Sea World Whale Watch launches 2015 season

Sea World Whale Watch launches 2015 season
May 29, 2015

The expert team at Sea World Whale Watch have officially launched their 2015 Whale Watching season as the first of thousands of Humpback Whales arrive off the Gold Coast on the northern leg of their annual migration journey.

Sea World Whale Watch’s custom designed $3.5 million catamaran Spirit of Migaloo offers the Gold Coast’s premier whale watching experience with advanced educational facilities to enhance the overall experience of getting up close to the whales.

Sea World’s Curator of Mammals, Mitchell Leroy said with about 20,000 whales expected to visit the Gold Coast this year, Sea World Whale Watch is expecting one of the busiest and best whale watching seasons ever.

Leroy explained “passengers aboard the Sea World Whale Watch vessel will be sure to benefit from the large whale number passing the Gold Coast with the potential for a memorable encounter with these majestic mammals on every tour.

“Sea World Whale Watch offers guests the ultimate whale watching experience with a strong focus on education and conservation to broaden and deepen the whale watching experience.

“The Spirit of Migaloo is designed for maximum passenger comfort and features unique interactive elements and resources including big screens displaying real-time maps and short animated movies about whale anatomy, migration and conservation.

“The Gold Coast whale watching season runs from June to November during the annual Humpback Whale migration. The whales migrate along the east coast of Australia on their annual journey to the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef to calve and mate.”

Sea World Whale Watch run tours daily throughout the whale season, departing at 10.00am and returning at approximately 12.30pm, with a second tour at 2.00pm on scheduled weekends.
