Great day out. Unfortunately we didn't really see much of the whales as it was the end of the season and weather wasn't ideal. However the experience was amazing. All the staff were super accommodating. They extended the trip and went out further than usual as the afternoon session had cancelled due to weather. Just being out in the middle of the ocean was fantastic. Sit out on the deck where possible, you get the best view and help avoid sea sickness. Will rebook next season for sure.

The office staff were so helpful when I needed to change the date and time of our trip (twice). The actual whale watching was really great experience with plenty of them (the whales) showing off right in front of us and doing what they love to do in the Gold Coast waters. Staff were very helpful and watchful over us as the waters weren't so smooth that particular afternoon... but we still had a fantastic trip. Highly recommend Spirit Whale Watching.
