What better way to get to know the Gold Coast than by enjoying two of its most loved experiences! Begin your day with a whale watching cruise and discover migrating humpback whales as they play and frolic in the beautiful Gold Coast waters from June to November! With a backdrop of Surfers Paradise, you'll not only be in for an awesome animal encounter but also some spectacular scenery! Leaving from a central Surfers Paradise location, getting to the departure point couldn't be easier! Located close to popular hotels, public transport and car parks, you couldn't ask for a more accessible location! Travelling aboard a purpose built whale watching vessel, the friendly team will ensure you a personalised experience getting up close with these majestic creatures of the deep!

Following your three-hour whale watching adventure, take the lift to level 77 of the Q1 and enjoy spectacular views of the entirety of the Gold Coast from the SkyPoint Observation Deck! Best of all, if you're not wanting to rush either of these experiences, you have 6 months from date of purchase to enjoy your SkyPoint Observation Deck voucher.
