Of all the great whales, the Humpback is the most surface active displaying behaviour that will not only inspire you but leave you in awe. There quite clearly is no better place to observe the mighty Humpback Whales than Brisbane’s Moreton Bay, acknowledged as one of the world’s best whale-watching destinations in the world.


With a VIP ticket, you'll enjoy elevated service and bonuses. This includes access to the VIP Lounge situated on the mid-deck level located directly behind the Captain’s Wheelhouse. This exclusive elevated VIP area has limited tables with reserved seating. You'll also enjoy priority boardingpriority lunch service, and a complimentary drink. Enjoy a beautiful, gourmet lunchbox as you look on in awe as these amazing gentle giants relax in your company, breach, blow and play all within meters from the boat.


So get ready to come aboard the magnificent Eye-Spy. The vessel is a high-speed, air-conditioned luxury catamaran, and represents the ultimate in ‘whale friendly’ design and technology, including low noise skewback propellers and low wash characteristic hull design. It also boasts 3 levels, 6 outdoor viewing decks, and a large bow for spacious unobstructed viewing. An underwater microphone allows you to listen in on the whales as they communicate by grunting, moaning and singing while an underwater GoPro gives you a different perspective of the whales and their behaviour.


The boat works in collaboration with the Sky Spy aircraft, which uses aviation radio communication to relay to the Eye Spy the exact location of the whales. This reduces transit time to the sighting grounds whilst also providing guests with up to the minute whale behaviour commentary.


Located 30 minutes north of the Brisbane CBD on the beautiful Redcliffe Peninsula, this is a luxury whale watching adventure. Your Captain, Kerry Lopez, is recognised as the only female Captain that owns and skippers a whale watching venture in the South Pacific rim. Her skilled and dedicated friendly crew will assure you an unforgettable whale watching adventure. As an Eco Accredited Company, we believe that providing people with an opportunity to witness these amazing creatures first-hand, not only puts a lot of smiles on guests faces but offers an increased awareness of the beauty of nature and the need to nurture our precious wildlife.

Each year from June through until early November, the mighty southern humpback whales grace us with their beauty as they migrate through the crystal clear waters of South East Queensland. Each and every tour is a unique experience and sightings vary from day to day. Whilst the humpback whales are the stars of the show, a typical tour may encounter pods of dolphins leaping and playing alongside our magnificent vessel as well as an array of other marine life.
