Whale Watching Season on the Gold Coast typically lasts from May until November. The whales can usually be seen from the beach, headlands and beachfront balconies as they make their migration along ‘Humpback Highway’; spouting water, slapping their tales and breaching.
But your surest best to see whales on the Gold Coast is with a guided cruise to get an up close experience and guaranteed sightings*!
There are quite a few different tour operators on the Gold Coast offering whale watching tours including departures from Sea World, Main Beach and Surfers Paradise. There are even some tours that include combo passes with entry into Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Dreamworld or Sea World. Or an afternoon whale watching cruise followed by dinner at QT Bazaar.
