Whale Watching on Keswick Island

Attractions Mackay Islands


Humpback Whales can be frequently seen around Keswick Island during their annual migration through the Whitsundays between the months of July to September.

Seeing the whales frolicking nearby, or guiding a newborn calf through the protected waters of
Egremont Passage, is a truly magical experience.

There are many spots on Keswick from which you can watch the whales - be it from the deck of the Keswick Kiosk, from Basil Bay beach or from any of the prominent headlands. If you are watching whales from your boat, be sure to comply with the Australian National Guidelines for Whale and Dolphin Watching.
