With over 20 year’s whale watching experience, we invite you to join us for a memorable adventure. As one of the pioneers of Whale Watching on the East Coast of Australia, our Gold Coast location allows Spirit of Gold Coast to enjoy the longest Whale Watching Season in Australia from June to early November each year.
The Gold Coast is the best location for Whale Watching in Australia. This is due to the close proximity of Byron Bay being the most eastern point of the East Coast of Australia and so close to the Continental Shelf. The Humpback Whales always travel inside the Continental Shelf to protect themselves and their calves from the Orca, killer whale, one predator of the Humpbacks.
Spirit of the Gold Coast’s main priority is not only to operate just as a tourist attraction, but to educate their guests and raise awareness of these magnificent creatures. Spirit actively supports Gold Coast Tourism, IFAW, Southern Cross University, and Sea Shepherd; and is a Member of Eco Tourism Australia
