2019 Whale Season

Starts 28th May 2019

2019 Whale watching season is here

In 2019, we expect this season to be one of the best seasons on record. Last year it was estimated over 20,000 whales passed through the gold coast and we are expecting similar if not larger numbers this year. So now is the time to get in early and book your place on Coolangatta / Tweed Head regions. Our cruises depart 6 days a week, every Wednesday through to Monday from the ivory Marina, 156 Wharf St Tweed Heads NSW. Cruises depart 8:30am and return 11.30am. Spaces are limited as we restrict seating to 50 only to ensure you get a personalised cruising experience and interrupted viewing from anyone of our 3 separate viewing platforms. So book early to secure your place on our 60 ft purpose built whale watching catamaran the “George Bass”.
