With nearly 30 years experience in the field, we offer one of the most comprehensive whale watching tours in Queensland aboard a comfortable multi award-winning sailing vessel, taking you right to the spot where the whales are. Be ready for some tail-slapping, breaching, pectoral slapping or spy-hopping; these magnificent marine creatures will take your breath away as you get up close and personal with them in their own environment, creating a memory that will last forever.
