Coffs Harbour has a safe access harbour and no sand bar, so our whale watching season operates uninterrupted from June to November annually, weather and sea conditions permitting.
As the whales travel close to the coastline we generally sight whales within 15 minutes of leaving the harbour.
Cruises operate every day from June to November and are only influenced by weather and sea conditions.
Average Duration: 2 Hours
Everyone is a spectator on our boat. Our sole aim is to give passengers the very best whale watching experience possible.
Above all else, your safety and enjoyment is paramount to us and we will not compromise that to cruise when we believe weather or sea conditions are not favourable.
We are passionate about whale watching and giving our guests the very best experience with the whales. It’s what we specialise in and why our boat is specifically designed with spacious open decks and interrupted views.
We love what we do and try our hardest to ensure our guests experience the same thrills and enjoyment from being with the majestic whales as we do.
As the whales are constantly in motion, it is critical you are free to move around the boat to enjoy the most of your time with the whales. Pacific Explorer has no restrictive seating so there is no need to squeeze inside a cabin or side by side other passengers, ferry style. You are welcome to roam about Pacific Explorer as you interact with the whales.
