“Whale watching with Seaworld”

Seaworld Cruise Day Tours
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We had a great time whale watching on the SeaWorld cruise, it's approximately 2 hours in total time with a spectacular view of the Surfers Paradise. The crew were very well informed and the boat was excellent allowing all passengers a great view of the whales. We were very fortunate and saw 2 pods, both of which breached and put on quite a show. We went on the early cruise and then took the opportunity of the discounted ticket into the SeaWorld Park, this was far better than expected. We were able to see all the attractions we wanted even though we didn't enter until 1.00.

Our family of four and my Mother-In-Law went out to Seaworld for the day after purchasing a Superpark Gold Pass. We were really pleased that on a Sunday, it was relatively easy finding a car park, minimal line-up and fantastic customer service.
Although the food prices were crazy high, we were smart enough to eat at one of the nearby restaurants for an early lunch before hand. We found all the displays really well put together, the boys enjoyed the rides very much.
We did wait a long time for the log ride due to problems with it, but we endured the line up only to be told after 40 minutes that they were sorry for the inconvenience, a bit too long to find out they were having problems.
The Resort pool area also was an additional price so we drew the line at paying another fee.
The dolphin show at 3:30pm was brilliant. The main host was very knowledgable and was very charismatic. The trainers and dolphins were jawdropping and breathtaking. A wonderful contribution to the park!
Will be going back again and again, but as we did this time, we will be eating before entering the park, those food prices are rude!!!!!!

My husband and I were on the 10:00am cruise which departed on time. We were seated at the very top of the vessel and did not feel the effects of seasickness at all. Seats were very comfortable and had stunning 360 degree views. We saw multiple pods of humpback whales, including a courting male and female. We spent at least 40 minutes following a pod of two whales that continued to breach the entire time, and had another pod at the rear of the vessel. Also saw dolphins too. A truly memorable experience. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the young lady who commentated was well spoken and enunciated well.
Highly recommended and money well spent.
Tip - purchase tickets directly via seaworld to obtain combo, which for an extra $10, allows entry into Seaworld.

Thanks to Seaworld cruises we had an excellent whale watching trip. First and foremost the crusie ship was excellent with no seasickenss. The service, commentary was topclass. Within 1 hour we were fortunate to see mother and calf humpback whales. They preferred to be left alone and so the ship left them aside and we looked for more whales. Within 15-20 minutes we spotted two adult humpback whales. Boy oh boy they did show off for us for almost 30-40 minutes circulating around the boat and showing off. Such a joy to see God's Gift of this wonderful creature enjoying in their natural habitat. Thanks Guys at Seaworld you rock.. Keep up the quality you provide for whale watching public.

We followed a humpback whale and also saw a pod of dolphins. It was a great experience. The ocean was very pretty and it was fun watching for the whale to pop up again. It felt like we were part of nature, following a wild animal in its natural habitat going about its business.
We got a combo-pass with Sea World which was good value and we went to Sea World for the afternoon after the cruise.
