Byron Bay dolphins - all year round

There are estimated to be around 1,500 dolphins in the greater Byron Bay area. These are called resident dolphins and will live in this area their entire lives. The species most commonly seen on our tours include inshore and offshore bottlenose dolphins, along with some Indo Pacific humpback dolphins and common dolphins.

Byron Bay Whales - May to November

During their migration north, whales come within 3 km of the coast. During the southern migration they bring their calves into the calm waters to rest and feed. The calves are very inquisitive and playful, they often approach our sea kayak tours with the mother at their side passing just meters from our kayaks.

Cape Byron Marine Park

Established in 2002 extends approximately 37 km along the coastline from the Brunswick River to Lennox Head. The marine park conserves many subtropical marine habitats which support high levels of biodiversity including some threatened and protected species. Adjacent to the Arakwal National Park The marine park takes in many sites of cultural significance to Aboriginal people.
