Enjoy a magical experience among the gentle giants of the ocean with the marine experts Sea World Whale Watch and travel in luxury aboard the Gold Coast’s premier whale watching vessel, Spirit of Migaloo.
This once in a lifetime opportunity gives you the chance to get up close to one of the largest marine mammals on Earth. Their sheer size, speed and elegance will captivate you.
You will also have the chance to see the famous, and elusive, white whale Migaloo as he migrates north past the Gold Coast on his way to the Great Barrier Reef and then south again as he heads back to the Antarctic.
Spirit of Migaloo offers first class seating, air conditioned interiors and a huge forward viewing area with tiered seating, four levels of amazing viewing platforms and walk-around decks that ensure uninterrupted views of the majestic whales and provide amazing photo opportunities from sea level to sundeck.
Throughout your tour, our expert marine mammal guides use three big screens featuring 3D animation to reveal the secrets of the whales and their epic migration journey. Male humpbacks are famed for their complex and ever-changing songs, believed to play a role in attracting mates. If conditions are suitable, our underwater microphone will allow you to listen in on this incredible mating ritual.
