This was our first Whale watching experience, after traveling around the world this was one thing we hadn't experienced so we chose to go with Whales in Paradise based on the reviews. It did not disappoint, the staff members were great, the boat was nice and clean and we saw a humpback whale and its baby! The staff was very knowledgeable and did a great job educating the passengars on the whales, it was also clear they were very focused on ensuring they did not disrupt the nature path the whales were on as they stayed an appropriate distance and did not chase them just let them be. We had great views from all areas of the boat. All-in-all a great experience.

I was looking forward to seeing the whales breaking out of the water and spurting etc. The weather was a bit cool, and I think the whales had more sense than we did. They stayed under cover! Yes, we did see some "dark lumps", but unfortunately missed out on anything spectacular.
Despite not seeing what we would have really liked to see - it was still exciting to see what we did. The cruise was pleasant and the crew tried to find whales for us. (I believe the afternoon cruise had a great show time).

We were visiting our son whilst on holiday from England. Admittely we had wonderful weather for the early morning trip but nevertheless the experience was fantastic. The boat trip out in itself was a pleasure full of interesting sights but the whale watching itself was beyond expectation. We saw groups of up to ten whales at a time so close to the boat it was amazing with pods of dolphins too. We were possibly lucky with numbers but the whole experience was excellent, the crew very helpful and informative. Just make sure you have a good camera with you.

We had a wonderful morning watching the humpback whales off the coast of Surfers Paradise. We saw so many whales, and 2 of those where babies. The staff on the boat provided information about the whales and other wildlife in the area. A dolphin also came to visit the boat. A fantastic half day adventure that we shall remember for the rest of our lives!

Amazing experience! We didn't have to go far to see our first whales. They are such spiritual creatures. Crew was very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
