Whale Watching Charters

The Sapphire Coast is one of the few places in the world you can see whales feed during their migration.

Whale watching charters sail from Eden, Merimbula and Bermagui so you can be among the pods within minutes of leaving port.

The number of whales to our waters have been increasing each year and the season is getting longer.  The best time of the year to see them is from  September to late November, when they are south bound for Antarctica with their young.

Shearwaters also undertake their migration at this time, and have the longest migration of any bird in the world. Other marine life include resident seals, dolphins and penguins.

Sail with the Whales on Pelican 1

Experience whale watching under sail aboard the Pelican 1, at Bermagui. This 19-metre sailing catamaran and her crew specialise in marine research and education all around Australia, including studies on Blue and Sperm Whales. Bermagui is her home port and she’s a familiar sight during whale watching season.

Tours begin September 15th 2018, with 3 hour trips daily at 9am.  Experience this inspirational vessel at sea with the wind in her sails.  Haul a rope or kick back with a drink as the Sapphire Coast slips silently by.

Bookings are essential.  Cost is $80 per person, $60 per concession (includes a light morning tea) and all proceeds help to support Pelican’s environmental work.
