What to Expect

Come face to face with Hervey Bays local whales on this epic whale watching tour! Enjoy a tranquil cruise through the Great Sandy Strait, along the remote pristine western side of World Heritage listed Fraser Island to Australia’s ultimate humpback whale playground.

Standing on the specially designed viewing platform on the boat, you'll be taken right to the water’s edge. Come face-to-face with giant whales and get ready for an up close and personal interaction. You may even get your feet wet! Now that’s close encounters of a different kind!

You'll also be able to delve beneath the surface and check out the whales from the underwater viewing rooms. See the whales in their natural environment and watch them swim and play.

There is also a hydrophone equipped to hear the whales sing onboard!

Learn about these majestic mammals and other marine creatures including dolphins, turtles, dugongs, sharks and seabirds. You'll also gain knowledge on Fraser Island and surrounds. 

Research and conservation is another aspect of your tours with expert commentary from a passionate and dedicated crew. There will be multilingual staff aboard and whale information in 6 languages.

Onboard you can enjoy free Wi-Fi, a kids area with toys, colouring in and DVDs and a licenced bar. Throughout your journey, you can enjoy tea/coffee with biscuits and cake and antipasto platter on the way home.
