If your kids are wasting their time with computer games and smartphones every weekend, it is time to capture their imagination in a different way and give them a break from technology. Seeing a humpback whale breach or come close to your boat is something even the most computer-bound child will be fascinated by. If you are taking your kids whale watching, remember some of these tips.
Early Morning Cruise
The best time to go whale watching in Eden or any other place around the world is early in the morning. At this time, the ocean is calm, and the kids will not complain about feeling seasick. Even if you do not have kids, it is best to book a morning trip. If you are a first-time sailor, you do not want to be out on rough waters.
If you are going to go whale watching in Australia, the best time to go is between May and November. This gives you and your family the best chance to catch a glimpse of the famous humpback whale. Whale watching season differs throughout each country and region, so you must check with the trip providers to ensure you book the most time.
The reason so many people flock to Australia, and in particular the east coast is to catch a glimpse of the humpback whale as they migrate north from the colder Antarctic waters. They do this every year, making their way to warming waters off the coast of Australia for mating season.
Best Time to Go
Although early mornings are arguably the best time to go whale watching with kids, just about any time is fine as long as you are well prepared for the day. Many parents want to know when the best time is to go, and the answer is any time during the migratory period.
Whales are out at any time of the day, so there is a great chance that your kids will come close to a Humpback whale or some other species of whale. Once you are prepared, there is no bad time to go.
Parents want to know when to bring their kids whale watching and any expert will tell you that there is no specific time. As long as you go during the whale migration season, you are almost guaranteed to see whales of all species. Once you are prepared, your kids will have an educational and fun day on the waters.
