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.
