We had a WHALE of a time.
Brisbane Whale Watching boat Eye-Spy which leaves from the Redcliffe Jetty to go out whale watching.
Mick & I went on this cruise last year & it was amazing. We had talked it up so much that Mum put it on her bucket list for this year.
Upon embarking you get a nice cuppa tea or coffee & a piece of super yummy carrot or chocolate cake. It was a bit choppy going out but I had taken a few sea-sickness tablets so I was fine. Mum took some too & they made her mega-drousy but aleast she didn't get sick.
After about an hour and a half we finally spotted a pod of whales & the ferry headed toward them.
If you haven't been whale watching & seen these beautiful creatures up close you simply MUST do it.
The cruise on Eye-Spy is $135 & I reckon worth every penny.
At about one o'clock we headed back. It's amazing how just being on the water makes you so incredibly tired. The crew came around with some fresh fruit but we were all SO relaxed that we could barely keep our eyes open. In fact Mummsy & Bri-Bri had a bit of a kip.
We got back in around 2.30 and hit The Coffee Club on the water for a bit of a caffeine pick-me-up.
It was such a lovely day with my grouse family.
I will never tire of watching those magnificent creatures frolicking & hamming it up.
Oh the whales were good too.
