Southern Right Whales have been visiting Warrnambool for hundreds of years. Once they were hunted almost to the point of extinction, but since whaling was outlawed in 1935, their numbers have been growing.

In summer, Southern Right whales live in the sub-Antarctic. In winter, they migrate to warmer waters around the southern areas of Australia.

The females migrate to the “nursery” areas close to the shore to bear their calves, while the males, yearlings and young adults remain further out to sea.

When Fiona Van Kempen owner of Warrnambool Tours had her first business ‘Smoko Express’ she spent every weekend of the whale season at Logans Beach with her food van ( before the carpark was even sealed).   Over those years Fiona made friends with many whale enthusiasts.    Let Fiona share with you knowledge from these experts & the many stories of the remarkable actions of the Southern Right Whales she has encountered in that time. 

Get on board Warrnambool Tours Whale Express & spend an hour whale spotting with the advantage of supplied binoculars keep an eye out Dolphins & Seals who also share the waves.  Don’t miss out call Fiona to secure your seat (max 11 seats per trip).

Although Whale sightings are likely we cannot guarantee.  Because we are viewing these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat there are days when they are not feeling social (especially before bearing their calf) if this happens please take in the natural beauty of this spectacular coastline.

How lucky are we that the Southern Right Whales love Warrnambool as much as we do & keep  wanting to return…
