9Hr Remote K’Gari & Whale Watching Cruise

Discover the hidden and remote west coast of the World Heritage-Listed K’gari with Tasman Venture’s Remote Fraser Island and Whale Watching Tour. Expect an extraordinary itinerary filled with breathtaking wildlife encounters, thrilling water activities, fun amphibious rides, and scenic cruises!

Step on board the luxury 20m catamaran – from the marina you’ll cruise out of the harbour and navigate the crystal clear waters across the Great Sandy Straits. The fast and expansive catamaran is perfect for small groups and ensures an intimate, personalised tour. As you venture further north into Platypus Bay, keep your eyes peeled for dolphins, turtles, dugongs, and a variety of birdlife.

Explore the crystal-clear waters of the iconic Wathumba Creek, which transforms into a large ocean during high tide. Here, you’ll have ample opportunities to snorkel and discover the diverse marine life of the region.  From large breeding grounds of fish species to stingrays and turtles – there’s plenty to look for. You can also explore the pristine creeks through guided kayaking, or you could simply unwind on a pristine beach.

Awinya Creek in the hinterland of K’gari is also a nature haven with its lush mangroves and incredible flora and fauna. For those seeking more action, a wide range of water sports and activities await; or again, you can always relax, swim, or take a walk along the beaches. 

Arriving at Bowarrady Creek, you’ll stop at the coloured sands, from  where you can climb up the ancient sand dune. Follow the expert guides to the summit to enjoy breathtaking 360° views of K’gari and Platypus Bay.  

Morning tea, afternoon tea, and a delicious plated lunch is also included to ensure you are fueled up throughout the experience.

The excitement is far from over! Brace yourself for close encounters with the migrating Humpback Whales. Witness their awe-inspiring antics as they frolic in the waters off K’gari. 

Conclude your adventure with a relaxing cruise back to the Great Sandy Straits Marina. Courtesy bus transfers are available to your accommodation in Hervey Bay.
