ABSOLUTELY AWESOME DAY. Of you get the chance to get onboard, you will have a great day thanks

First time whale watching and definitely, the most amazing day spent watching the most graceful majestic humpback whales. We did the VIP package and was a great way to go with lunch, drinks and plenty of whales and a calf. Also plenty of dorsal slapping surface entertainment to be had. WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE THANKS BRISBANE WHALE WATCHING

Brisbane whale watching cruise from Redcliffe Jetty

Excellent all round. Couldn't fault anything from the boarding process, service in VIP area, commentary with great information and nice lunch. Will definitely be doing it again next year and recommending to all of our interstate family who come to visit.
