Our Southern Right Whales
Our gentle and endangered Southern Right Whales are mammoth in size weighing in at 80-90 ton.
Tragically their name was coined because they were very inquisitive and occupied waters close to the beach to give birth to their young so they were the right whale to hunt in the southern ocean.
Today they still approach the vessels to investigate and are still the gentle giants of the ocean.
Southern Right Whales will give birth and nurture their young extremely close to the coastline using the shallow waters and the surf break noise to mask the communications between mother and calf.
This sound footprint is utilised by most cetaceans as a way to protect their young from predation.
LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF THE WHALES™
Whale Watch experts will guide you through the cruise with in-depth knowledge of the whales as they pair up with their partners on the journey north and their return migration south with new born calves. An underwater camera and hydrophone allows you to watch and listen to the dinosaurs in their natural habitat - an unforgettable experience!
