Ready Yourself For An Intimate Encounter With One Of The Most Remarkable Creatures Of The Deep.
Set sail from Surfers Paradise for a dynamic up-close encounter that will stay with you for a lifetime. Witness one of the animal kingdom’s most breathtaking spectacles 35,000 migrating humpback whales passing close to Gold Coast shores twice each year travelling along an ancient route known as the Humpback Highway. Marvel at their dramatic aerial displays. See mothers tenderly care for calves. Feel dwarfed by their size as they curiously approach the vessel. Keep your camera at the ready because whales aren’t the only stars of the show – our tours routinely encounter charismatic dolphins, enormous green sea turtles and resident and migratory seabirds. A locally owned and family operated business, Whales in Paradise is the ultimate boutique marine wildlife experience.
The Whales migrate up the Eastern Seaboard of Australia each year to mate and play in the warm waters off the Great Barrier Reef. Many Whales spectators can see the breaching Whales and the Whale blows directly off the coast line while walking the white sandy beaches or swimming in the crystal clears ocean. Some excellent vantage points for seeing Whales in their wild environment is in Byron Bay the most easterly point of Australia, Coolangatta and Tweed Heads, The Spit in Northern Gold Coast, Stradbroke Island and Moreton Island.
