Exciting two hour whale watching cruise aboard "Sensational", a fast, high powered, purpose built RIB. Featuring a maximum capacity of 20 passengers for a more personalised and intimate experience! Less time travelling to the whales equals more time watching them!
The vessel ‘Sensational’ was built by Woody Marine Fabrication in 2015 and she is a fast, comfortable and economical RIB. Licensed to carry 20 passengers plus crew ensuring you a more personalised and intimate experience with the whales. With real 360 degree water level viewing, this vessel allows you to get up close and personal with the whales. She is powered by twin 350hp Yamaha outboards which are the most fuel efficient and low emission engines of their kind available. With this power she can get you out to the whales fast. Comfortable shock reducing seating is available for all passengers and ensures a comfortable ride even at speed. When you are with the whales you can stand up and move about the boat enabling some great photo opportunities. She also has an onboard waste treatment system with toilet and sink facilities. Each year thousands of Humpback Whales migrate along the eastern side of Australia. They migrate from their summer feeding grounds in Antarctica to their breeding grounds in Queensland. The skippers are both very experienced and have a deep love and knowledge of whales. They enjoy sharing their passion for whales and are always happy to answer any questions you may have. With a little help from the land based spotters you will be with the whales in no time at all. The majority of the whales migrating past are Humpback whales but you may also have the chance to see other whales like Southern Rights, Minkes, Bryde’s, Blue and Orcas and marine life like dolphins, sea turtles, Australian Fur Seals, a bounty of sea birds and more from the boat. Whilst all efforts will be made to ensure that your whale experience is an enjoyable one it is important to remember that whales are wild animals.
