Itinerary

Half Day Whale Watch Tour Morning

Our half day morning whale watch cruise departs daily from the Hervey Bay Marina and provides passengers with a tranquil cruise through the Great Sandy Strait, past rugged untouched islands before travelling along the remote pristine western side of World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

View the abundant marine life swimming in the crystal clear waters of the bay before finding a pod of giant humpback whales at play in the protected waters.

Enjoy up close and personal encounters with these majestic creatures and marvel at their sheer size and athleticism as they spy hop and breach from the depths of the ocean.

The friendly, experienced staff will provide expert commentary throughout the tour as well as serving a morning tea and delicious antipasti platter.

The reef tour concludes with a relaxing cruise back to the Hervey Bay Marina in air-conditioned comfort.
