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 to 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 maximise views of your once-in-a-lifetime encounter with the whales.

Throughout the whale watching cruise guests can enjoy complimentary fresh muffins for morning tea, with tea and coffee, while enjoying a smooth ride in air-conditioned comfort. Our expert crew will provide informative commentary about Humpback Whales during the cruise, explaining the fascinating behaviours 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 which makes for a memorable seafaring adventure for the whole family!

We took the Morning Whale Watch Cruise, amazing value! It was a great day as we headed out being served fresh muffins & coffee. We didn't have to wait long before our first whale sighting and from that point on we were spoiled with numerous sightings, accompanied by an informative commentary. We would thoroughly recommend the Morning Whale Watch Cruise and it would be one of the first attractions we would re-book for on any future holiday to the Gold Coast.

We undertook the whale watching recently; it was a fabulous experience with plenty of whales to observe, knowledgeable crew and friendly staff to cater to our needs. At all times they were very respectful of the magnificent whales. The boat provided air-conditioned comfort as well as options to be outside where you are closer to the whale action. Can't recommend them highly enough. It's definitely a must do.

I went to the Morning Whale Watching Cruise and booked the ticket beforehand. The tour is very informative as well as enjoyable. The sight of Gold Coast city coastline with crystal clear water and cloudy blue sky is certainly out of this world. As impressive as it sound, nothing can beat the sight of Humpback Whale and the calves breaching and doing the acrobatic stuff. This is truly one of my most memorable experience ever and totally recommended this cruise.

Mohammad Mazidul | 7 months ago

It was an amazing tour. The tour start and finish in right time. The cruse was very neat and clean. The attenders of the cruise were very skillful and friendly, indeed they provided great support. When we watched whales, they also provided about the description of each and every whale. Their narration was very effective and realistic. It was only for whale tour but fortunately we also watched lots of dolphins as well. They are just played with us all the time, it was tremendous. One thing I like to share about their snacks, it was very tasty and helpful. I enjoyed it lot and highly recommended to other people.

It was great to see the whales at close distance. All of my family members and almost every tourist on the boat were vomiting due to sea sick, it would be good if the company offered sea sick remedy for their guests.

Top tips

"As you head out into the open ocean and if you suffer from seasickness, head to the pharmacy prior to your whale watch cruise and grab some seasickness remedy."
