“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We have been on this whale watch tour twice this season and been totally amazed by the beauty and grace of these giants of the sea.We have been on other whale tours on the Gold coast and by far Coolangata is the best. We were spotting whales within 20 mins and the commentary delivery was superb, gave a great insight and understanding of whales behaviour,history and issues now faced by the whales.The crew was always friendly and the boat gave excellent viewing opportunities.We will be there next season.

“A memorable day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I very much enjoyed the whale watch tour with Coolangatta Whale Watch Cruises last Thursday (27th Sept). I felt I was in competent hands, with a very able crew. The commentary was also very interesting, and made for an entertaining and informative 3 hours. Hearing the actual whale sounds "live," was incredible. Thank you all for a memorable day.

“What a day!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Went out on the 16th September 2012, and we were amongst the whales in about 20 minutes. Amazing !!!!!!! The running narrative was exceptional. The entire crew were great, friendly and could not be more friendly if they tried. We took our parents with us and they were amazed. They commented that they had been on other whale watching trips and this was the best so far. Will be coming back.. Highly recommend this to a
