While standing amongst the giants of the past, your experienced guide will share some skills that will help you search the waters for migrating whales.
If you have binoculars, bring them along to help you spot these giants of the deep as they travel on their journey south to their home.
At the end of this tour, you’re welcome to share the trails with your NPWS guide on the way back to your car. Or you might like to pack a lunch and stay on this hidden gem of a beach to explore a little more on your own.
