Wake Up with the Whales Cruise + Breakfast

Rise and shine with a delicious barbecue breakfast and watch humpback whales play in the picture-perfect morning light.

Starting from 6:00 AM, cosy up with a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee or tea (or juice for the kids) and satisfy your tastebuds with your choice of mouth-watering bacon and egg or flavoursome mushroom and spinach burger. Complement with seasonal tropical fruits, muffins and yoghurts, and you’ll be ready to board our flagship vessel Spirit of Migaloo and journey to the famed Humpback Highway. Departing at 6:30 AM, within 20 minutes, you will be helping our expert crew spot whales against the unique backdrop of the sun rising over the Gold Coast bay horizon. Witness these gentle giants up close as they showcase their size, behaviours and execute flawless acrobatic skills. Keep your camera ready for frequently seen charismatic dolphins, ancient sea turtles and resident and migratory seabirds. Learn about the whales from our passionate naturalist guides, listen to the whales sing through underwater microphones and develop a deeper connection to the region and its wildlife. After saying a regretful goodbye to the whales, we return to the terminal at 8:30 AM for you to begin your day.
