Experience the unforgettable thrill of seeing whales up close, with a cruise to ‘Humpback Highway’ on the Gold Coast.
From June to early November each year, whale watching cruises depart from Surfers Paradise, taking participants on an incredible journey to see the world’s largest animals in their own environment.
Aboard a purpose built vessel you’ll have great views from the viewing platforms at sea level to the sundeck, with the Gold Coast skyline making a perfect backdrop.
