- Whale Watching on the Gold Coast
The mother whale breached, right next to the boat for all of us to see. Almost immediately after her bub joined in, launching its body out of the water to fall backwards back into the blue.
It was spectacular.
Even the experts on board were astounded, laughing out loud in amazement at a sight that after all their years on board even they had never seen. Cameras clicked, people scrambled around to find their friends, hoping perhaps they had been lucky enough to capture the experience on film.
@ are a fantastic company who truly care not only about their customers on board but the whales they watch. Each vessel comes fully equipped with a sharp tongued captain to put us at ease and relax into the experience. The researcher on board, Nora, was as passionate as she was knowledgeable - happy to answer any question whilst also reminding us about the dwindling sustainability of the species and why it is so important to educate ourselves on what we can do to ensure a sustainable life for the whales.
I will remember our experience for a long time to come. Not just because of the people or the 7 seconds caught on camera in this post, but the majesty and awe the whales inspired. .
If you’re down on the Sunshine Coast... this is a must.
