Whale Watching on the Gold Coast
Every year from May, guests arrive at Oscar on Main, Main Beach, to take advantage of the gorgeous weather, our autumn specials, and to go whale watching, though it's not uncommon to see these majestic creatures from the ocean-view balcony of your Main Beach accommodation.Whales commonly pass by Main Beach from May to as late as November as they trek first north to their breeding grounds and then south with their young ones. Every year more than 7,000 whales migrate north to give birth, swimming past Oscar on Main, much to the delight of our guests.
For a closer look, let the friendly staff at Oscar on Main organise a whale watching cruise, with pick up and drop off direct from your Main Beach holiday apartment to the boat. It’s fun to watch these beautiful creatures play. Humpback whales are friendly, curious creatures that frequently perform spectacular serial leaps, breaching and slapping the water. They also sing long, complex songs to each other.
Enjoy a relaxing holiday in our beautifully kept holiday apartments, all with uninterrupted ocean views. With luck you'll see one of the many whales pass by.
