Awesome experience. Captain Kerry and her crew were knowledgeable, informative and fun. We would definitely recommend this trip.

Definitely recommend this trip. We didn't expect to see as many whales and feel special to see a mega pod... so special! Expectations were totally exceeded and the lunch was tasty and fresh. The captain and staff were knowledgeable and helpful... nothing was too hard for them A+

It was a great day out whilst seeing a lot of whales.

We had a great day out seeing the whales yesterday. The only downside would be, that it’s not very infant-friendly... even though it was free for an infant, you couldn’t bring a pram or stroller and there were no options for food. You couldn’t even purchase another lunch pack.

A beautiful trip on Moreton Bay - thoroughly recommended!

This is our 4th trip with Brisbane Whale Watching. We love the boat and the crew is always great. Even though the seas were a bit rough this time, we still managed to find several humpbacks. The view along Moreton Island is always interesting and the commentary is well done.
