Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My partner and I went on the half day tour! We weren’t expecting to see many whales however we saw so many and I couldn’t help my excited self! There was a pod of 9 whales at one point. We also saw some dolphins and a turtle. The food pack was yum and the crew was amazing at educating us on facts about the islands and the sea life. I would highly recommend doing a tour with the Salty crew!

WOW!!!!!! This is a Must Do if your heading to Hervey Bay. Everything is Fantastic About The Trip with K’gari Salty Safaris. The Boat is an Awesome Fast Craft, Super Clean and A Fun Ride out to the Deeper Waters…. Plenty Of Room to Move About. The Crew Made the Journey So Memorable and Fun… We Got to See So Many Pods of Whales on this Trip, And Get so Close them in their natural environment…. The Beach Stop on the Way Back for a Swim was an Added Bonus…. Do yourself a Favour and Book a Tour, it’s Really one of the Best Experiences you can have… 🏝️🤩🐋🐋

Outstanding day yesterday with Freedom 111 out of Hervey Bay. Our second trip with this company. Whales galore and what a show. Freedom111 crew were outstanding and the food terrific. An absolutely wonderful day out.
We will do it again.

We arranged a private group booking and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had a mix of adults, teenagers and children. Sam and Liberty made us feel so welcomed, sharing their extensive local knowledge and showing the magical western side of K’Gari (Fraser Island). Sam had a cheeky sense of humour appreciated by all. We would all highly recommend this trip to visitors or locals. Excellent value for money. Thank you all. When arranging the day, Tahni was very helpful and accomodating. Absolutely would do this again!

Salty Safari’s Western Wonders tour not only exceeded my expectations, but was hands down the best experience I have ever had out on the water! From start to finish, the crew had high energy, a sense of humour and stacks of local knowledge - its clear to see they love what they do. We were met with the thrill of cruising the ocean, weaving our way, taking in the beauty of K’Gari, yet made to feel so safe doing so. The tour was FANTASTIC, we never once felt rushed as we enjoyed snorkelling at Coffee rock with turtles, stopping for scenic pictures of Fraser Island, then hopping on to the Island to tick it off the bucket list and spending some time in the sun with activities provided (such as beach cricket, stand up paddle boarding, beach soccer/football, quoits etc!) We were blessed with a stop at Pelican Bank for lunch which just absolutely topped the day off, swimming in pristine blue waters.
I can’t recommend them enough! Thanks Sam & Liberty for an epic day! I will be back and bringing more friends/family to enjoy everything you have to offer.

Fun day out along the island, boat was comfortable and the snorkel with a turtle was a highlight. Kids loved puddling around in the creek and swimming from the beach. A great way to spend the first day of the new year!

We had such an enjoyable day. The boat trip was fast and fun. We saw turtles, sting rays and dolphins (and a pirate ship - but I think we fluked that one). The snorkelling was great. The crew were friendly, informative, and made sure everyone was comfortable, safe and enjoying the trip. We had a lovely lunch and beach games (boards, balls and games all supplied). GREAT DAY out exploring the Fraser Coast.
