Brisbane Whale Watching Cruises

The season for whale watching in Brisbane is from June to October. This exciting time of the year marks when the Humpback Whales make their way up the Queensland coastline as part of their annual migration. The whales can be sighted from numerous vantage points on the shore, but for a closer and more special encounter, pick a whale watching tour.

We have listed whale watching cruises that cater to different budgets, and offer a variety of tour inclusions and departure times. The cruises have been shortlisted based on their commitment to sustainability – ensuring they operate in a respectful manner.

Whale watching tours from Redcliffe and other nearby jetties take you through the pristine waterways off the Queensland coastline to spot the gentle giants of the ocean – the Humpback Whales. As you unwind on a purpose-built boat and enjoy the roving scenery, keep an eye out for a splash! The whales like to put on a show and often you can sight them breach, tail slap, and playfully socialise, all within arms reach of the boat.

While you enjoy the company of your new friends, don’t forget to tune in to your skipper who will regale you with incredible whale tales for the complete whale watching experience. Choose from the top whale watching tours in Brisbane today!
