    Absolutely fantastic day out rain or shine. We had a beautiful sunny day and only managed to see a whale fin but we were so lucky to get a free return trip. The only day available was a wet and rainy overcast day which actually turned out to be the best day for whale watching. We got to see so many active whales, many in pods of 3. Even got to see a whale and her baby calf. Can’t recommend it enough for a wet day activity. Crew on board were amazing and made you feel so welcome.

    The crew is awesome and Mel is a total sweetheart , she is kind and friendly and she definitely synonymous with the name , Superstar Mel is the true sporting spirit of Spirit of Gold Coast Cruise. We did get to see multiple whales and few dolphins. They are the best among the best in all the Gold Coast whale watching cruises. The complete crew is fabulous.

    What a fantastic experience! From the moment I made the booking with the very friendly office team to the boat crew, it was amazing. The guarantee of seeing whales is great value for money and proves that you will get to experience seeing the whales. We had a great day, with the dolphins making the end of the trip a delight.

    Spectacular sightseeing and whale watching with the Gold Coast skyline as a backdrop. Highly recommend to all. Lucky enough to see multiple whales on our trip including a Humpback Mum & her calf plus their escort. And then more on our way back in.

    Great experience and it’s definitely worth what you paid for. Captain Richie is very knowledgeable and know exactly where to go and inform all Passengers on board on the location of the whales. Get to see couple of whales and a school of dolphins too. Pls visit their website for booking and trust me it’s much better then the rest.

    • If it is overcast or lightly raining we still venture out to see the whales; we tend to find the whales still active. We have plenty of under covered areas (including indoors) so you can stay warm without missing out on seeing the whales if you wish.
    • We highly recommend enclosed flat comfortable shoes as well as a jacket or jumper as it can tend to get a little chilly in the sea breeze. And remember to bring your camera to take pictures of the beautiful gentle giants of the sea. 
    • In you don't see whlae on your trip,then we will provide you with another voucher to come back FREE of Charge another day that is convenient for you.
    • Spirit of Gold Coast is fully licensed with a bar providing a range of beer, wine and mixers for sale.

    WHALE GUARANTEE:

    • As our tours are conducted in the ocean we do not control these beautiful creatures; hence no two cruises are the same. We believe this is a part of the attraction of experiencing the whales on their migration path.
    • Due to the increase of Humpback whale population during the past few years, Our Guarantee is that if Whales are not sighted on the day of the cruise we will provide vouchers for the passengers aboard to return FREE of charge on another day.

    What to Bring:

    • Please bring beach attire and remember to wear sunscreen and bring a hat and/or sunglasses!
    • Life is bright, you gotta have shades!
    • You may bring a camera, mobile phone, etc. However, since you may be splashed with ocean spray, please bring these items at your own risk.
    • No refunds will be provided for change of mind or unforeseen circumstances.
    • In the event you are unable to attend your scheduled cruise for any reason, we will help you to reschedule your cruise to an alternate day (subject to availability).
    • In the event you are unable to reschedule your cruise to the current Whale Watching season, you are permitted to transfer your cruise into the name of a family member or friend.
    • All decisions regarding cancelled cruises will be made by the Operations Manager and are considered final.
    • The only instance a refund will be provided is if Spirit of Gold Coast has made the decision to cancel your cruise.
  • Your voucher(s) and booking information will be included in the confirmation email you will receive shortly after purchasing the experience on Amazed.com.
