Nestled between two of Port Stephen’s most idyllic bay beaches – Shoal Bay Beach and Little Beach near Nelson Bay - Marty’s at Little Beach offers 15 deluxe, self-contained apartments, a swimming pool, free wi-fi, plasma TV, Foxtel, balcony and poolside barbecue.
Marty’s new ‘Winter Warmer Whale Watch’ package is available from $290 per couple midweek (Sunday to Thursday night) or from $340 for weekends (Friday and Saturday) and includes two night’s accommodation, a 2.5-hour whale-watching cruise off Port Stephens with Imagine Cruises and two woollen beanies, a thermos of coffee or tea and Tim Tams to take on the cruise. The deal is valid from June 1 to August 31, 2013.

The package is also available for families from $470 midweek or from $500 on weekends including two nights’ accommodation in an executive two-bedroom apartment for two adults and two children aged two to 16, four whale-watching cruise tickets, four beanies and enough hot chocolate, coffee and Tin Tams to keep the clan warm and snug at sea.

Marty's at Little Beach poolAs one of Australia’s premier whale-watching venues, Port Stephens draws large numbers of whale-seeking visitors each winter, with local cruise operators meeting the growing demand and each scoring close to a 100 per cent sighting rate on every departure during the area’s extended whale-watching season from May to November..

Situated 2½ hours north of Sydney, Port Stephens and its marine park sit right next to the migration path of the humpback whales. Dubbed the ‘Humpback Highway’, the route is used by more than 18,000, 50-tonne humpback whales each year as they migrate north up the coast to breed and then return back to Antarctic waters later in the year. The number of whales seen off Port Stephens is increasing by around 10 per cent a year.
