Spend an exciting two and half hours scouting for humpback whales during this personalised whale watching cruise.
Join an expert guide on board a modern boat as you search for humpback whales along the famous Queensland coastline.
Participants can look forward to closer and longer encounters as humpback whales do not feel intimated by the smaller vessel.
With a maximum of 8 guests on the vessel you are ensured the ultimate personalised whale watching experience!
The outer tubes of the semi inflatable vessel are only 50cm above the water surface which allows participants to submerge their water proof cameras for some great underwater shots.
Whilst no vessel is allowed to approach whales closer than 100m, our experience shows that the whales are usually approaching us whilst our engines are turned off and the vessel drifts through the water. For this very reason, our vessel is frequently chartered by research groups to conduct field surveys and sampling.
This boat trip gives you the unique opportunity to see some of Australia's most beautiful humpback whales, along with the stunning scenery of the Gold Coast's coastline.
Meeting Location: Meet us at Runaway Bay Marina, 15 minutes prior to departure
Broad Beach and Surfers Paradise pickups by arrangement - discuss with the operator after booking - pick up options (varying from $5-$10 per person each way)
All prices are shown in AUD ($)
Danke!! Thanks Rebekka. It was a pleasure to have you on the boat.
