Big Blue Charters - Tour

Big Blue Charters is a Gold Coast-based charter yacht built on a passion for activities and the ocean. Specialising in creating intimate and unforgettable experiences around the waters of Australia's Gold Coast. From cruising the Gold Coast Broadwater at sunset on board 65ft Platinum to intimate whale watching encounters, Big Blue Charters offers exceptional charter experiences.

Gold Coast Private Whale Watching


Whale watching on the Gold Coast is unique due to its geographical location in the Humpback Whales’ migratory patterns. Join Big Blue Charters for a private small group (up to 12) charter, and there's no need to fight for a position when you are always in the right spot with the best view. Big Blue 1 is a highly specialised, maneuverable and sturdy centre console RIB vessel to give the most intimate viewing experience to customers. Departing from Marina Mirage in Main Beach, step aboard your private whale watching tour at 9 am to depart out the seaway in search of these majestic giants of the sea. With a private tour (your group only) you will have many opportunities to capture the perfect photo of your experience. The friendly and knowledgeable Captain will bring you in close for the most intimate experience viewing these huge Humpback Whales. Offering unique insights and information on Humpback Whales and their behaviours, you will leave with a greater understanding and appreciation for these special marine mammals. Big Blue Charters Private Whale Watching Tours operate from June to late October, during the Humpback Whales migration. They recommend that you dress warmly. Life jackets are provided.
