What you need to know

Witness the spectacular migration of the majestic Humpback Whales off the coast of Cairns and enjoy time on one of Australia's top ten beaches, Nudey Beach, at the picturesque Fitzroy Island. From mid July to the end of August, Humpback Whales take a holiday of their own leaving the cold waters of Antarctica to frolic in the Great Barrier Reef and give birth to their young calves. You can enjoy a front row seat to this natural spectacle on this Cairns adventure which includes a 90 minute whale watching tour and a choice of 2 hours or 4 hours free time on Fitzroy Island.

Choose the 9am ferry from Cairns and enjoy up to 4 hours free time on Fitzroy Island plus a midday Cairns whale watching cruise. However, if you prefer a sleep in, the 11am ferry departure from Cairns gives you the option to join the midday Cairns whale watching cruise with only 2 hours free time on Fitzroy Island. Get in quick and book your Cairns Whale Watching and Fitzroy Island adventure right here before the Humpback Whales leave for another year.
