A lot has happened in the world of whales in the last few weeks, leaving Olaf from Humpbacks and High-Rises with lots to talk about but not enough time!
We recently caught up with him to discuss what he and the team of volunteers have been up to recently.
Let’s take it back to Migaloo.. The big white whale and iconic whale ambassador that passed the Gold Coast on the 11th of July 2017.
MIGALOO!! This is one whale I can definitively
Whales in Paradise is a family owned business, and our extended family are our staff. Over the past few years our team has tripled in size due to our year-round tours / charters, and our fleet now doing up to 5 whale watching trips per day, during the whale watching season.

Our whale watching season on the Gold Coast finishes next Sunday the 6th of November. Come join Whales in Paradise for the final days of seeing mothers and their calves, in their natural habitat off Surfers Paradise, Main Beach and Broadbeach.
Everyday this season Whales in Paradise have been blessed to see these majestic animals and their acrobatic displays. Each year when we see the mother’s return from Far North East Australia, it warms our heart as we watch them teach their newly born babies the ways of the underwater
In regards to the shark cull along the WA coast, on Saturday the 22nd of February at Moses Rocks, a tiger shark was pulled up by a South West fishing contractor. The tiger shark had his tail entangled in rope and was severely distress, so much so that he threw up his entire stomach contents. The substance contained oil, which is used to lure great white sharks in for tagging. The shark was shot three times in the head. Alive/Release?
Another incident occured where a tiger shark was caught on a
We received a Whales In Paradise Testimonial that had some awesome action photos of some humpback whales that we wanted to share with our fans. Thank you to the guest by the name of Galen Bonner who was blessed to have an awesome cruise out with us a few months ago and also had these photos he took, that he wanted to share.
This is what Galen had to say: “Thank you for a great trip out on Saturday afternoon, here are a few of my favourite photo’s”.
We have been amazed
Whale watching season finishes on the Gold Coast this weekend, so if you’re hoping to see the whales before they all head back to Antarctica you will need to get in quick.
Otherwise, we will be starting our Reef Ryder Island Cruises Gold Coast from the 1st of December through till the 30th of April next year. This is our summer cruise where you get to enjoy some of the best of the Gold Coast beaches on those hot summer days whilst on a secluded island called ‘Wave Break Island’.
Even though the weather can look a bit grey outside for us, the whales don’t mind the rain and were happy on this particular cruise last week to show us their acrobatic skills. It’s so exciting to see the whole pod become so active like this group of humpbacks did. The humpback whales kept breaching with their full body, upper body, pectoral side fins and tails in the air with the magnificent skyline of Surfers Paradise in the background. They were having so much fun that I don’t think they
This is the most common question we get asked from curious guests wanting to come out whale watching with us:
“When’s the best time to see whales?”
With the humpback whales being wild animals, it’s hard for us to predict this as we see something different on every cruise. But the whales do keep swimming through the ocean on their whale migration no matter what time of day it is. They actually don’t sleep like us humans do, as they need to be conscious to come to the surface to take a
Come aboard our boat and let the whales entertain you!! There are still plenty of whales in our oceans of the Gold Coast. The activity of the whales this end of season has been phenomenal. We have been blown away with the amount of whale pods we still have migrating through the Gold Coast on their way to Antarctica.
Lately every tour we have been seeing Mother Humpbacks with their Calves and even the Mothers teaching their babies how to breach..This has been a fascinating
