Just minutes after crossing over the bar into open water we were greated by our first sighting of whales. We were so excited but the whales were intent on their journey. This just set a challenge for the crew who were determined we would see more than just a couple of tail slaps and arching backs. It was clear that the crew wanted us to have the full experience of seeing these magnificent beasts in all their glory. We saw 3 or 4 pods of whales that morning with about 8 whales in total but the best was left to last with a solo whale way in the distance putting on a magnificent display. Regardless of the fact we should have been heading back to base the crew were determined to cap off our morning with a truly spectacular display. This lone whale did not disappoint, in 10 minutes he breached 4 times, rolled on his back and slapped the water with his huge pectral fin. What a way to end the day, thanks Spirit of Gold Coast crew for a wonderful day.

Lovely fine day, not too big a swell. Initially, the whales were elusive but we finally came across mother & calf. One breeched not far away from the boat. Absolutely magnificent, they were quite ready to allow plenty of viewing opportunities. We saw a total of 5 whales and they were not at all bothered by us. An absolutely memorable experience which was well worth the money. The crew were also fantastic!

This was my 4th time whale watching tour with Spirit of the Gold Coast. We live local and this was the first time I have taken my grandchildren. The staff are exceptional! We had a 3 year old and a 9 month old baby with us and our 3 yr old was given colouring pencils and pictures of whales, the baby fell asleep and a staff member gave us a warm snuggly blanket, each time we had to go up or down steps a staff member helped us with the 3 yr old. We saw whales and dolphins. I will be back again next year with friends and family and this is the only whale watching tour I would go on. Why go anywhere else!
