GAME FISHING
Why fish Coffs Coast? 
The Continental Shelf sits just 12 nautical miles off the Coffs Coast, less than half the distance of other well known ports. This equates to less time spent travelling from port to the deeper water and more time in the productive game fishing grounds. 
 
Marlin are plentiful off the Coffs Coast all year round, particularly Striped, while Black and Blue Marlin follow the warmer currents that flow down the coast throughout the year. 
 
Sharks, Tuna, and Mackerel are also targeted depending upon your choice of fishing.

WHALE WATCHING
The Coffs Coast is almost a secret when it comes to whale watching. Interestingly though, it is arguably one of the best locations in Australia for sighting the magnificent Humpback whale while on migration. 
 
Our whale watching season is longer than in Hervey Bay spanning from early June through to late November as we first track the north bound migration to warmer breeding waters and then the south bound migration as the whales head to the colder Antarctic waters to feed and recuperate before make the long trek again next year. 
 
The close proximity of the Continental Shelf to the mainland makes the Coffs Harbour port an ideal location to base whale watching tours. In the main, the Humpback whales travel along the coastline land side of the Continental Shelf and in so doing they effectively pass through a "gateway" only 12 nautical miles wide just off Coffs Harbour. 
 
This ensures that, weather permitting, tours from Coffs Harbour have an extremely high success rate in sighting the whales - in excess of 95% of trips. 
 
With whales sighted as close as the harbour entrance (we have the photos!), possibly the cheapest trips on the eastern seaboard of Australia and a location close to Sydney and Brisbane why would you chose anywhere else to experience the splendour of whale watching? 
 
To maximise the prospect of our guests sighting whales, Sea Experience Charters combines with flight charter operators to provide daily aerial surveys of the ocean off the Coffs Coast to pinpoint the location of whales and the direction they are travelling. 
 
Number of Passengers 
Luxury trips aboard "Obsession" undertakes one luxury whale watching trip per day for maximum of only 10 passengers, which includes extended time with the whales and a fully catered gourmet lunch whilst anchored in the calm waters of the harbour, before returning to the marina.
