Noosa Whale Watching Safari - Noosaville

Enjoy one of Noosa’s most breath-taking experiences on a spectacular nature cruise to observe humpback whales in their natural habitat…


  • Discover the majestic humpback whales of Noosa
  • Get up close as the whales play in their natural habitat
  • Take a relaxed, nature focused cruise down Noosa River and off the Headland
  • Enjoy views of Noosa and iconic landmarks from the water
  • Cruise past spectacular cliffs, forests, coves and beaches
  • A fantastic idea for the entire family!

Prepare for an experience like no other as you witness the majestic beauty of the humpback whale in Noosa’s aquatic playground during their annual migration.

Beginning with a relaxing cruise down the Noosa River, you’ll soak up the sights and views over Noosa from the water before Captain Nathan cruises out off Noosa heads 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.

On finding the whales, you’ll enjoy an awe inspiring experience that is difficult to put into words - Breaches, tail lobs & pectoral slaps are all part of the spectacular display, and if you come in the later half of the season you may even see a mama with her calf!
