Whale Watching Gold Coast

Whale Watching Gold Coast

As the chill sets in Antarctica, we prepare to be enthralled by the annual migration of our Antarctic cousins, the Majestic Humpback Whale. Each year, some 30,000 humpbacks make an epic 10,000 km return journey between Antarctica and Australia.
With over 25 years of whale watching experience, we are committed to offering you the best customer service and memories to last a lifetime.

This is your opportunity to marvel at the majestic Humpback Whales in their natural environment with the stunning Gold Coast skyline glistening in the background. Take home unique memories that only Mother Nature can provide. You’ll have a whale of a time on the Gold Coast as you learn about mating and migration, baleen and blowholes, flukes and fins. We have the most exciting Whale Watching on the Gold Coast!

The Journey of a lifetime!

Within minutes of departure you’ll see these majestic creatures as they pass along the Gold Coast Humpback Highway on their annual migration along the east coast of Australia. This amazing journey is a truly fascinating experience, as right before your very eyes these 40-tonne Humpback Whales breach, wave their pectoral fins and slap their tails.
Spirit crew are passionate about the conservation of these gentle giants, promoting awareness and education of Humpback Whales, marine wildlife and their natural environment.
Your journey will be guided by full commentary from our Marine Biologists, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff are ready to answer any questions that you may have. With a 100% Whale Guarantee, you can cruise in comfort knowing that you will see the Humpback Whales or you will receive a free return cruise.
