What to Expect

Departing from the Gold Coast, this is one of Australia’s premier whale watching experiences. Join marine experts for a close encounter with majestic Humpback Whales aboard one of Australia’s newest and most luxurious whale watching vessels.

 

Within minutes of the Gold Coast, cruise to the ‘Humpback Highway’ and spy on the world’s largest animals from 3 spacious viewing platforms with a spectacular backdrop of the Surfers Paradise skyline. The Spirit of Migloo II is one of the most advanced whale watching vessels, with a mini keel and reduced emission engines to minimise environmental impact. It also has walk-around decks with safety railings, 360-degree unobstructed views, and capped passenger numbers to ensure no overcrowding. You can also enjoy drinks and snacks purchased onboard. 

 

During the cruise, learn more about these fascinating marine creatures and listen to unique whale songs live with an underwater microphone on board. The whale watching season on the Gold Coast runs from June to early November, as more than 30,000 humpback whales make their way north from the icy Antarctic waters to warm Queensland tropics to mate and give birth. Then, they return south again later in the season with the newborn calves teaching them to hunt, swim, and breach along the way. 

 

With various departures throughout the day, you can enjoy an early morning cruise before a day of activities on the Gold Coast or relax and sleep in with late afternoon departures available. In the unlikely event your tour fails to see a whale, you will receive a free return cruise voucher.
