Swim with Whales with Blue Seafaris

Coolangatta, Gold Coast

Encounter the majestic Humpback whale in its own domain beneath the surface! Swim with Whales with Blue Seafaris is an intimate experience with these magnificent creatures. In a small group of just eight swimmers and a guide, we will seek a friendly in-water encounter with curious whales aboard our fast and comfortable boat, “Whale Rider.”

Over the course of 3-4 hours offshore, you will have the chance to see Humpback whales up close. With over 35,000 Humpbacks on Australia’s East coast, sightings are guaranteed, although it’s up to the whales to decide if they want to swim with us. Our highly experienced skipper, who has swum with whales around the world, is skilled in identifying happy and curious whale behavior. By keeping our group size to a maximum of eight swimmers, we increase the chances of a unique and special encounter.

Join us to Swim with Whales with Blue Seafaris today and create unforgettable memories as you swim with whales in the Gold Coast!
