Customised & Exclusive Whale Watching Experiences, QLD

Saturday, 01 July 2023

Hervey Bay is known as the Whale Watching Capital of Australia, and for good reason. Between the months of July and October, Hervey Bay is home to thousands of humpback whales and calves seeking a resting place before continuing their migration to Antarctica. Here, in the warm, calm waters of the Bay, whale mothers teach their young calves the skills necessary for survival and gather their strength for the rest of the journey. In this blog, The Spirit of Hervey Bay informs readers about their most popular Whale watching in Fraser Island and Hervey Bay tour. 

Our Boat 

The Spirit is a luxury boat that moves gracefully across the water, getting you to the whales quickly so you can observe them at leisure. The boat is designed for comfort and features 6 different viewing decks spread out over 6 levels. Customers can move around the boat freely and watch the whales in their habitat from high above the water, or right at the water line with our specially designed underwater viewing windows. Whats more we offer free return ticket on another cruise if no whales are sighted on your tour. 

Half Day Whale Watching Hervey Bay

Our half day whale watching in Hervey Bay morning cruise (8.30 am to 1.00 pm) is a 4.5 hour journey into the Bay and is open to children of all ages. The cruise includes complimentary morning tea, free wifi connections and a detailed commentary on whales and the famous sights and sounds of K’gari (Fraser) Island. Our boat travels at a high speed of 22 knots, which means you’ll reach the whales quicker than most other tours. With over 30 years of experience sighting whales, you are guaranteed to spot whales and even use a hydrophone to hear these large mammals communicate with one another. The Spirit is a fully air-conditioned boat with large underwater viewing windows and is known for its stability and spaciousness.
