Luxury Whale Watching Private Charters – Cairns Great Barrier Reef

Posted on July 25, 2013 by

Majestic, massive and magnificent! Giant Humpback Whales are arriving in large numbers to the waters of the Great Barrier Reef as we speak!

Reports of sightings have been flowing in by several of the Reef Day Boats and needless to say I’m a little jealous! I’ve been lucky enough to see these beautiful creatures play and breech on the surface several times over the years and every time my breath is taken away, it’s a sight you never get sick of!

It’s a long and tireless journey the whales make from the colder waters down south, all the way to the Great Barrier Reef to give birth and rear their young in the warmer, tropical waters for a few months until they are strong enough to start the journey back down to the Antartic.

Unlike southern destinations such as Harvey Bay and Port Stephens, Cairns and Port Douglas do not have many dedicated Whale Watching tours as most of the boats are utilised daily to transport people to their snorkel and dive locations on the Great Barrier Reef.

If you want an up close and personal encounter with Giant Humpback Whales and Dwarf Minke Whales, why not charter your very own Private Whale Watching boat!?

Here in Cairns we have a luxury 47 Ft vessel that can take up to 12 guests out to the reef to spot these beautiful creatures in action. This particular boat has a roving permit, which basically allows them access to over 200 nautical miles of Open Ocean and numerous reef locations to maximise your chance of an encounter with Whales!  Included in your trip is a gourmet lunch, delicious snacks, light refreshments, morning and afternoon tea, a chance to snorkel on at an exclusive outer reef location, towels and sunscreen. The boat is totally yours for the day and all private charters are catered to suit the individual needs of guests.

The “Whale Season” is from now (July) until September and we still have a few spots left for the season, but they won’t last long! So give us a call today on 1300 761 612 for more information or to secure your Great Barrier Reef whale watching booking!
