Whales are magnificent animals. During the Gold Coast Whale Watch season, several fantastic tours are available from May to November. And if it’s your first time seeing them up close, you’ll want to have the best experience possible.

Allow us to assist you. Begin with Whales in Paradise.

Whales in Paradise

Whales in Paradise, formerly Gold Coast Whale Watching, was the first whale watching company on the Gold Coast, founded in 2004. The first whale-watching tours from Surfers Paradise to see the magnificent Humpback Whales off the Gold Coast began in June 2005.

Their first vessel, the “Sea Watch,” a 45-passenger catamaran, took their first group of whale watchers out on June 4. They changed their boat in 2007, calling it “Mahi Mahi,” a 48-passenger luxury catamaran. The Mahi Mahi proved to be a far superior whale-watching vessel.

Mahi Mahi was upgraded and can accommodate 69 passengers due to business growth in early 2008. When you combine this with their experienced and knowledgeable crew, you can have an unforgettable whale-watching experience.

Whales in Paradise Whale Watching Cruise depart from the river end of Cavill Avenue in Surfers Paradise, a short walk from the Cavill Avenue Light Rail Station. You’ll board a comfortable, purpose-built whale-watching vessel staffed by a knowledgeable crew who pridefully gives personalised service, with tours limited to smaller numbers to offer the least crowded whale-watching experience possible.

It includes a scenic waterways cruise along the Nerang River, out onto the Gold Coast Broadwater, and seeing a variety of Humpback Whales breaching and playing in the waters alongside the vessel. Bring your camera, sunscreen, hat, binoculars, and sea sickness medication. Wear warm clothing and appropriate footwear.

Sea World Cruises

Another fantastic option is Sea World Cruises. Their fleet of vessels, designed and built-in South-East Queensland based on a thorough understanding of the region’s sea conditions, allows for smoother sailing conditions and passenger comfort.

These vessels also allow you to make the most of your tour, from whale watching to calm water cruising, with wide-open decks, plenty of rail side positioning, and 360-degree unobstructed views. Furthermore, to protect our local wildlife and habitats, all vessels are thoughtfully customised with mini keels and low emission engines. Sea World Cruises is also proud to inform you that their Advanced EcoTourism Operation has been certified by EcoTourism Australia.

Their Whale Watching Cruise departs from the Sea World Cruises Main Beach Terminal in the parking lot adjacent to Sea World at Main Beach. In just 20 minutes, you’ll arrive at the ancient underwater corridor known as the Humpback Highway.

There, you can get a breathtaking view of 35,000 migrating whales. Their aerial displays are spectacular and acrobatic. Mother whales tenderly care for their calves. Feel dwarfed by the size of gentle giants as they approach the vessel with curiosity. Keep your camera handy because whales aren’t the only stars of the show; their cruises frequently encounter charismatic dolphins, massive sea turtles, and resident and migratory seabirds.
