What you need to know

Join this half-day afternoon Hervey Bay whale watching tour for an unforgettable encounter with majestic humpback whales on the Fraser Coast. Cruising aboard the Quick Cat II, this purpose-built whale watching vessel offers 5 viewing decks across 3 levels so you can enjoy unobstructed views on the spacious boat as the whales playfully swim around the vessel.

The Hervey Bay whale watching season runs from July to October and is an ideal location to watch Humpback Whales migrating past the Fraser Coast with their pod numbers increasing every year. The fun and informative cruise also include a scenic tour past Fraser Island where you’ll see the pristine beaches and coloured sand cliffs as you cruise out to sea in search of Humpback Whales.
