Definitely recommend this trip. We didn't expect to see as many whales and feel special to see a mega pod... so special! Expectations were totally exceeded and the lunch was tasty and fresh. The captain and staff were knowledgeable and helpful... nothing was too hard for them A+
Awesome experience. Captain Kerry and her crew were knowledgeable, informative and fun. We would definitely recommend this trip.

It was a great day out whilst seeing a lot of whales.

We had a great day out seeing the whales yesterday. The only downside would be, that it’s not very infant-friendly... even though it was free for an infant, you couldn’t bring a pram or stroller and there were no options for food. You couldn’t even purchase another lunch pack.

A beautiful trip on Moreton Bay - thoroughly recommended!

This is our 4th trip with Brisbane Whale Watching. We love the boat and the crew is always great. Even though the seas were a bit rough this time, we still managed to find several humpbacks. The view along Moreton Island is always interesting and the commentary is well done.

It was absolutely fabulous the staff went above and beyond

The whales were beyond description, it was such an amazing experience I would definitely recommend going with this company. The staff could not do enough for myself and my family. The knowledge was amazing food supplied was good, it is an experience I will never forget.

I highly recommend this whale-watching adventure. Will go again.

Great day out, the is Captain informative, the crew were friendly, and the food was nice and fresh. I would recommend that visibility strips be placed on steps as it was a little difficult to see from one step to the next, descending the stairs on different levels of the vessel. Otherwise, I can’t wait to visit the whales again.

Definitely an experience not forgotten, except for the food 👎

Beautiful conditions were turned on for our experience which was a great one with the lovely crew, whales were a spectacular sight so was Moreton Bay so thank you. The only part of this experience was lunch that was served, prepackaged meals, it should have been fresh salads etc not what anyone expected looking by the faces.

Exceptional experience on the water with the majestic whales.

An absolutely exceptional day. The crew were polite and helpful, and the skipper was professional in her navigation, keeping both the passengers and the whales safe at all times. The food was substantial in size and quality. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone I speak to about it.

What an incredible day!

What an incredible day! Captain Kerry and the crew were welcoming and very professional, Eye Spy was spotlessly clean. We didn't have any trouble finding whales and when we did they came up close to Eye Spy. Some epic photographs and a very memorable day.

Absolutely Amazing

Absolutely Amazing! From start to finish was just fanatic! Staff were lovely and catered for our every need. The boat facilities and ability to walk around the vessels to not only see the whales but to have the best experience with the closeness of the whales were definitely appreciated. My children loved spotting the whales from inside the cabin, their excitement was quite the highlight. Most memorable.
