Fraser Island Sailing Adventure Cruise and Dolphin Watching from Hervey Bay
From USD 62.08
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Experience the marine life of the Great Sandy Strait and Fraser Island on a half-day dolphin watching tour from Hervey Bay. Ride aboard a smaller boat that allows for a more personalized experience as you look for two dolphin species, sea turtles and other animals. Includes time for boom-netting and a swim at Fraser Island (in warmer months), and morning tea served on board.
What to Expect
After morning pickup at your hotel in Hervey Bay, meet your boat at Great Sandy Straits Marina.

Nibble a light morning tea served on board as your captain steers the boat into the waters of Great Sandy Strait, which are home to two species of dolphins — bottlenose dolphins and Australian humpback dolphins — along with dugongs and sea turtles. Your guide shares commentary about the marine life of the region and other fascinating facts as you look for wildlife.

Have the opportunity to swim off the west coast of Fraser Island at the pristine Pelican Banks, or at the beaches of Fraser Island itself. If you're feeling adventurous, you can ride in the boom net on the boat.

If conditions allow, your captain may raise the sails on the 38-foot (11.5-meter) boat so that you can experience the vessel under sail power. The boat is a smaller sized vessel, making for a more intimate experience. Wi-Fi is available on-board.

At the end of four hours, your tour ends with return to your starting point in Hervey Bay.

Please note that dolphins are spotted on 95% of the tours, however they are wild animals and sightings are unpredictable.
