Premier Whale Watching

Tangalooma WHale Watching Day Cruise from Brisbane

1st June - 15th October 2017

Since 1987, Tangalooma Island Resort has offered Brisbane's closest whale watching cruise, plus the opportunity to enjoy 'island life' for the day, and night if you stay over. Our vessel is a smooth sailing, comfortable catamaran. And our island is alive with fun things to do, from land and water sports to just lazing around on the beach.

With over 30 years of whale watching experience - it's never a 'fluke'
