Moreton Bay Region – Is the place to see the whales

Between the months of June and November, Moreton Bay Region is the best place to go Whale Watching near Brisbane.

Moreton Bay plays host to one of Australia’s best marine life tours – Brisbane Whale Watching. Led by the only woman captain operating a whale watching venture in the South Pacific Rim – Captain Kerry – guests of Brisbane Whale Watching can witness magnificent humpback whales just 30 minutes north of Brisbane.

Brisbane Whale Watching’s multi-million dollar vessel, the “Eye-Spy” is the best way to explore Moreton Bay. Prepare yourself for a top-level sun deck and 360-degree walk around the upper and lower decks. It is also fitted with an underwater microphone to capture all the whales' songs and sounds.

But whales aren’t all you can expect to see on this iconic Moreton Bay tour. Keep your eyes peeled for sea turtles, dugongs, dolphins, sharks and fish, who all enjoy the waters of Moreton Bay.
