Top Tips

From June through to October, visitors to Tangalooma can partake in a daily Whale Watching Cruise to see these amazing ocean giants up close! Over the course of 3 enjoyable hours, you'll join one of the city's best and longest-running operators and board the largest whale watching vessel to see the majestic humpback whales in their natural environment. Transfers are included from Brisbane's Holt Street Wharf to get to Tangalooma with departure times available at either 7am or 10am, before the whale watching cruise heads out from the island at 12pm and returning at 4pm giving you great value for money plus ample time to see the humpbacks breach and play.

This is a great opportunity for guests to get a close view of these gentle giants and watch them breach, tail slap and spy hop as they display some of their acrobatic behaviour. The cruise includes a light lunch on board as well as educational commentary throughout the cruise by an Eco Ranger from Tangalooma's Eco Centre. Guests participating in the day cruise from the Mainland will have time prior to the launch departure to visit the Resort and Eco Centre where they can access additional information on whales and dolphins.
