An early start as we make our way north to Hervey Bay. This small town is widely regarded as the best destination to see humpback whales. They visit the bay from July to October to bask in the sheltered waters of Platypus Bay between Hervey Bay and Fraser Island making Hervey Bay whale watching the most engaging whale watching experience in Australia.

Hervey Bay is unique in terms of whale watching as the whales are not just passing through, they stop in the bay to relax, frolic and educate their calves. Scan the seas for a flash or a splash, signalling the start of your awe-inspiring experience.

Watch the gentle giants of the sea spy-hop, tail slap and breach. Hold your breath while courting adults’ ‘boat’ around the vessel playing hide and seek as they are attracted to the Amaroos bright colours.

Experience an up close and personal mugging as they move in to watch you, watching them. You won’t miss a minute of the action as they lurch from the waves before your eyes. A 40-tonne migrating humpback whale just meters away from you is breathtaking!

After the cruise you will have a chance to have lunch at that Boat Club (passengers receive 10% discount). Before we head home to Noosa.
