From June to November, the humpback whales are cruising along the southern coast of Queensland. You can usually spot them blowing quite easily from the coast. If you are spending a day or staying on North Stradbroke Island you can take advantage of the whale watch Tower at Point Lookout. This will give you a better chance to see these amazing animals. For those who want to get closer – much closer – you can jump on the MV Eye-Spy, a luxury catamaran purposely built for whale-watching. The boat departs from Redcliffe Jetty daily with optional bus transfer from Brisbane. Once on board, you will be given an excellent commentary and educational information about these huge mammals. The cruise also includes morning tea and lunch, but the highlight of course is seeing the whales swimming around the catamaran. It’s a breathtaking moment. Just a piece of advice: don’t forget your camera!
