The open-deck allows for full walk-around access to places like the bow of the boat, where you often catch sight of dolphins playing in the wake.
Between August and November, humpback whales migrate from Antarctica to Australia’s eastern coastline. The humpback might not be largest whale traveling through Australian waters, reaching a maximum length of 52 feet (16 meters), but it's a beloved creature in the Australian waters. You'll quickly understand why as you watch the majestic giants perform acrobatic displays in the water. As you cruise, your knowledgeable crew shares facts about the humpbacks and other marine animals you see.
