Whale Watching in Huskisson
Tours with Jervis Bay Whales depart from Husky's Wharf, and the company guarantees a return trip if you don't spot any whales the first time around. Jervis Bay Eco Adventures also offer whale- and dolphin-sighting tours as well as the chance to visit a seal colony and explore the rugged cliffs and sea caves of nearby Beecroft Peninsula.
Humpbacks and southern right whales are the most commonly sighted in these waters, and humpback whales tend to breach more than others species, although scientists aren't sure why. Chances are you'll also spot whales blowing air, water and vapour through their blowholes as they surface to breath â each species has its own distinctive blow. It's easiest to spot the blow during late morning and early afternoon when the glare isn't so strong on the water.
If you'd rather whale-watch from the shore, you're in luck â dolphins often cavort right off the beach and occasionally whales swim into the bay with their young. You'll also find good vantage points from the headlands around Huskisson
