    Nothing but AMAZING. The staff were brilliant and mixed with the guests. The boat was great, with complementary tea and coffee. And the WHALES. The most mind blowing, amazing experience ever. Will be back. Best whale watching cruise I have done!

    Comfortable vessel with very friendly staff. Grown from a small family business, they look after all your needs. Plenty of room to see the whales on board, no need to worry about 'getting the best spot'. The crew also have a wealth of knowledge and a true respect for the ocean and all things under the sea.

    Spent the entire boat ride between 3 families of whales, being followed by a huge pod of dolphins. The crew were lovely and very knowledgeable, they respect the whales space and allow them to gain trust and curiosity. This way the whales come to play with the boat rather than being scared away. An amazing trip!

    It was great experience. I went with my husband and husband’s family. I haven’t seen whale so closely in my life. The guide explained well about the whale. They did their best to show the best scene. I am so appreciated. I will definitely bring my friends and my parents.

    • 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.
