Often, when you plan your family holiday, you think of the usual activities: go to the beach, go out to eat, and go sightseeing wherever you are. While all of those things are fun and exciting, maybe this summer you can try and change things up a bit. It is always a great idea to introduce the people you love to things that are new and that they have never experienced before.
New experiences and adventures lead to personal development as well as just bringing joy and knowledge to your loved ones. That is why you may want to look into whale watching on your next holiday.
What Makes Whale Watching Special?
One of the best things about whale watching is that it is something that we can’t entirely control. We go to so many places that are entirely manmade and were created for the purpose of human enjoyment but there are so many natural pleasures to be had. Sydney whale watching is a way to take joy from the way our world works and the beauty and simplicity of nature.
One thing that is also exciting about the experience is that no two times will be the same. Whales migrate and change patterns so even if you go whale watching more than once, you can’t predict what you will see. Beyond that, the whale is just a stunning and magnificent creature. If you haven’t seen one in real life, it is hard to explain just how life-changing being up close and personal with these animals is.
No matter how many times you have seen a whale on television, you will not be prepared for the true beauty that you will experience seeing one in the wild.
When Is the Best Time to See the Whales?
Because this is all a natural experience, you want to follow the regular migration patterns to ensure that you will see the whales when you visit. Each year from May to August, there is a migration of thousands of whales from Antarctica to Queensland in search of warmer waters and that will be the best time to guarantee a sighting. With a knowledgeable tour guide leading the way on your boat, you will be able to learn about the natural patterns and migrations of the whales as you are actually witnessing it first-hand, putting you at the centre of nature.
As far as times to go to see the whales, you can have a lot of different experiences and still witness the whales. If you are with the family, you can go on an informative and fun day cruise but if you would rather have a romantic setting for this beautiful experience, there are also sunset cruises available as well.
Everyone can enjoy nature and you truly haven’t seen it all until you have seen these magnificent creatures first-hand.
