Our skipper and crew educated us all about the habits of whales and I must admit I learned alot.
Back into Mariners Cove then it was all aboard a speed boat headed for McLarens Landing, South Stradbroke Island for lunch. We spent about 2 hours on the island where we were greeted by the local wallabies, and staff.
A walk through the bushland, a swim and then back onboard the boat back to the main land.
This is a trip I would highly recommend, very reasonably priced and a very relaxed outing. Tall Ships have a few different whale watching trips, so take a look at their website to find out the different packages available.
