Join Sea World Whale Watch for a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experience and see the majestic humpback whales in their natural habitat.

Sea World Whale Watch is the Gold Coast’s Closest Operator to the Humpback Highway; spend less time in transit and more time with the whales! Departing from the Sea World Cruise Terminal in Main Beach, enjoy iconic views of the Gold Coast while cruising on the luxurious Spirit of Migaloo II vessel.

The cruises run up to six times a day from late May until early November, taking you to the Humpback Highway, where 40,000 whales pass close to Gold Coast shores on their annual migration.

Observe the whales launching into the air, slapping their tails, and diving deep into the ocean. During close encounters, hear the iconic whale song through advanced underwater microphones.

Expert commentary is provided as you witness these gentle giants showcase their acrobatic skills, while also looking for dolphins, turtles, and seabirds.

Before your cruise, indulge in eating at the waterfront deck cafe and visit the gift shop at the stunning terminal.

Sea World Whale Watch offers a 100% Whale Sighting Guarantee, providing a free return cruise if no whales are spotted so you can be confident you will encounter these majestic creatures. Book now for an unforgettable whale-watching experience!
