Gold Coast, Australia: The expert team of Sea World Whale Watch tours launched its 2018 Whale Watching season today. Guests on-board spotted the first whale on Australia’s Gold Coast.
Humpback Whales travel through seas every year for mating and breeding. They spend the summer months in Antarctica and winter months near the Great Barrier Reef. Every year on their annual migration journey Humpback pass Gold Coast on the way. The Gold Coast whale watching season runs from June to November during the annual Humpback Whale migration.
Sea World’s luxury whale watching vessel Spirit of Migaloo catamaran is custom designed for Whale Watching Tour. It offers maximum passenger comfort and features unique interactive elements and resources including big screens displaying real-time maps and short animated movies about whale anatomy, migration, and conservation.
Sea World Whale Watch Tour Guide, Tacha Mulligan said with about 30,000 whales expected to visit the Gold Coast this year, they are expecting one of the busiest and best whale watching seasons ever.
Sea World Whale Watch tours feature advanced educational facilities along with knowledgeable and passionate tour guides to enhance the overall experience of getting up close to the whales.
Tours run daily throughout the whale season, departing at 10.00am and returning at approximately 12.30pm, with a second tour at 2.00pm on scheduled weekends.
