Tangalooma Whale Watch Cruises

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

The humpback whale is known for their long migration journeys each winter, putting on a magnificent display of breaching, tail slapping and spy hopping as they make their way to warmer waters. South-East Queensland is one of the best places to view these amazing creatures, with up to 33,000 whales expected to journey past Moreton Island this winter. This is definitely something you don’t want to miss!

Tangalooma operates daily whale watching cruises from June through to the middle of October with departures available from Brisbane and Tangalooma. Board the largest dedicated whale watching vessel in Australia and see these majestic humpback whales in their natural environment as part of an awe-inspiring day tour.

The cruise includes a light lunch onboard as well an extensive educational commentary by an Eco Ranger from Tangalooma’s Eco Centre.
