How does you and a mate sitting in a kayak bobbing up and down on the waves of the pacific off Australia's most easterly point sound? Pretty awesome right? How about if you add some gentle giants, humpback whales? Then it goes beyond amazing to be a highlight! During May to November when the humpback whales migrate past Byron Bay, Cape Byron Kayaks runs tours so you can get up close and personal with the majestic animals.
It is an amazing feeling to be sitting out in the ocean when you suddenly see a spray go up in the distance. You then have to try to look over the waves to see them come up for air. Some of the whales, particularly calves can get quiet close which is both exhilarating and scary at the same time.
