The experience was great...

The experience was great as we were lucky enough to sight whales. There was no signing finding the boat so best to be early to find it and get a seat but overall would recommend and the staff were all very friendly.

Staff on the ship was extremely helpful and friendly. The whales were a bit shy that day compared to other times I experienced but the crew made every effort to find some and we did

Had a great time looking at the skyline of Surfers Paradise and then ultimately finding two very expressive whales who did quite a few jumps. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone.

The crew were friendly and professional but unfortunately we did not sight any whale even on the second trip out to sea.

Hi, Thank you for your review, and for taking the time to share your opinion. As I’m sure you are aware, each day out on the Humpback Highway is incredibly different. When we head out through the seaway each day, there are certain factors that are completely out of our control. This includes how long it takes us to find whales, how many whales we actually encounter, as well as the sea conditions we face. While we hope for a magical experience for our guests on each cruise, with an incredibly close encounter or multiple big breaches to delight all on board, this is simply not how all whale watching experience works. We are incredibly blessed to be able to witness the Humpback Whales in their natural environment. After being hunted to near extinction, they still make the same 10,000 kilometre journey each year, and continue to grace us with their awe-inspiring presence. But each time we head out into the open ocean, we need to remember that we are in their home. Whether they come close to us or choose to keep their distance, whether they put on a show or remain completely elusive – it is entirely up to them. We are their guests, and we are so grateful for any encounter. Thank you again for sharing your opinion, and wishing you Whale Blessings, Spirit Management.
