island each year. The third largest sand island in the world, Moreton Island’s steep sand dunes, gorgeous wildflowers, picturesque beaches and stunning sea life make it the perfect getaway location all year round. Walk the rocky headlands, explore nearby creeks and lagoons, or see the 32 colours of sand in the Moreton Island Desert. Rich with local history and culture, your Moreton Island daytrip experience can be enjoyed at any pace. Home to over 1,200 species of plants and animals, including dolphins, turtles, kangaroos, and sulphur-crested cockatoos, Moreton Island National Park is one of Australia’s greatest hidden treasures.
