            Dolphin and Whale Tours

            Amaroo Cruises 

            Whale Watching Season – June to November
            Come and experience an unforgettable Whale... Watching Tour aboard the Whale Watching Adventure Cruise vessel the “AMAROO”. It will carry you into the wonderful world of the majestic Humpback Whales, where dreams can come true. Humpback Whales are the most inquisitive and acrobatic of all the great whales. They love to leap out of the water, smash their huge tails and pectoral fins against the surface, and will often approach the boat for a closer look.
            Dolphin cruises run most days at 10:00am (weather permitting) from late November to May.
            There are approximately 250-300 resident inshore Bottle-Nosed Dolphins inhabiting the waters of Forster-Tuncurry. Further offshore we encounter Common Dolphins, sometimes massing in the hundreds all as one pod. Quite a spectacle to say the least! Groups often surface, jump, splash and play together. Often they will porpoise or leap from the water, performing exciting acrobatic displays. They are among the fastest Dolphins in the world, reaching speeds of 40km/h. The third species of Dolphin we may also stumble upon is the Oceanic Dolphin. This species is the largest of all Dolphins we encounter. Oceanic Dolphins can grow to 2.5m and weigh in at a staggering 200kgs! Oceanics are also famous for their aerial acrobatics and freakish speed. We may also encounter a variety of sea birds including Ospreys, White Bellied Sea Eagles, Whistling Kites, Gannets and Albatross to name a few. Also sharks, seals, penguins and turtles are frequently sighted. 0419 333 445 [embed][/embed]
