We booked our tickets online before we left home, and did a combo deal that included entry to SeaWorld. It cost $110 per person, and when you consider it costs around $80 per person for SeaWorld, it was a bargain. The whale sightseeing starts with a photo of guests in front of the boat. If you choose to purchase your... More

We went whale watching with 3 kids, youngest being 8. As they took a photo of each family in front of the vessel before they started sailing. we had to stand for a while in the queue under the sun, before boarding. Perhaps an area of improvement would be for someone to coordinate the movement of the queue, such that... More

This is an expensive trip, but it is a high quality experience. The staff were professional and the whole event was very efficiently run. You are guaranteed your money back if no whales are spotted. The chances of getting your money back are ZERO, as he whales are plentiful! Biggest tip: Choose a calm day to improve the chances of... More

Wow, just wow! Everything about this experience is amazing. The Gold Coast skyline view from the ocean is worth it even before you see the whales. The staff know their stuff when it comes to the finer details about these animals and honestly I'd never imagined exactly how big humpback whales actually were until I saw them up close. Do... More

It's amazing to witness this natural scenery. The whales gave us a very sweet & warm welcome 😆 they jumped off the sea for a several times. We are really lucky! The sea was a bit rough but the captain managed to reduce the sickness (I guess? Cuz I didn't feel so bad) and the host is very professional, enlightening... More

The boat was top notch (and smooth) and whale friendly, crew were all very friendly and informative and helpful, especially to those feeling unwell. We only really saw a mother and calf whale and they didn't do any breaching etc, but just to see them at all was the highlight of my holiday - and they got quite close to... More

Truly amazing!!!!!!! We booked SeaWorld combo ticket. Staff were friendly. We were lucky to see mother and her calf along with two escorts. The calf kept 'jumping' out of the water we would have seen him at least 10 times. Tail slapping on the water. Was fairly close too. Easy parking - just park in SeaWorld parking 🐳🐳🐳
