purpose-built for Whalewatching. We get you there fast!


Australia’s Ultimate 5 Star Whale Watching Vessel

Brisbane Whale Watching’s high-speed, air conditioned luxury catamaran ‘Eye Spy’ represents the ultimate in ‘whale friendly’ design and technology. Built locally by South Pacific Marine in Brisbane, she features the latest in environmentally friendly technology with low noise skewback propellers, low wash characteristic hull design and the latest MTU 2000 V16 series diesel engines.

The MTU’s have highly advanced, environmentally friendly fuel control features specifically designed to allow the engines to idle for long periods without fouling and to minimise fuel consumption. Dr McCouley of Curtin University’s Centre for Marine Science and Technology says the de-coupling of the engines from the hull by using flexible mounts, also adds to ‘whale friendliness’ by reducing underwater noise and vibration.

“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.”
