Everything was wonderful. We did the afternoon Whale watching and it was perfect. The bus driver came on time because we had booked direct we got a $10 voucher each to spend on a drink or two, The food was great given to us by really lovely friendly staff and sticking to the Covid rules but did it in such a friendly way. The boat itself was well equipped and not overcrowded, they didn't try and push souvenirs or photo's which i though was great. Everything about the experience was amazing and of course the whales were magical. Will definitely use Whalesong cruises again next time we go to Hervey Bay Whale watching and would definitely recommend to everyone.

Thanks for the high recommendation! So great to see you enjoyed your experience with us. We like to look after our guests, and the skipper and crew do a great job of it (as well as our friendly bus driver and office staff too!). We look forward to having you on board with us again sometime!

Everything about the whale watching cruise was fantastic. From the courtesy bus and driver being on time, to the friendly staff on board and Captain Doug with his extensive knowledge about the whales and where to find them, so we had the best day ever. The whales came up soooo close to the boat and stayed with us for hours. Complimentary water and hot drinks, morning tea of fresh fruit and a selection of cake. Lunch of ham, rotisserie chicken and salads with dressings and a bread roll of your choice. The staff did so well keeping to Covid-19 regulations serving everyone. We went on the 8am cruise which was cool and misty in the morning but sunshine most of the day.

WOW to the fabulous review! Thanks so much for taking the time to give us such great feedback and insight into the inclusions and exceptional (and safe) customer service experience Whalesong offers. It's certainly a team effort and they all do a wonderful job! Hope to see you again sometime.

My friend & I did the morning tour one day & sunset one the next. Had more luck on the morning tour but the captain didn't give up trying to get us some great experiences with whales. There was plenty of room to move around the boat (but this was during covid restrictions). Morning tour had whales all around us.

Thanks for reviewing us! That's great you got to experience both the morning and afternoon cruises. Each cruise on every day is completely different. That's the beauty of doing multiple trips...you'll get a great all round experience and see many different behaviours. Hope to see you again sometime!

Oh my! This is a time I will always remember! After sometime at sea, with many eyes scanning for those whale signs, a lot of us were beginning to feel that nothing was going to happen. THEN! in the distance 2 separate sightings were made close to Fraser Is and to our absolute amazement and with lots of waving and excitement we saw the most extraordinary creatures treating us to their company. In all 4 whales, who were very happy to spend nearly an hour with us; Spy Hopping, slapping the water and rolling over for us to see their white bellies. JUST WONDERFUL! Thank you to the crew of our boat, they extended a huge welcome and look after us superbly. The food was great & a warming Bundy & coke a treat. Fully recommend WHALESONG CRUISES
