TYPES OF WHALES YOU WILL SEE

A variety of whales visit a range of areas around Portland Bay & Cape Bridgewater Bay whilst they are transiting through our Southern Ocean waters each winter.
The range consists of Humpback Whales, Southern Right Whales and the occasional Orca (Killer Whale) with the most common being the Southern Right.
