Departing from Sea World on the Gold Coast, this is one of Australia’s premier whale watching experiences.

During the 2.5 hour cruise learn more about these fascinating marine creatures and listen to unique whale songs live with an underwater microphone on board. The Gold Coast whale watching season runs from early June to November and whale watching cruises will depart daily from the Sea World Cruise Terminal at 7:30 AM, 10:00 AM, 12:30 PM and 3:00 PM.
