Making their first appearance this season, Humpback Whales have been spotted recently passing within just a few hundred metres off Voyages Heron Island, as they make their journey further north to warmer waters.

A pod of approximately 12 migrating whales have been sighted in the Wistari Channel treating guests and staff to a spectacular show from the beach and the island jetty.

The whale migration season is the ultimate time for families and nature lovers to visit Heron Island and get close to nature.

For a limited time only, guests staying four nights or more on Heron Island can have their breakfast, lunch and dinner included for FREE! And kids still stay and eat for free.

PADI Enriched Air Diving (Nitrox):  Emperors Wings can provide PADI Training and has an onboard Nitrox filling unit giving crew the option to fill tanks as required.  Nitrox enriches the air with a higher concentration of oxygen allowing divers to dive more often, reach greater depths or stay underwater for longer periods.
