Your cruise starts as you board your purpose-built whale-watching boat in Surfers Paradise and take off along the canals of the Nerang River. Listen to a quick safety briefing from crewmembers, who will point out some of the most luxurious homes along the scenic waterway.
Pass by South Stradbroke Island and into the Australian Whale Sanctuary, a protected piece of the ocean surrounding Australia that’s part of the annual migration of humpback whales, who come to these subtropical waters from May to October to give birth. Keep your eyes peeled for whales, who may show off with jumps and splashes, as well as other marine life such as orcas, loggerhead turtles, dolphins and seabirds.
Learn about the wildlife and their marine environment from your onboard naturalist guide. Your cruise ends with return to the departure point.
