Whale Watching Jervis Bay Frequently Asked Questions
This blog post is a one stop shop for all your immediate Whale Watch Cruise in Jervis Bay questions.
When is it whale watching Season? When is the best time to see the Whales?
The best time to go whale watching, does vary depending on the migrations direction, June/July when the whales are travelling north is a great time to get out and about, we have great sightings at this time of year. We do for the most part have to travel to the outside of Jervis Bay offering a very impressive view of the spectauclar Sea Cliffs protecting Jervis Bay. Often whales are accompanied by travelling pods of oceanic dolphins- who are super fast and ride the wake of the migrating whales. We have even seen Risso’s dolphins too!
On the southern migration September and October are fantastic times to cruise with us too. Many of our sightings during this time are INSIDE Jervis Bay when the mothers and the calves relax, rest and sometimes even play! Which is an absolute delight for all!
The best time to cruise on Jervis Bay is when you are relaxed and have time to unwind, enjoy and learn.

As whale watching does head out in to the open ocean there can be the odd occasion where it is unsuitable for cruising with large swell and wind. – Perfect conditions for sea sickness. In these circumstances we will try to give you as much warning as possible to reschedule for a nicer day.
