Morning Whale Watching Cruise
HIGHLIGHTS
  • 3 hour whale watching cruise
  • Muffins & morning tea onboard
  • Whale sighting guarantee
  • Great, scenic cruise

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. Each year from June-November the Humpback Whales embark on their epic migration from the icy southern waters of Antarctica to the tropics, and now it’s your chance to see this incredible natural phenomenon! 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!

Humpback whales are well known for their playful acrobatics and during the morning whale watching cruise you may see tail flukes, pec slaps, spy hopping and spectacular breaching displays, giving delighted passengers an idea of how massive these whales really are - up close! During this fantastic Gold Coast whale watching cruise not only will you see whales in their natural habitat, you may also see other playful marine life such as friendly dolphins, turtles and sea birds making for a memorable seafaring adventure for the whole family!

We missed out on seeing the whales due to bad weather conditions. But we were treated to a day at the island, it was a magical day so much to see and do. The staff were very friendly and the entertainment both on the island and on the boat was fantastic. I would reccomend anyone wanting to do the whale watching to include the day on the island as they will not be disappointed at all.

My first time doing whalewatching on the Gold Coast and I was utterly disappointed. It was overcrowded. Only saw 2 whales. Whales only showed up on one side of the boat. Too bad for the ppl on the other side. Cruise was also too short. We left the jetty at 9am and back before 11.30am. Never again with this company.

After boarding the boat, we were greeted by the friendly and very enthusiastic staff who kept us entertained while we waited for the whales to make an appearance. Once the gentle giants appeared, we were able to follow them all the way up the coast as they entertained us with amazing acrobatics, from a mere 100m away. A definite must do while the whales are in town!
