Brisbane Whale Watching with Transfers

Spend a memorable day watching mighty humpback whales as they play in the calm azure waters of Moreton Bay.

Head to Redcliffe Jetty to join your whale discovery cruise for an exciting whale watching adventure.

Between June and November, Moreton Bay is a haven for majestic humpback whales as they migrate to and from feeding grounds in the icy waters of the Antarctic. Photo opportunities abound as these playful creatures spy hop, slap their tails and show off with full breaches. Of all the great whales, the Humpback is the most surface active displaying behaviour that will not only inspire you but leave you in awe. There quite clearly is no better place to observe the mighty Humpback Whales than Brisbane’s Moreton Bay, acknowledged as one of the world’s best whale watching destinations in the world.

Your Captain Kerry Lopez, is recognised as the only female Captain that owns and skippers a whale watching venture in the South Pacific rim. Kerry's skilled and dedicated friendly crew will assure you an unforgettable whale watching adventure. Cruises take place on the ultra modern MV Eye-Spy, a luxury catamaran that has been purpose built for whale viewing. The catamaran includes 360 degree walk around lower and upper decks, a sun deck and a fully licensed bar.

Your cruise includes a sumptuous buffet lunch plus morning or afternoon tea.
