What You Can Expect
Your cruise continues past the beautiful South Stradbroke Island to the nearby waters of the Australian Whale Sanctuary. Each year between the months of May and October, humpbacks whales migrate to these subtropical waters to mate and give birth. You'll have the opportunity to see the whales at play, often performing spectacular aerial leaps. There will be plenty of photo opportunities as bottle-nose dolphins, giant loggerhead turtles, killer whales and various sea birds also call these waters home. Your marine naturalist guide will also provide informative and unique commentary and the experienced crew are dedicated to providing you with the ultimate whale watching experience.
Following your cruise, you'll have 45 mins of free time to explore Surfers Paradise at your own leisure Stroll through the designer boutiques and explore the stunning beaches before your return transfer to Brisbane.
Great day trip from Brisbane. Whale - yes just one but kept visiting- turned up. Well worth it.
Amazing experience, very friendly staff highly recommend it!
More time at Surfer's Paradise would be great we only had 50 minutes there.
Amazing cruising from the river to ocean view. Down size was wasting time to find where the whales were.
Whale watching was really good but after that we got only 2 hrs, not sufficient to have a look around in Gold coast. Would recommend it..
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.
Thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip out to sea and whale watching. The crew were informative and the boat was very comfortable. I was quite disappointed that we only had 1 hour at Surfers Paradise, the itinerary clearly stated '2 hours free time'. I felt very rushed.
