What you need to know

Brace yourself for a close encounter with Humpback Whales on this 2.5 hour Gold Coast whale watching cruise exclusively available for a maximum of 8 guests. Travelling in a semi-inflatable vessel, spectators can get closer to the whales than ever before and even submerge underwater cameras in the water for those unforgettable underwater shots. Watch in awe as these majestic ocean creatures play in the waters off the Gold Coast as they migrate along Australia's coastline every year.

Passengers can also choose to participate in marine research activities filling in survey data and using a hydrophone to listen to live whale song or sit and watch the incredible wildlife experience unfold in front of your eyes. Whale watching cruises will depart from Runaway Bay twice daily at 9.30am and 12.30pm from June to September.
