Can I Go Whale Watching In April

Whale Watching in April Gold Coast

Is it possible to go whale watching in April on Gold Coast?

Unfortunately, April is outside our whale watching season on the Gold Coast.

Our season runs officially from June to early November.

We get some whales passing us by through May, but our whale watching tour boats don't go out until late in May or early June depending on a few factors.

They generally make sure there are plenty of whales going past our coastline, so that they can guarantee passengers will see whales and not be disappointed.

So, unfortunately, if you are planning to visit Gold Coast in April on you will not be able to take a whale watching cruise.

You can still get out and about on the water and enjoy a cruise on the Gold Coast. There are a few different options some including lunch, others including a trip to Sanctuary Cove or to an island hideaway for the day.

If you want to see sealife you could go to Tangalooma for the day and see the wild dolphin feeding.

Another option is to head out to Cook Island off Coolangatta for an unforgetable snorkel with the turtles in the Marine Reserve or if you prefer you can dive. Lots of options with Cooly Dive who run both these dive options plus whale watching tours during our season. They'll look after you and are passionate about the sealife in the area.
Another option is around Gold Coast Seaway and Wavebreak Island for snorkelling and diving tours.

Sorry it wasn't the answer you were looking for, but maybe I have inspired you to still visit in April and enjoy some other options.
