Whale Season starts in June and you don’t want to miss this season!
Watch the magnificent humpback whales of Moreton Bay
, and observe them as they play in the crystal clear turquoise waters off Moreton Island.
Humpback Whales are generally curious about objects in their environment. They will often approach and circle boats which makes for great viewing.
The Humpback Whale is a very large whale: an adult can usually range between 12–16 m (40–50 ft) long and weighs approximately 36,000 kg (79,000 pounds), or 36 tonnes; females, on average, are larger than males. It is well known for its breaching (leaping out of the water), its unusually long front fins, and its complex whale song.
Whale watching tours are seasonal and there are tours available from the Island between June and November.
