Description

The Encounter Tour is a nature-based CoastXP immersion experience. The tour focuses closely on the annual Humpback Whale (Megaptera Novaeangliae) migration between the months of June and November each year.

Humpback Whale numbers have been increasing at a rate of over 10 percent each year, with more than 35,000 individuals passing the coast in 2017. Adult Humpback Whales grow to 14 – 18 metres in length and can weigh up to 50 tonnes. While Humpback calves are born at 2 tonnes - now that's a big baby!

Humpback Whales are some of the most inquisitive and interactive species out of all marine mammals. These spectacular whales make exceptionally long journeys from the Antarctic to the warm safe waters south of the equator each year. At CoastXP, we pride ourselves on providing you with the best experience possible.

Come and witness these amazing animals up close on our brand-new adventure boat, Atmos!
