Our luxury whale watching vessel Spirit of Migloo is named after the famous white humpback whale Migaloo.
Migaloo appeared in Australian waters at a time of great significance; a time when Humpback Whales first showed signs of recovery after decades of slaughter at the hands of Australian whalers. Migaloo represents the powerful spirit of magic and wonder that lies at the very heart of the natural world. Accordingly our vessel, Spirit of Migloo, is named in honour of this Great Spirit.
Spirit of Migloo will carry you into the world of the whales in air-conditioned luxury and comfort. Built at a cost of $3.5M, she is Australia’s most advanced whale watching vessel with an amazing on-board Whale Theatre, three levels of viewing platforms, large walk-around decks and restricted passenger numbers to ensure an uncrowded, personalised whale watching experience.
Ultra-quiet, low emission engines, toilet waste holding tanks and whale-friendly keel means the whales and their marine environment are not harmed or disturbed.
To stand beneath the famous whale tail canopy is to feel the awesome size and power of the largest mammal on earth.
