  • Overview
    This 3h Gold Coast whale adventure is unlike any other cruise. At 15+ metres and 30+ tonnes, humpback whales are so much bigger than anything else you’ve swum with and they have undeniable personalities and moods. Humpback Whales have an incredible sense for their surroundings and never touch a person or vessel hence they are nicknamed ‘gentle giants’. 

    On this whale tour, you are presented with the unique opportunity of humpbacks choosing to swim with you. Everything we do during this experience is at the whales discretion and what ever happens simply happens. You may also experience close encounters with a number of marine animals including dolphins!

    We had a fabulous time on the whale watching trip. Everyone was so knowledgeable and helpful. We saw so many whales, up closer than I thought we ever would. We didn’t go swimming but everyone who did seemed to have a marvellous time. I would recommend this tour as the small groups make it so much more intimate and they really cared about the whole experience for everyone. We saw a number of the bigger cruise boats overloaded with passengers and I’d have to say I’m so glad we did this trip.

    My son did his PADI open water course, Dave the Dive Instructor was really patient, he really ensured my boy understood and was aware of all requirements. Dave a massive thank you, LJ was full of compliments and praise for yourself and the team see you soon for some more diving.

    I booked with another firm originally but I changed to this one, paying a little more for them because each time I rang with a question (4 different times!), my call was answered by the owner of the business. My teenage kids did the scuba dive, both first timers. Both had a fabulous experience and saw plenty of marine-life including a small stingray! Highly recommended.

    Really good today guys, thank you for taking care of Phil (aka Squirrel), a dedicated kite surfer and sailor. He is vision impaired and suffers from aspergers syndrome and is required to be permanently helmeted on water, he really enjoyed his discovery dive dive time here. His first time underwater at Manly Aquarium some 8 years ago. He will be back on the Gold Coast late July for round 2, after engineering a custom solution to fit his mask and helmet safely underwater. Thank You

    We hired kayaks and the process was quick and easy. We were provided with life jackets and given clear instructions. We kayaked along the opposite side from Sea World and were very delighted when we spotted a dolphin only 20mtrs away from us. It was affordable and very fun. Highly recommend.
