Embark on an unforgettable whale watching cruise around Hervey Bay and witness these beautiful creatures breach, fin slap and spy-hop just metres away! Enjoy multi-level viewing throughout the entire vessel and expert marine commentary along the way, plus a morning/afternoon tea and lunch/dinner.
Experience the rare sight of humpback whales in their natural habitat as they migrate through Hervey Bay on their annual southern migration. Departing Urangan on a spacious, eco-friendly catamaran, enjoy multi level viewing throughout the entire vessel as well as live underwater footage displayed on TV screens so you can observe these majestic mammals from every angle. In this time, you might be lucky enough to see them jump out of the water, slap their tails and fins, or come right up to the boat for a sneaky look! Your expert crew will provide fascinating interpretive commentary which can be translated into German, French, Spanish or Italian, and will answer any questions you might have. The vessel is also equipped with a specialised underwater hydrophone that allows guests to listen to the whales 'sing' underwater. A tasty morning/afternoon tea and lunch/dinner of chicken, ham, salads and fresh rolls will be served throughout the journey.
This cruise runs with a minimum of eight and maximum of 70 people.
Being on the water, weather plays a large part in to whether this cruise will go ahead or not. Most cancellations occur due to strong winds or storms in the bay. Cancellation due to bad weather is entirely up to the skipper. The provider will let you know at least the day prior to your cruise if there's a possibility of cancelling. In this case they will give you the option of rescheduling.
Please wear comfortable, warm clothing and non-slip shoes. Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and a rain jacket are recommended. There is plenty of indoor seating to avoid the weather. The lower side decks also have a substantial overhang, so you can generally enjoy being outside without getting wet.
This experience departs from Great Sandy Straits Marina, Urangan.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
