If you are looking for a relaxing day out on the water and in a tropical paradise island setting then a Tall Ship Cruise could be a great option for you.

Enjoy a fabulous adventure to South Stradbroke Island on either their majestic sailing ship Sir Henry Morgan, the Maranoa or on their fastcat.  

Tall Ships cruises leave from Marina Mirage at Main Beach and go to the exclusive McLaren’s Landing resort which is only for day trippers or parties.  

The Tall Ship Full Day Cruises leave from Marina Mirage each day around 9am, returning at around 4.15pm. You'll need to be at the marina no later than 8.30am for boarding. 

Enjoy a leisurely morning and afternoon tea on board the tall ship as you sail up the Broadwater, past Southport, Runaway Bay, Ephraim Island, Sovereign Islands, Sanctuary Cove as well as Couran Cove on your way to McLaren's Landing - which is almost as far north as Jacobs Well if you want to check it out on a map!

Tall Ships Whale Watching Cruises

During the Gold Coast whale migration season from June to early November each year Tall Ships also run one of the Whale Watching Tours - known as "Whale Watching Gold Coast by Tall Ship".

This tour is on a very large catamaran which is nice and big and stable. Making it suitable for most visitors to enjoy whale watching.

Whale watching tours are usually half a day in length and during the morning (which is one of the best times to see the whales), but can be combined with a trip to the island hideaway for a full day of adventure full or half day whale watching cruises.

You can also check out other Gold Coast whale watching tours and information.
