Our family absolutely loved our experience on the Spirit of the Gold Coast whale watching tour. The staff were all extremely friendly, professional and ever so helpful. I am in a wheelchair so even though I wasn’t able to go upstairs to the top deck or to the front of the boat I was given a certain place to sit where I was sure to see all the amazing and very exciting whale watching action!! Several staff also checked in on me at different times to make sure I was able to see the whales, and I noticed that they were also checking in with other families as well during the cruise to ensure everyone knew what to do if they felt sea sick and to generally make sure everyone was having a good time. The live commentary by a marine biologist was fascinating and both us adults and our kids loved learning about the whales with all the information provided. We felt very lucky to be able to see a number of whale pods during our cruise, including Mum and calf whales with their escorts, and it will be something we do as a family again next season because we all loved it that much!! I would highly recommend the Spirit of the Gold Coast for your whale watching adventure!!!

The crew were very friendly and professional and took great care to look after the passengers, especially the ones who were suffering from motion sickness. It was nice to be able to see the whales up close even though they were not particularly active on the day we went. We saw some great tail slapping and diving. Will definitely go again but maybe earlier in the season when the whales are not so tired from their travels. It was great to see some calves with their mothers. I appreciated the company being so obliging with rebooking due to rough weather, but third time lucky and we had great weather this time.
