Whale Watching on Moreton Bay

For the last 2 years we have taken a trip to see the whales out on Moreton Bay. We drive to Redcliffe and catch the "Eye Spy" boat out for the day. It's an all day thing from 10am to 3pm and morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch in included. We saw quite a few whales but I am yet to see a whale breaching out of the water. We did however witness a mother feeding her baby. The mother is vertical in the water with her head down towards the ocean floor and her tale above the water and the baby is the opposite, so head up towards the sky. We watched this whales tale above the water for about 20 is quite rare to see it and it was very comfortable getting close to our boat. We had a great day out and as it's a long day got the kids to bring some activities to keep them occupied.
