A whale watching cruise is a quintessential activity while on the Gold Coast and this morning whale watching cruise will take you, your family and friends out to see these majestic creatures at play on the famous Humpback Highway.

Travel out to the open waters in luxurious comfort aboard a 32 metre wave piercing catamaran with well-equipped onboard facilities. This high-speed vessel is designed specifically for whale watching with increased stability, plenty of space and five platforms to maximize views of your once-in-a-lifetime encounter with the whales.
Throughout the whale watching cruise guests can enjoy fresh complimentary muffins for morning tea, with tea and coffee, while enjoying a smooth ride in air-conditioned comfort. Large video displays play informative documentaries about Humpback Whales during the cruise, explaining the fascinating behaviors of these whales giving you a comprehensive understanding of these highly intelligent, gentle giants. Experienced eco-guides also accompany you on the cruise offering interesting commentary along the way while helping to spot tell-tale blow holes!
