Every Whale Watching Tour by Sea World Cruises on the Gold Coast is a unique experience.

Humpback Whales are the stars of the show although our tours often encounter Bottlenose Dolphins, Common Dolphins, sharks, turtles and albatross.

Within 20 minutes of departure you will be assisting our expert crew to find Humpback Whales by scanning the horizon for the famous “blow”. At this point in the tour there is always great anticipation which quickly turns to excitement when a distant splash or a great exhalation of breath confirms we have found a whale.
