MAGICAL WHALE WATCHING EXPERIENCES 

 

PRIVATE EXCLUSIVE WHALE WATCHING CHARTER

Sunrise or 8AM START
($890 for up to 6 guests)

Our exclusive whale cruises take you out for 4 hours, giving us plenty of time for you to be up close and personal with the Humpbacks. We also often see turtles and dolphins on our whale watching trips. Bring your camera, there will be many photo and video opportunities.

Our whale watching trips are private and exclusive, meaning that it will be only your group on the yacht. We can take up to 6 guests on each trip, making it very special for your whale watching experience. Definitely a bucket list moment.

In June each year, the Humpback whales travel north to have their calves. We are incredibly lucky to have the Gold Coast as part of their highway. Once they have their calves, they travel back past the Gold Coast with their calves in tow.  We can often see the mothers and their calves frolicking in our waterways off the Gold Coast between July and October. The return trip is a much slower one which is why we time our cruises to line up with their return.

Did you know that whales live for 45-50 years and the females are around 15m long and males a little smaller at 14m. They weigh up to 40 tonnes according to LiveScience.com.

Often when we are whale watching, we hear the whales before we see them. They are very loud.

Our trips take you out of the seaway and out to the “whale highway” which is approximately 5 nautical miles from the mainland. At times the whales are much closer to our shores, we will take you to where the whales are on that day. It is certainly trial and error in locating the whales, however our skipper Grant hasn’t failed us yet.On our whale cruises, you will be with us for 4 hours, giving us plenty of time for you to be up close and personal with the Humpbacks. We also often see turtles and dolphins on our whale watching trips. Bring your camera, there will be many photo and video opportunities.

During the trip, you will also enjoy our snack plate of croissants and fruit and beverages, either coffee/tea/hot chocolate or 2 glasses of sparking wine, beer or sparkling water.
