Our Boat

The Biggest, Brightest and Best in Hervey Bay!

Did you know the whales are attracted to bright colours, making the Spirit your best choice for fantastic whale encounters.  After their long journey the whales spend their time in Hervey Bay enjoying some well earned rest, relaxation, fun and frivolity and generally showing off to excite and delight our passengers!

Fast and luxurious, the Spirit gets you to the whale’s playground with minimal travelling time for maximum viewing pleasure with the whales. Extra comfortable with 6 viewing decks spread over 6 spacious levels, personal space is at a premium to move around at your leisure and ideal for taking those special holiday photos.

We have been offering whale watch cruises for over 28 years in Hervey Bay so we know what it takes to make your cruise with us an entertaining and adventurous one.  We are also the only boat that offers a money back guarantee on sightings (5/8 – 15/10) or another cruise free outside these dates.

Join our friendly crew for an adventure of a lifetime, the whales would love to meet you.

Deck 1- Underwater Viewing Rooms

Enter the magical underwater world of the humpback whale. Imagine coming eyeball to eyeball with a curious whale with only a glass window between you and them.  It's a spine tingling experience you will never forget.  Can you spot the whale?


Deck 2 - Lower level galley

Relax on our comfy cushioned seats.  Fully walk around deck with direct access to the whales, just pull the windows down and there the whales are.  We also serve morning/afternoon tea and buffet lunch here.  Featuring a licenced kiosk sit back and enjoy a cold drink or grab a souvenir to celebrate your day out with the whales.


Deck 3 - Waterline Viewing Platform

For those extra close up encounters with the whales step aboard our waterline platform.  The whales can be very curious and come right up to the boat.  Don't tell anyone, but we have had about 7 whales come close enough to touch our passengers. Maybe you could be the next lucky one!


Deck 4 - middle level

Just another extra comfy seating area for you to relax in after you have spent the day in the sea air, chasing whales around Platypus Bay.  Sometimes we even call this the "sleeping room" as passengers often grab a little shut eye on the return trip to the harbour.


Deck 5 - Up front Amphitheatre

Like the wind in your hair, then this spots for you. Up front, fresh air and you get to be the first to the whales, hehe!
