Whale watching “without the crowds”.
Looking for a Whale Watching experience you will remember and want to talk about for a long time? Sure, its always amazing when you get to see the whales. But lets face it, doing so while trying to catch a glimpse over the top of 2 or more people in front of you isn’t that great. Wouldn’t it be a lot better if you always had an uncrowded rail-side position?! Always able to take pictures or video without the heads of other people in the way?! Of course you do. We all do. If we all loved being crowded with others, public transport would be WAY more popular! But reality is that we all prefer our own space in our own car whenever possible. Well, this tour is what you are looking for to have that little extra luxury!
Crusader 1 is a large, open deck vessel which allows full walk around access, even to the bow of the boat where you can often watch the dolphins play and follow our path. You will ALWAYS have that rail side position, ready for that perfect photo or that unobstructed view. With a maximum of 22 passengers at any time, all of our guests enjoy total visibility and proximity to whales, dolphins, as well as the many other kinds of marine life we encounter. And with the undoubtedly the most up-close and close-to-the-water viewing decks of any vessel on the Sunshine Coast, this tour offers a very special and personal day out on the water with these inquisitive, majestic animals. Add to this our friendly and professional staff, and we can guarantee you will enjoy an incredible day of whale watching. You really do have the chance to get up close and personal with these gentle giants of the sea and encounter pods of dolphins and turtles that are regular sightings.
Humpback whales are not only beautiful but also playful and curious creatures. You will be in awe of the spectacular breaching, close encounters, magical songs and tail slapping.
Light refreshments and non alcohol drinks are included
