Join Hervey Bay's only Sail whale watching vessel for this unforgettable full day whale watching tour. We are also the smallest in the fleet at just 10.5m in length. Most of the whales we see are 10 to 13 metres in length and 30 tonnes or more, that's over 5 times our weight. So when you see a whale from our vessel, you really see a whale!
During the season, Hervey Bay and Fraser Island in Queensland is thriving with the most magnificent and beautiful humpback whales. Every year the whales return to Hervey Bay's calm and crystal clear waters where they teach their newly born calf's to feed and communicate before swimming on south back to their feeding ground in Antarctica.
Occasionally we see the "heat runs" where the males chase a female at an extraordinary speed changing direction sometimes on a 0 degree axis so that they can mate with their chosen female. This is very exciting to watch and experience first hand!
You can rest assured that your day will be as informative as you like thanks to your skipper's vast experience, and you are welcome to ask as many questions as you like! The cruise is a full day with morning and afternoon tea and lunch provided. The vessel is also fully licensed serving wine, beer and pre-mixed spirits.
