The Humpback Whale season in Cairns is at it’s peak from July to September. This forms part of an annual migration of approximately 4000 whales escaping bracing cold conditions in Antarctica to rear their young in the warmer waters of Australia’s east coast. Researchers believe approximately 2000 of these Whales make the 10,000km round trip to the Cairns region annually.

 

Reef Magic Cruises pioneered dedicated Whale Watching Tours in the far north region, commencing operation in July 2009 as the only company offering this unique experience.  In our first season we boasted a 99% success rate with whale encounters on all but one departure making this activity a reliable nature tour option for Cairns.

 

Tours are conducted on a stable 22m fast catamaran with passenger numbers held well below the vessels capacity to ensure maximum viewing opportunities for all guests.

Please Note: Please be aware that this is a seasonal activity based around the whales movements. Tours are conducted in known whale hot-spots and timed to coincide with the peak sighting period for Humpback Whales in Cairns. Despite our best efforts whale encounters can not be guaranteed and refunds not available in the event whales are not seen. This cruise will only run when they can be very confident in seeing whales. The season could end on any date and with little notice.

Fitzroy island has always been a favourite for both locals and visitors to Cairns due to it's close proximity to the mainland.  National Park covers 94% of Fitzroy Islands 339 Hectares.
