Full details

Whales in Paradise will provide you with the most intimate and memorable encounter with Humpback Whales on the Gold Coast. As the first Whale Watching Operator on the Gold Coast this family-run business takes pride in offering you a Whale Watching Cruise with a difference.

Our guide to Gold Coast Whale Watching

Between June and October, the Gold Coast is a haven for majestic humpback whales as they migrate to and from feeding grounds in the icy waters of the Antarctic.

Photo opportunities abound as these playful creatures spy hop, slap their tails and show off with full breaches. Of all the great whales, the Humpback is the most surface active displaying behaviour that will not only inspire you but leave you in awe.

Get up-close and personal with the gentle giants of the sea from the unrivalled water-level viewing decks of the cruise vesse. Passenger numbers are limited to make sure you have a fantastic experience- so have your cameras ready!

Guaranteed rail-side viewing means a 360º unobstructed view of the Humpback’s spectacular acrobatic displays- and don’t forget the cheeky dolphins and turtles keeping us company along the way!

Tours also include a free Rich & Famous Waterways Cruise through the stunning Nerang waterways. Cruise past the magnificent homes and gardens of the stars as our entertaining crew keep you up-to-date with the Gold Coast’s latest Hollywood gossip - all this topped off with complimentary tea, coffee & biscuits- a perfect way to start your tour.


Daily, June to October.

Start times

7.00am, 8.30am, 10.30am, 12.00pm or 2.30pm.
