4Hr Humpback Whale Watching Encounter

4.5 based on all time ratings

Get on board with this amazing whale watching tour and prepare for an enchanting encounter with the ocean's most majestic giants. Where else would you rather be to meet these magnificent creatures than in Australia's ultimate whale hotspot – Hervey Bay?

As you set sail from the harbour,  brace yourself for an unforgettable cruise. You will enjoy a peaceful journey along the Great Sandy Strait, past the remote pristine western side of World Heritage listed K'gari (formerly Fraser Island) to meet the whales. 

Combining speed and luxury, the vessel ensures that you reach the whale-watching grounds sooner so you can maximise your time with these incredible creatures. You will make a pitstop at Moon Point, and cruise along the coastline of Fraser Island to reach Platypus Bay.

Keep an eye out for the majestic Humpbacks, turtles, dugongs, Southern Right whales and Minke whales that frequent these waters here. 

In the crystal-clear waters off K’gari, look out for those Humpback whales, and get ready for a thrill like no other as you finally spot one of these gentle giants. With the vessel’s specially designed platform that takes you right to the water’s edge, you will get the best possible views of these magnificent creatures. Be prepared to see the inquisitive whales coming closer to the vessel too – that’s their version of people watching!

Step down into the air-conditioned underwater viewing deck for the best vantage point to experience marine life beneath the surface. Imagine getting to experience the enchanting underwater world without getting wet! 

The tour gets even better when the experienced crew provides you with insights into the ecological significance and history of Fraser Island and its surrounding area.  

Can’t you feel the anticipation building inside you? Smooth cruise, beauty all around, playful antics of the gentle giants so close to you – don’t let this experience pass you by
