Why are we $50 extra for your whale watching experience than with the other companies?

1. No crowds just your private group! Everybody has a perfect view.

2. Twice as long with the whales as the other tours. We stay out on the water with the whales while the other companies drive back to pick up the next group.

3. BYO food and drink so no extra costs.

4. Enjoy the silence of sailing over the pacific ocean.

5. Our hydrophone allowing us to listen live to the chatter between the mammals.

While under sail with the our Whales and Sails cruise you are taken on a private whale watching Gold Coast tour where we listen live to the whale song and watch their charismatic nature on board your private skippered yacht. The Gold Coast is a fantastic place to watch Humpback and Southern Right whales as they migrate along the “Humpback Highway” between the cold Antarctic waters on the way to the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef and return, what better way to see them than under the power of mother nature sailing silently through the ocean. This migration occurs between May and early November. We have a 100% success rate for finding whales so you can watch their aerobatic breaching, playful spyhopping and territorial tail slapping. This all happens only 45 minutes from Brisbane.
