The actual whale watching tour was very enjoyable. However, we chose the inclusive lunch deal, which meant that we had no time at all to explore Surfer's Paradise. The 30 mins we did had meant we rushed lunch and were not able to relax and enjoy it as much as we could. In this instance, the estimated 2 hours free time was misleading. I would accept somewhere over an hour, but 30 mins to me is not acceptable when considering what we were expecting to have.
