booked whale watch at last

At long last have made a booking to go out next week for a whale watch cruise, now a silly question any one been on it this time of year can you tell me if it is cold when you get out into the open sea, know it will be windy etc. Coming down from north queensland and need to know if I need a really warm jacket for that trip

we went a few weeks ago and although we're brits (more used to the cold) we did have jackets. I'd recommend layers as you'll need the jacket when the boat is moving but may want to remove it if the boat stops for long (ours did as a whale came to investigate us).

Although it is like summer at the moment, August can get cold westerly winds so yes be prepared and bring your wind jacket.
