Full description
Witness the majestic beauty of the humpback whale in the ocean off the coast of Noosa during their annual migration. Begin with a relaxing cruise down the Noosa River where you’ll soak up the sights and fantastic views of Noosa from the water. Then, your captain cruises out into the ocean in search of the friendly giants. Your nature-focused cruise will take you to locations that cannot be fully appreciated from the land, including amazing natural cliff formations, emerald forests, hidden coves, and sweeping beaches. Upon locating the whales, enjoy an awe-inspiring experience as you watch these playful giants frolic in their natural habitat.
