Whales in Paradise was a perfect choice for whale watching. The small group tour was well managed with free time in Surfers Paradise followed by more than an hour with three frolicking whales, including several close encounters. Highly recommended
Outstanding crew extremely knowledgeable. Saw many whales, as promised.
Great day trip from Brisbane. Whale - yes just one but kept visiting- turned up. Well worth it.
Cruise was great but organization was poor. The boat holds 320 people and there were long lines and not enough seating. Get in line early. The buffet had chicken, pasta, salad and bread. The food was above average but not very creative. The welcome drink was either a champagne punch or a Becks.
Nice trip... wish I had seen more of the whales rather than just the hump and tail.
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.

Watching whales is a beautiful experience regardless how you do so. Yet, I had done so before with other companies that put more emphasis on the whales than the commentary about them. As a result we had the whales come closer on those other times. That is why this time was a little disappointing to know that we only had whales from afar. But it was an okay experience.

Actual length of trip too short and lunch should have been covered as the trip is quites costly.
