    Is Father's Day during whale watching season?

    Whales migrate along the east and west coasts of Australia until about November each year. With Father's Day being at the beginning of September, there's plenty of time to gift a Father's Day cruise and book a day to go during the season.

    Do cruises include lunch?

    While each cruise is operated at a different time of day for a different amount of time, some of them do include a meal and/or snacks.
