While on your Gold Coast whale watching tour, you will learn all about Australia’s humpback whales. The crew and onboard marine biologist will act as your expert guides and share details about whale migration patterns and habitats. You will also have the opportunity to observe other marine life in the area, including dolphins, sharks, turtles and albatross.

The humpback whales pass through the waters of the Gold Coast during their annual migration, which makes the area a fantastic spot for catching a glimpse of these magnificent animals.

Starting in June and lasting through August, the whales begin migrating north from Antarctica. During these winter months, the whales give birth in the warmer waters of the Australian coast - which means that you might even be lucky enough to see a newborn calf with its mother on your whale watching cruise!

Around September, the whales begin their journey back southbound toward the Southern Ocean. The Gold Coast is perfectly situated on the coast of eastern Australia to allow for the spotting of these spectacular mammals. While you will be able to see the whales at any point during whale watching season, the best time to observe them is between late June and late July.

As you relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery, your crew will be scanning the water for whales. When they spot a whale splashing around in the water or exhaling through its blowhole, they will quickly alert everyone on the boat - so make sure you have your camera ready! At this point, the captain will find a safe spot for everyone aboard the boat to observe these gorgeous creatures.

Over the course of your 2.5-3 hour whale watching experience, you will hear commentary and stories from your crew. Take in the sights on one of the 360-degree viewing decks, all while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea along with some biscuits. You can even enjoy an alcoholic beverage from the fully licensed bar on board if you choose. You’re also welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks on the boat.

The boat itself is designed to accommodate tour guests in style and comfort. You’ll enjoy the luxury of the 24-metre Catamaran, complete with large windows, an air-conditioned interior, upper and lower decks and comfortable seating. Your professional crew will ensure that all of your needs are met as you enjoy a day out on the water.
