Experience a Scenic Whale Watching Tour  on board our 20-metre custom built vessel, MV Endorphin.

During the cooler months (June-October), Townsville North Queensland marks a pit stop on the annual migration route of the Humpback Highway. Around 7000 humpback whales choose to rest and play with their new calves in the crystal blue waters off the coast of Queensland.

Cruise past Magnetic Island’s beautiful coastline scattered with large granite boulders and towering native hoop pines.

Keep an eye out for the abundance of marine life such as turtles, dolphins, and the secretive dugongs. Don’t forget to stretch that neck and discover the world above us with the resident Brahminy and whistling kites, and the ever-majestic white breasted sea eagles!

All while you watch enough whales to leave your whale-loving heart a flutter! Grab your binoculars or zoom lens and discover the naturally curious humpback whales. With a water level viewing deck, you can truly feel like you’re up close and personal with these ultimate ocean creatures – all on the whale’s terms of course! Tail slapping, pectoral fin waves and sometimes – full breaching is all just an added bonus during whale season.

You can board the vessel from either Townsville or Magnetic Island!

In the unlikely event we do not come across any whales we do not offer any refund as you still would have received a scenic cruise. We do not guarantee whale sightings.
