Sea World Whale Watch

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Join Sea World Whale Watch for a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experience and see the majestic humpback whales in their natural habitat.

Sea World Whale Watch is the Gold Coast’s Closest Operator to the Humpback Highway; spend less time in transit and more time with the whales! Departing from the Sea World Cruise Terminal in Main Beach, enjoy iconic views of the Gold Coast while cruising on the luxurious Spirit of Migaloo II vessel.

The cruises run up to six times a day from late May until early November, taking you to the Humpback Highway, where 40,000 whales pass close to Gold Coast shores on their annual migration.

Observe the whales launching into the air, slapping their tails, and diving deep into the ocean. During close encounters, hear the iconic whale song through advanced underwater microphones.

Expert commentary is provided as you witness these gentle giants showcase their acrobatic skills, while also looking for dolphins, turtles, and seabirds.

Before your cruise, indulge in eating at the waterfront deck cafe and visit the gift shop at the stunning terminal.

Sea World Whale Watch offers a 100% Whale Sighting Guarantee, providing a free return cruise if no whales are spotted so you can be confident you will encounter these majestic creatures. Book now for an unforgettable whale-watching experience!


From $79 to $119

Reaching an ancient underwater corridor known as the Humpback Highway in just 20 minutes, enjoy a breathtaking vantage point of 35,000 migrating whales. Marvel at their spectacular and acrobatic aerial displays. See mother whales tenderly care for calves. Feel dwarfed by the size of gentle giants as they curiously approach the vessel. Keep your camera at the ready because whales aren’t the only stars of the show – the cruises routinely encounter charismatic dolphins, enormous sea turtles and resident and migratory seabirds.

Season operates between late May to early November.
