What you need to know

Join Sea World Cruises on the ultimate whale watching adventure in the Gold Coast. Spy on pods of majestic Humpback Whales from the sea and air on a whale watching cruise and scenic helicopter flight. With Australia's marine experts at the helm, enjoy a front row seat to all the playful action as Humpback Whales and their young calves make the annual journey along Australia's 'Humpback Highway' past the Gold Coast. Witness the world's largest mammals on a 2.5 hour whale watching cruise in the open waters on a purpose built vessel boasting 3 spacious viewing decks for uninterrupted views and an underwater hydrophone to listen to whale songs live during your personal encounter at sea level.

A scenic helicopter flight is included in the package giving you a bird's eye view of the Gold Coast Broadwater and Sea World as well as the chance to spot active whales from the air. Whether you are a first time flyer or not, the thrill of flying low over the Gold Coast in a helicopter is a once in a lifetime opportunity with spectacular views of the golden shores and marine life below. Sea World Cruises depart 3 times a day at 9am, 12pm and 3pm during the whale season while your scenic flight can be booked in on the same day or another day.
