Discover Whales in Paradise and Go Whale Watching in Surfers Paradise
Each year, thousands of incredible humpback whales migrate from Antarctica to the tepid waters of the Pacific to breed. This migration period takes place between June and November and during this time, there’s no where better than the Gold Coast to spot these magnificent playful creatures close up. For a holiday memory you’ll treasure forever, take a Whales in Paradise half day whale watching tour from Surfers Paradise jetty close to our Surfers Paradise beachfront accommodation.
Enjoy a leisurely cruise down the scenic Nerang River past beautiful South Stradbroke Island to the famous Whale Highway. The tours take place on the Mahi Mahi, a modern, 15 metre catamaran that was specifically designed for whale watching. There are three viewing platforms around the boat, so you are sure of a great view, no matter where the whales are playing! Watch as they leap gracefully out of the ocean just metres in front of you, and feel the almighty splash as their huge bodies fall back into the water. It’s not just about the whales – there are chances to spot bottlenose dolphins, tropical fish, giant turtles, and even killer whales on your tour, so keep your eyes peeled!
Whales in Paradise tours depart twice a day during the whale watching season. To find out more please visit: http://www.whalesinparadise.com.au/
