Locally Owned Whale Watching

We are Townsville locals who love the marine environment we have surrounding our great city. We love the Reefs, swimming in creeks, fishing, camping, and of course whale watching!

After 20 years of Great Barrier Reef (GBR) operations, we began whale watching tours in 2013. They were initially from our 6m RIB’s exploring the wonders of the Palm Island Group, originally identified by our marine biologists as a whale ‘hotspot’.

We were amazed with the variety and diversity of marine life were able to encounter, with Whales spotted as frequently as in the Palms.

See you on the water.
