Whale Watch

Say hello to the best whale watching in Australia in the calm waters of Hervey Bay, sheltered by Fraser Island. Every year from late July to early November majestic humpbacks turn this bay into their marine playground as they take a break on their 5000km migration from Antarctica to the tropics. Scientific studies confirm whales stay and play in Hervey Bay for up to 10 days, which makes whale-watching around here such a unique experience. Mums brings their babies close to the boats to introduce their offspring and then show off as they teach their calves to breach, spy-hop and fin slip. We guarantee you will be left breathless by this amazing spectacle.

A fleet of operators offer whale watching tours with vessels departing Hervey Bay Boat Harbour daily. The tours are hosted by professional crew providing an informative commentary. Courtesy pick ups available for most tours.
