Designed for South East Queensland waterways

Our fleet of vessels were designed and built here in South-East Queensland based on a thorough understanding of sea conditions typical of the region, allowing for smoother sailing conditions and passenger comfort. 

Complete with wide open decks, plenty of rail side positioning and 360-degree unobstructed views, our vessels allow you to  make the most of your tour – whether it be whale watching to calm water cruising. 

The safety and protection of marine wildlife is extremely important to us at Sea World Cruises. Therefore, all vessels are thoughtfully customised with mini keels and low emission engines to protect our local wildlife and habitats. We are also proudly certified by EcoTourism Australia for our Advanced EcoTourism Operation.
