Itinerary

Whale Watching Tours Cairns

Cairns really has only two seasons in the year, the dry season and the green season.

The dry season is the northern winter season and this is when the giant Humpback Whale and Dwarf Minke Whales begin their annual migration to the safe waters of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Dependant on water temperatures these majestic creatures make their way north along the East coast of Australia in search of warm and safe waters to calve and search for new mates during the months of May to September.

Tailed on this annual migration by the cold water predators such as the Great White Shark, our protected coral reef barrier provides the perfect location and opportunity for the Humpbacks and Dwarf Minke Whales to raise their young over these months and fatten them up for the return journey southward to the Antarctic. 

These massive whales have to swim an epic 12,000-kilometre journey to reach the Great Barrier Reef and do not stop to eat along the way as they are driven to keep swimming by their internal migrational instincts.
