7hr Whale Watching Cruise & K’Gari Lunch

Join this full day tour aboard the luxury catamaran Quick Cat II, for an exhilarating whale watching cruise, followed by a lunch at Kingfisher Bay Resort on K’Gari (Fraser Island). This is the perfect tour to enjoy the best of both worlds – a thrilling whale watching tour & the opportunity to explore the wonders of K’Gari. 


Start your day with a light breakfast and morning tea as you explore the Great Sandy Straits and Platypus Bay – the ultimate playground of the migrating Humpback Whales. Watch the whales put their acrobatic skills on display! We're talking spy hops, breaches, tail whips and a whole lot more! And while you’re at it, keep those peepers open for dolphins, turtles, and graceful seabirds. 


Got burning questions about the gentle sea giants? Ask away! Your guides are always ready to answer all your burning questions! After an unforgettable whale watching experience, you'll reach the renowned Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island. Feast on a delicious lunch at the Sand Bar & Bistro while taking in the island's stunning natural beauty. 


Take this time to recharge and soak up the tranquil atmosphere. You have complete access to the resort's amenities. Lounge by the pool, explore the walking trails, or try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking. (Kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, segways etc are optional extras – to be purchased additionally)


As the day draws to a close, treat yourself to the serene views from the Sunset Bar at The Jetty. And to wrap things up, choose your preferred return time: hop on the 2:30pm or 5:00pm resort barge back to the mainland. The Kingfisher Bay Resort bus will be there to take you, either to the Great Sandy Straits Marina or directly to your accommodation.
