Great for kids
Miranda Fullerton 3 months ago

Great for kids, a whole family day out. Comfy boat, with plenty of viewing space. Fun and informative commentary, with generous time to spot and view whales. Staff were excellent, friendly and polite. Amazing experience would absolutely go on again.

It was such an amazing experience
Candice Whaitiri 4 months ago

It was such an amazing experience. Getting up close to such magical giant creatures. We don’t really realise that they love so close to us. I also learnt the only food whales eat is krill and we shouldn’t buy products containing krill (some vitamins) because we are only going to make them stave.

My little one was so excited about to see whales we are very lucky to see a lot of whales
Brian Yang 1 year ago

My little one was so excited about to see whales we are very lucky to see a lot of whales. Some are quite close. The only thing be careful of seasickness when a big wave in open sea area. Crews offer the tablets before boat seal to open sea as it takes 20mins to take effect. If you think you will be sick better take and not too confident of yourself as we saw many people regretted they didn’t take it. It is a very good experience.

These guys are the real deal
Matt ODonnell 1 year ago

These guys are the real deal. The friendly crew on board, knowledgable and make sure you don't miss out on anything. Very close encounters with the whales and will certainly be going again in the future. Well worth the price of the experience and is a must-do whilst on the Gold Coast.

Our whale watching cruise was spectacular
Victoria Zhou 1 year ago

Our whale watching cruise was spectacular. The boat had great viewing options and we were lucky enough to see several spectacular whales and a beautiful pod of dolphins. For the most part, the commentary was easy to hear. The crew were attentive and available, we had an absolutely terrific time on board.

Amazing experience for the family as we attended this cruises much least expedition
Jahir Hussain 1 year ago

Amazing experience for the family as we attended this cruises much least expedition. Once we entered into the open sea, we are lucky to spot whales and a couple of dolphins who joined the whales. Keeping everyone on the cruise entertained through the several hours we spelt whale watching. Fantastic. Cruise for the family especially for the kids to witness this together. Strongly Recommend.

The open ocean can be quite choppy, so if you suffer from sea sickness make sure you head to the pharmacy before boarding to purchase some sea sickness tablets or pressure bands.
