When is the best time to come to swim with a whale?
The official humpback whale swimming season is from the 1st August to the 30th November 2017.
However, we find after mid to late October, as the temperatures during the day heat up, that tours become less pleasant, and more and more tours need to be cancelled due to not having minimum numbers as fewer and fewer tourists come to visit.
So our season will be from 1st August 2017 until at least the 15th October, and possibly the 31st October.
Given its only the second year of Whale Swimming ever, its hard to see a best time to come. Having said that, the earlier you come the more likely you are to encounter whalesharks and manta rays during your Humpback Whale Tours. (However from a SCUBA diving point of view, visibility just gets better and better as the heat causes higher air pressure.)
