WHAT TO EXPECT

From September to November they return south to the cool waters of Antarctica after mating and calving in the warm, tropical waters of Queensland.
On your journey look out on stunning coastal scenery including remote sandy beaches, picturesque coves, isolated islands and towering rock formations. See spectacular views along the Prom, including Rabbit Island, Sealers Cove, Refuge Cove and the Wilsons Promontory Lightstation.
Delight in the opportunity to spot diverse marine wildlife such as shy albatrosses, Australian fur seals, common dolphins and of course the majestic humpback and southern right whales.
