The experience of a lifetime
One of the most magnificent encounters we can have on this planet is during the humpback whale migration. Excitement and anticipation fill the air while we search along the horizon for the first blow or splash from these gentle giants. After years of observing these animals, we can feel we can safely say they sense us near them, as it seems they often curiously swim up to see our excitement.
This is an educational and informative tour that will give you an immersive experience that is all left completely up to nature. We ask all our customers to acknowledge this is an organic experience and in no way do we control the animals or their behaviours. We give all our whale watching tours a 100% money back guarantee on whale sightings, so if there are no whales at all that day you will have the chance to go again.
What to bring
In terms of clothing, we have always found that it’s best to dress in layers. The Sunshine Coast winter is usually very mild, with the highs being around 21° C / 68° F. It’s also important to note that temperatures can feel very different depending on whether you are in the sun or the shade. Please make sure you are staying sun safe by taking along a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses.
Please make sure you take along non-slip, comfortable footwear. Please avoid wearing heels for this tour as you will be on the open ocean where the vessel will not be completely still.
If you have personal medications please ensure you take these along. Feel free to ask our staff if you have any questions at all.
You are welcome to take along your own camera. Make sure your battery is charged and you have enough space on a memory card. If a camera is not available to you or if you do not end up getting any photos, we have a photographer in our crew who will be taking photos. These will be sold on board as either prints or digital format.
