Sea World Whale Watch Ready For Up-coming Season
Sea World Whale Watch will again offer the ultimate whale watching experience on the Gold Coast. Guests will experience an unprecedented level of education along with the awe-inspiring natural experience of getting up close and personal with the world’s largest marine mammals.
Sea World's custom designed $3.4M catamaran will comfortably carry in excess of 100 passengers and will operate daily (weather permitting) from the Sea World Whale Watch Terminal.
The whale watching season runs from 30 May to November during the annual Humpback Whale migration and sees between 8,000 and 10,000 whales travel past the Gold Coast. The whales migrate along the east coast of Australia on their annual journey to the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef to calf and mate. These magnificent mammals then begin the long journey home to feed on the krill rich Antarctic waters.
Sea World Whale Watch experienced a fantastic inaugural season in 2008, with 100% whale sightings and thousands of happy whale watchers. The Sea World Whale Watch crew is also looking forward to assisting with whale rescues in 2009, after their 2008 experience where the crew spotted and followed an entangled whale until the Sea World Research and Rescue team arrived to assist.
Sea World Whale Watch tickets cost $88 for Adults and $66 for Children and Pensioners. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase their Whale Watching ticket as part of a combo deal which will include entry into Sea World. Take a Whale Watch Tour and visit Sea World over 2 days and pay just $99 Adults, $77 Children and Pensioners*.
