They understand their obligation to protect what is given to us for future generations. They aim to raise awareness around research programs that study some most fascinating marine life including humpback whales, sharks and manta rays.

Gold Coast Whale Watch and Marine Research Adventure (May to October)


This three to four hour adventure is an absolute personalised experience on a small vessel with a maximum of eight participants. The spectators can look forward to closer and longer encounters as humpback whales do not feel intimated by a smaller vessel. The outer tubes of their semi inflatable vessel are only 50 centimetres above the water surface which even allows to submerge your water proof camera on passing whales for some great underwater shots. Whilst no vessel is allowed to approach whales closer than 100 metres, their experience shows that the whales are usually approaching them whilst their engines are turned off and the vessel drifts through the water. For this very reason, their vessel is frequently chartered by research groups to conduct field surveys and sampling. Highlights include: guaranteed sightings, small group with maximum of eight participants, hotel transfers available, closer encounters possible, knowledgeable staff, participate in research activities (optional), educational components, waterproof jackets provided and snacks and hot drinks are provided. The tour departs twice daily on most days (see calendar on their website). There are great savings of 30 per cent for group bookings.
