What our customers are saying


“Happy grandparent”

Thanks to your attentive staff who helped me ensure my two precious grandchildren were safe and happy.


“So much to see”

We had the best time!! The weather was very kind and the whales were all around us. What an amazing experience. We saw it all, even a turtle floated by. We had a great trip out to the whales and back in again to Redcliffe. The time went by very quickly and the Tour was over before we knew it. So much to see.


“First experience”

Thank you for providing the opportunity to watch this great creature – whales. Indeed it was our first experience and the display of the whales was magnificent. All in all, the meals served, boat ride and whale watching was just too perfect and made us our day complete. We’d love to come again in future.


“Baby whale spotting”

Hi, just like to say “Thank you” for a great day, we were lucky enough to have perfect weather and saw plenty of wales, including one new-born calf. The boat was modern and very clean and tidy and the staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. All in all it was a great day and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.


“Terrific time on your tour”

We had a terrific time on your tour. Thank you very much. So pleased to see so many ACTIVE whales up close and the baby one was definitely a highlight. Lunch was awesome as well.

A very pleasant and enjoyable trip.

Thank you.

Deb and Joe (Darwin)

“Capturing whale photo’s”

I love whale watching, I find it very relaxing. Over the last few years, I have tried to go every year, and usually with Brisbane Whale Watching. The crew are always very friendly and helpful and it is always a pleasant day.

I enjoy photography and love trying to catch photos of whales (with varying degrees of success).

I have attached two photos I took yesterday. Thank you for an enjoyable day.


“Fantastic day out”

Brilliant day… the staff are knowledgeable and friendly with a great sense of humour. There was a fun feel to the whole day, the boat is modern and clean, the food was really nice too. We saw several pods of whales; some came quite close to the boat. It really is well worth doing, highly recommended.


“Good value day trip”

My grand-daughter and I took this trip last weekend and it was really a great experience. The crew on EyeSpy looked after the crowd on board with professional ease. We enjoyed tea/coffee and fruit before heading out into Moreton Bay and beyond, found the whales and bobbed around for an hour or more watching them frolic around our boat. The cold buffet lunch was delicious. More tea/coffee and cake on the trip back to the jetty. Thoroughly recommendable!


“We really enjoyed our day”

After cruising the local Sunday market, which is an attraction in itself and after enjoying a great breakfast at the Workshop cafe on the Esplanade, we boarded the ‘Eye Spy’ for a 10am departure. First impressions are important, the captain and crew are friendly and welcoming and the boat was spotlessly clean. Whales were spotted off the inside of Morton Island and the day just kept getting better and better with more and more whales to be seen. A fantastic sight. The luncheon buffet was an excellent selection of cold meats and salads and there was plenty of food. Dont forget to leave room for the afternoon tea! Captain Kerry and her crew worked hard to provide a great and enjoyable day out for everyone. If you come to South East Queensland, this is the best whale watching boat with the best captain and crew!

“Incredibly Awesome – A Whale of a time !”

A fantastic unforgettable day full of sights of spectacular creatures that will remain with me for a lifetime. Captain Kerry has an unending enthusiasm and a truly unique rapport with these amazing whales. The boat is very comfortable and , not over crowded so everyone was able to enjoy the amazing views of the whales close up breaching, swimming around and underneath the boat, just as if they understood Captain Kerry calling them over. For anyone in the Brisbane , Sunshine or Gold Coast area a day on Eye Spy with Kerry and her fantastic crew is a Must Do. Don’t miss this incredible experience with Brisbane Whale Watching – you will not be disappointed.

“Great way to spend the day”

It was a bit windy on the day but that didn’t stop us from having a great day on the bay with plenty of whale action. the staff and crew were very friendly and helpful, food was good and the boat is more than capable of the task. as I sat down with my lunch on the side deck a whale passed no more than 10m to my right- pretty cool.

Michael O

“Great Day Out”

This was a great day out. We saw lots of whales. The boat is very comfortable and clean. Captain Kerry is very knowledgeable. The crew are absolutely charming and work very hard to make the trip a memorable experience for all their guests. They seem to be genuinely concerned that everyone has a great trip. Very impressive customer service. We did not eat lunch so I cannot comment on the quality of the food.

“On behalf of Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful day our group had with the Brisbane Whale Watching Team on Saturday 24 September 2005.

What an amazing day! The group couldn’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed themselves, and they were all asking when they could do it again. Mot to mention the excitement of having a calf named in honour of them. The staff at the office were all pretty excited about that too, I might add!

Please pass on my sincere thanks to Oliver, Michelle, Josh and the rest of the crew that assisted us on that day. They really helped to make it so much more enjoyable. From my point of view, you really did make my day so much easier – Thank you!”

Alice Campey, Recreation Coordinator, Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association

“My friend and I joined our whale watching tour on the morning of Wednesday 28th June and I can’t say enough about the way we were treated right from the instant we boarded the ship up until when we walked off. I don’t know if you remember me, but I am mildly disabled…I have a weak right leg, paralysed right arm and my balance is fair to bad at best. But despite these “problems” I had a fantastic day on the bay, as did Meg, my friend from the US, because you all looked after us almost like we were some sort of royalty! Not only was coffee and lunch served to me at my table but you went to the trouble of maneuvering the boat around the whales so that they were on my side of the ship in order for me to be able to see them from my seated position! Further, I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count the number of times the crew checked to see if we were comfortable or if anything more could be done for us. To say that you did everything possible for us and then some would be a gross understatement! Also it would be remiss of me not to mention the whales who turned out an outstanding show for, not just me, but all of us onboard…They truly are magnificent creatures which we would be all the poorer for is we allowed them to be wiped out. Finally. I just wanted to say how impressed ZI was by the enthusiasm of the captain’s commentary – her enthusiasm certainly added to the entire experience.

Thank you the entire crew of Eye-Spy!”

On behalf of Tourism Noosa’s volunteers and myself, I would like to congratulate you on a truly wonderful tour last Friday 18th July. We all agree that you and your crew are most welcoming and professional in every way. To see how the Whales interact with you shows the great relationship you have with these magnificent creatures. We would have no hesitation in recommending your tour to our visitors. Thank you again.


Alison Potter, Tourism Noosa

A quick note to say thank you very much for the fantastic family day I had on Wednesday 16th July with my friend. We both thoroughly enjoyed our day!

Congratulations to Captain Kerry and her crew for providing a great day trip for all. Our bus driver on pick up was so welcoming and delightful The boat was comfortable and had the best viewing platforms. And the water level windows on the lower level were great while we were eating our lunch to still view the magnificent creatures at play.

Morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch was superb!

The crew members were spot on with safety – I saw all of them keep a handout and watchful eye on all guests as they walked around the slippery decks. They were also very friendly and chatty and kept us entertained.

Even though the weather was cold and wet, the whole day was a fantastic experience! I will be trying my best to sell this tour to our guests and also mention it to friends and family as a great day out!

Thanks again

Gillian, Mantra on Queen

“Kerry. There is only one thing that I want to say “If I die tomorrow. I have lived”.

My Son and Daughter-in-Law took me on your “whale watching” trip on Saturday and I cannot thank you and your crew for such a wonderful, breathtaking experience, being 72 this was my birthday present.

Coming from Murwillumbah I doubted about seeing any WHALES – I was so wrong, can I come back??? I have rung my friends in Sydney and told them they have to come and visit and we will go “Whale Watching”.

I was so enthralled, I have watched TV programmes and thought: “How wonderful,” mind you until you see these creatures in the “flesh/wild” so the speak, one comprehends the beauty of these creatures, I can assure you I will never feel the same when I see a WHALE on T. V. as now I can say I have seen a real one.

Thank you and your crew for such a wonderful day, the crew service was excellent, the food was excellent, everything was organised to perfection. I congratulate you and your staff”

Wendy Pooley

I just wanted to thank everyone at Brisbane Whale Watching for such an incredible day on Friday. My colleagues and I had an absolutely fantastic time, and I think some of us are still buzzing this morning from the experience. I took a photo on the day which I think is pretty special and thought it would be nice to share it with you guys.

Thanks again for such an awesome day.

Hi – I just had to drop you an email and thank you for the absolutely wonderful experience we had on the Eye-Spy on Thursday !!!

It was my dad’s 67th birthday, so we decided to take him on the whale watching day – there were 9 of us in total, and we were all so impressed ! Even before we boarded the boat we were impressed by the staff in the office when we paid for the trip – so friendly and welcoming !! The staff on the boat are even more fantastic – professional, fun, so helpfull and knowledgeable (thank you Tippy for telling my niece about the whale footpath – she was very proud of herself at school on Friday when she told everyone where she had been).

My dad doesn’t have great eye sight, but could see the whales perfectly, and he really really enjoyed himself ! We will definitely be back, and we have all been telling everyone how fantastic you all are !! I’ve attached one of the shots I got that I’ve titled waterfall – thought you may like to see. (I’m a member of a few photographic forums and groups, and I have been raving about you all online as well).

Once again, thank you for a day that none of us will ever forget – and for giving my little nieces and nephew a day out with their grandparents that they will always remember and cherish !!!!

Kind Regards

Narelle Power

I’d just like to say a big “thank you” for taking me out (FOC) last Saturday on the Whale Watching cruise. I had a wonderful day with husband and my parents (who were visiting from SA) It was a lovely time shared by all.

Again, thank you for making our day together memorable.

Kind regards,

Amanda, Brisbane Marketing
