Whale Watch

Whale watching cruises on Pacific Explorer depart daily from June to November each year when the Humpback whales are on their annual migration.

Cruises leave from Coffs Harbour Marina at 8.30am each morning [weather permitting] and usually last about 2.5 hours. Morning tea is supplied and bookings are essential as we only take 23 people on each trip.



Snorkel cruises operate on minimum numbers from December to March each year. We depart 8.30am and are usually out for about 4 hours, depending on the time spent in the water. Morning tea, fruit, cheese & biscuits are supplied as well as wetsuits, mask, snorkel & fins. Bookings are essential.



Island & Dolphin Watch

Island cruises run  from December to April each year. We depart from Coffs Harbour Marina for a 3 hour cruise where we will take in Split Solitary Island and go in search of dolphins. If the weather is suitable we will set sail for a quiet cruise back to the harbour. Bookings are essential as we need minimum numbers to run our cruises.


Private Charters


Pacific Explorer is available for private or group charters subject to an hourly charge for the boat and crew, with a minimum 2.5 hours charter. So why not organise a twilight sail with family and friends.
