The sea world whale watch is definitely a must if on the gold coast. The boat is fully built for the job and is modern, clean and comfortable. The staff were very informative and happy to help. At the start of out trip, we saw nothing for around 2 hours. We ended up out at sea for an extra hour... More

We had a wonderful morning whale watching. The boat was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Lots of background information on whales was giving during our journey out of the harbor. We were treated to a mother and baby whale swimming around the boat and several others that were swimming nearby. Really fun day!

The ride was wonderful the whales gave a show and we enjoyed the time very much, but most of all I would like to compliment the behavior of the crew. From that moment we set out they tried to lower expectations as to what we might see, as this is watching animals in their environment and you can never know... More

We spent this morning out on the Sea World whale boat. We were lucky to see a couple of pods of whales and had a great morning. The weather was great, sunny and fairly warm and the water very clear so we could see the whales even deep under the water. We even had a cheeky dolphin join the boat... More

The morning trip was a great way to see not only whales but dolphins with 1st class boat and experienced crew. The boat was extremely clean and the crew were very professional. Money well spent.

This is something you must do on the Gold Coast. We where lucky to see a pod of 4 whales and also a pod of Common Nose dolphins on our trip. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. There was a full commentary during the whole trip. We found it great value for money. Single tickets are $99, but we... More

We are locals that took our visitors on the whale watch, mainly because I love the Sea World boat and thought it would be a pleasant way to spend a morning. The crew had no trouble locating whales and they were as fascinated with them as we were, even though they see them every day. With extra offers we did... More

I definitely recommend this. Bought a combo package Whale Watch and Sea World entry. It was very good value. The boat was well maintained and clean. Plenty of room for us to move around. We were on the 2pm cruise and it wasn't crowded. The Capt and crew were experienced and knowledgable. They took in every consideration about the behaviour... More
