Hervey Bay Attractions
Whale Watching
Hervey Bay is the Humpback whales’ arena to showcase their acrobatics that include fluke dives, tail flaps and the almighty breach. The most acrobatic of the whale species, the adult Humpbacks are known to breach 20-30 times within 5 minutes. 
Sunset Cruises
The sun setting over crystal clear waters of Hervey Bay showcase myriad colours, set against the backdrop of beautiful pink skies. Sit back & enjoy the silence and beautiful views of this tropical paradise bathed in shades of amber and gold.  
Dolphin Watching
Witnessing dolphins in their natural habitat is one of nature’s most beautiful sights. With their graceful and playful antics in the water, they interact with humans and are regarded as one of the most intelligent animals on the planet. 
The Great Sandy Strait
A 70km Australian sand estuary that separates Fraser Island from the mainland, the Great Sandy Strait has a variety of landscapes from wetlands to white sandy beaches to crystal clear waters, all home to a diverse range of wildlife. 

Whale Watching Cruises departing Hervey Bay

Whale watching in Hervey Bay is an extremely popular attraction, both for locals and tourists. During the whale watching season in Hervey Bay between July and November, hordes of people head out on whale watching tours to catch the playful Humpback whales in action.

Watching whales in their natural habitat is a pleasing thing for the mind. Watching one the largest mammals on Earth breaching and tail slapping shows the raw power of these gentle giants. The best time to go on a whale watching cruise in Hervey Bay is from end of June to the end of November.

The whale song might seem baleful and sad to us, but it is in fact a means of communication, most often a mating call, by the male whales of the pod. Only the males sing or vocalise and each song might last from ten to twenty minutes with varying amplitude and frequency. Some performances can be as long as a day!

Whales have no vocal cords and they sing by forcing air through their blow holes. The whale songs are mostly area specific – the North Atlantic Humpbacks sing the same song whereas the North Pacific Humpbacks have a different song.

There are numerous operators offering whale watching cruises and all vessels depart from the Urangan Boat Harbour, Hervey Bay. Most of the Hervey Bay whale watching vessels are purpose-built boats designed with viewing platforms, underwater viewing windows and sound systems to hear the whales sing. Educational videos are also screened on the way to the Hervey Bay Marine Park. Some operators offer half-day tours with beverages and snacks, while others offer full day tours that include lunch as well.

The Hervey Bay whales are used to the boats that come out to view them in action. They are inquisitive and swim right up beside the vessels giving guests a great up, close and personal experience – literally the experience of a lifetime! You may also be lucky enough to see some dolphins, turtles or maybe even dugongs!
