Whale Watching tours launched from The Pass in Byron Bay, NSW Byron Bay is famous as one of the most popular whale watching locations in Australia. Each June/July Humpback whales travel past Byron Bay, Australia's most easterly point, on their annual migration from Antarctica to their breeding grounds off the Great Barrier Reef. Then in September/October the same humpback whales return with their newborn calves. Whale Watching Byron Bay is the only whale watching tour operator departing directly from Byron Bay. This allows us the quickest access to the Humpback whale migration on the Australian east coast. Whale Watching Byron Bay has been operating since 2002 making us Byron Bay’s most experienced whale watching tour operator. Over the years we have developed a tour that will provide you with a safe, informative and rewarding experience.
