See wild humpback whales in their habitat. One of the best whale watching tours in Queensland, this cruise will get you up close to some of the most majestic creatures of the sea. Owner and skipper Peter Lynch brings his years of experience and knowledge to your tour and provides expert commentary.
It's an early start to the day with a courtesy bus ride to the Marina. Once you're there you'll climb aboard the modern, eco friendly boat with your small group; ready for your whale watching adventure! Take in the gorgeous views of calm, azure waters and tropical beaches while your crew takes you out to the whale's playground. You'll enjoy a morning tea of baked goods and antipasto.
Once you get to the special spot, you'll go out on the decks and watch for the whales. You may see the majestic humpbacks displaying playful behaviour such as tail-slapping, breaching, pectoral slapping or spy-hopping. Ensure you have your camera ready because you'll want to snap some photos of these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat. A delicious lunch will be served in the middle of the day where you can eat while watching the whales play in the ocean. You will also get a beverage of your choice; wine, beer or soft drink.
If the conditions are right you'll be able to go out onto a water platform to get closer to the whales and experience the majesty of these gentle giants up close. Throughout the cruise you'll hear commentary from the knowledgeable skipper, who has more than 28 years of experience dealing with marine mammals. Around 2:30 pm it's time to say goodbye to the whales and head back to shore. On the way back, you'll enjoy afternoon tea and some relaxation time on the decks. When you arrive back on the docks, you'll be able to board the courtesy bus and be driven back to your accommodation.
Alcohol will only be served to passengers over the age of 18 years.
The cruise runs with a minimum of 4 and maximum of 24 passengers.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
