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.

The Sky Spy

Brisbane Whale Watching’s magnificent catamaran ‘Eye Spy’ is guided directly to the whales thanks to aerial vision from a small Cessna 172 aircraft aptly named ‘Sky Spy.’

Using live on board aviation radio communication, Sky Spy’s pilot will provide exact latitude and longitude of the whale’s location reducing transit time to the sighting grounds whilst also providing guests with live up to the minute whale behaviour commentary.
