Description

The humpback whale is known for their long migration journeys each winter, putting on a magnificent display of breaching, tail slapping and spy hopping as they make their way to warmer waters. South-East Queensland is one of the best places to view these amazing creatures, with over 16,000 whales expected to journey past Moreton Island this winter. This is definitely something you don't want to miss!

General Comments

Moreton Island is the closest point from Brisbane to see humpback whales as they migrate past Moreton Island each season.

As the Dolphin Feeding Program and Whale Watch Cruise involve wild animals, Tangalooma cannot guarantee the attendance of dolphins at the nightly feeding or the sighting of whales and other marine life on the cruises. However, the resort does experience a 98-99 per cent attendance and sighting rate. All cruises are dependent upon good weather conditions and cancellations may occur at short notice; please provide them with current contact information so they can contact you if necessary.

How To Get There

The launch departure point is at Holt Street Wharf in Pinkenba, Brisbane. For maps and driving directions please visit the web site and follow the links. Travel time between Brisbane and Tangalooma Island Resort is approximately 75 minutes each way.
