Whale Watching Tours

 Season 2021 was one of the best seasons for many years. Fowlers Bay had in excess of 20 Mother/Calf pairs in the bay for a large part of the season. The Nullabor Bunda Cliffs viewing area had similar numbers incliuding white calfs at both locations.

The tours in 2023 will include both the Bunda Cliffs viewing and a boat cruise in Fowlers Bay.

Southern Right Whale season in South Australia is from May - October at the Head of the Great Australian Bight.

July - September are the best months to see the whales at the Great Australian Bight Marine Park before they slowly start to migrate back to the cold waters of they Antarctic.

 All tours now include a 2.5hr Fowlers Bay Whale Watching Cruise operated by EP Cruises (https://www.epcruises.com.au/TOURS.php)
