whale watching in noosaWhale season is here!

Do we need to say anymore? Whale season in Noosa brings that extra slice of magic to your day when you spot these guys playing in Noosa’s Laguna Bay on your morning walk or swim. These jumping and breaching giants of the sea cruise in to Noosa every year from June on their annual migration to warmer waters to birth their calves. On their way back south, the whales nurture their young in our protected beaches and bays and make for breathtaking viewing. Watch the whales frolic and play in their natural habitat with Noosa Ocean Rider while taking in a different view of Noosa’s pristine coves and beaches.
