Your day trip starts as you depart Brisbane for the drive south to Surfers Paradise, where you’ll hop aboard your purpose-built whale-watching boat. While you cruise along the canals of the Nerang River, listen to a few safety instructions from crewmembers, who will point out luxurious homes along the scenic Gold Coast waterway.

Cruise past 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 make their way to these subtropical Pacific waters to give birth every May to October. Keep your eyes peeled for the whales, who may show off with jumps and splashes, as well as other marine life such as loggerhead turtles, orcas, dolphins and seabirds.

Learn about the wildlife and their marine environment from your onboard naturalist guide, and then return to shore for up to 2 hours of free time in Surfers Paradise, where you can shop in the boutiques or hang out on the beach before making the return drive to Brisbane.

The tour was great! Got to see multiple whales!
The snacks provided onboard the ferry was just average. Hopefully, more improvements will be made with regards to the snacks provided.
