Gold Coast Whale Watching

Whale Watch Cruises from Surfers Paradise

Did you know that the first Humpback Whales start passing the Gold Coast from mid to late May? Don’t let this once in a lifetime experience slip by and make sure you get aboard a Gold Coast Whale Watching cruise.

The humpback whale season usually runs from June to end of October each year. There are different phases in the season where you will see different aspects of the whales on their journey past our coast. The whales migrate from Antarctic waters up the east coast of Australia to warmer water for breeding and giving birth.

Embark on an unforgettable whale watching cruise past homes of the rich and famous to the deep blue waters of the majestic “Humpback Highway”. This is the ONLY whale watch company departing from Surfers Paradise and also includes a bonus Gold Coast Canal Cruise.

The cruises depart up to five times a day, seven days a week during the whale season right from the centre of Surfers Paradise.
