The sign is behind perspex, making the faded text a bit hard to read, with a transcription to follow:

A Right Whale of a TIme

"Although the ocean looks empty and infinite, these coastal waters are a migration route for whales. If you look carefully out to sea you might spot one.

"Betwen June and July, thousands of humpback whales and a smaller number of southern right whales pass by unnoticed, heading north to the warmer tropical waters to breed. Then, between August and October they return to the foodrich Antarctic water, where they remain for the summer.
