Spirit of Gold Coast Whale Watching Tours

With whale watching season upon us, one of the best ways to see these majestic 40 tonne creatures of the sea as they frolic their way along the coastline is with Spirit of Gold Coast whale watching tours.  

Bring the family for a spectacular two and a half hour tour, departing from Mariner's Cove Marina in Main Beach. This 24 metre power catamaran is purpose-built for whale watching, ensuring everyone on board has an amazing view of the ocean.

Spirit of Gold Coast Whale Watching

Shortly after departure from the marina you will be up close to the humpback whales as they mesmerise with their antics and acrobatic displays, with the stunning vista of the Gold Coast skyline in the background. And best of all, they are in their natural environment, wild and free!

As well as breaching, these creatures have other entertaining moves like muggings, spy-hopping and tail slaps to watch out for. And if you're lucky you might see them trumpeting, which is an experience you'll never forget! Spirit also has a marine biologist on board who is passionate about and focused on the majestic humpback whales, sharing their knowledge with kids and families.

Whilst the main focus is on whale watching, turtles, dolphins and other marine life can be seen in these waters too. And when not being captivated by the animal life, you can take in the splendid views of the beautiful Broadwater and South Stradbroke Island from the top deck of the catamaran.

With cruises departing daily at 9.30am (boarding at 9am), you'll be back in time for lunch at one of Marina Mirage's many great eateries and for the chance to explore the unique shops and boutiques of the waterfront precinct.

Good to know - Spirit is really focused on education, ensuring everyone on board understands more about marine life, recycling and how to be guardians of the ocean.

Need to know - Morning tea is included with the whale watching experience and is served on arrival. There is also a fully licensed bar on board.
