Overview
Between July and November, humpback whales break their long migration from Antarctica in Hervey Bay, making the area one of the world’s top whale-watching spots. This boat tour, capped at just 20 travelers, offers guaranteed sightings between August and mid-October, with a refund or replacement ticket in the unlikely event you don’t see a whale. Morning tea and lunch, as well as snorkeling gear and wetsuits, are provided.

This i the Third trip I have done with Hervey Bay Dive Centre and enjoy there relaxed but professional manner. They make it fun to be out in the Great Sand Straits. The whale watching was awesome and swimming near the whales was exciting too. The whales are not trained so it doesnt always work out Lunch was good and the boat was comfortable. .

Great day, comfortable boat, nice size group (not too big), allowing everyone to see action in water. didn't get to swim because all the pods we saw were mother and calves, but didn't spoil day. Still got in water for a swim close to Fraser Island. Captain and crew very knowledgeable and happy to have a chat and share their local knowledge (and jokes).

This tour was absolutely amazing. We loved being on a smaller boat since the experience feels more personal. We had a lovely lunch and were being looked after as good as it gets. We would recommend this tour to everybody.

Wow what a day! Although the whales didn’t want to swim with us, we still had the best experience with this company 😍. Skipper Ed brought us as close as possible and it was just amazing seeing these incredible animals up close. We loved that the group was not too big and the boat was big enough for us all. Best of all was the approval of flying with the drone. Videos are still uploading, so here are some picture we took. Couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you so much for the amazing day!
