The whale watching seasons are expanding every year on the Gold Coast.
There are simply more whales travelling up and down the East Coast of Australia than any time in recent history.
Once the whales round Byron Bay the Eastern most point in Australia they love to bask in the warm clear water of the Gold Coast and beyond.
When you travel through the beautiful Broadwater and out the Gold Coast Seaway the shore slowly gets smaller and smaller.
You pass the smaller boaties, fishermen, kyakers and we dodge the surfers crossing the Seaway for their own peice of paradise.
Some days are simply dreamlike with the beautiful clean Pacific Ocean and the encounter of a lifetime ahead.
It is not just whales you will see, schools of mullet, birds, sea turtles, dolphins and possibly even a dugong.
The shallow esturary of the Nerang River acts as a nursery for the region. This image is as you pass Wavebreak Island a popular relaxation destination on an empty island in the middle of the Broadwater.
South Stradbroke Island seems to stretch forever (check the photo at the top) but it fact joins up with North Stradbroke Island and on clear days you can see Morton Island to the north.
Is this the Gold Coast's best kept secret?
The Seaway is home to over 450 documented sea creatures, being built to stabilise the Southport bar is a very safe entry point for smaller vessels.
These waters are pristine, as the tradewinds generally blow clean water from up the East Coast of Australia.
