Experience Whale Watching withGet Away Sailing Cruises on the Gold Coast with our Whales and Sails cruise where you are taken on a whale watching Gold Coast tour where we listen live to the whale song and watch their charismatic nature on board your private skippered yacht. Based at Runaway Bay Marina, and popular with both locals and visitors to the Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast is a fantastic place to watch Humpback and Southern Right whales as they migrate along the ‘Humpback Highway’ between the cold Antarctic waters on the way to the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef and return, what better way to see them than under the power of mother nature sailing silently through the ocean. This migration occurs between May and early November.
Remember this is a private booking so we can tailor the day for you and your guests.
