Hervey Bay

Hervey Bay is the whale watching capital of the world!

What makes Hervey Bay a unique place for this? Each year between August and November (guaranteed) on their migration south, the majestic humpback whales get “caught” by Fraser Island and enter the waters of Hervey Bay, breaking away from their migration zone.

For half day tours, we recommend:

  • Tasman Venture (family-friendly, offers underwater viewing and a souvenir DVD)
  • Whalesong (suitable for anyone, includes a buffet lunch on the morning cruise, and water-level viewing for great photos)
  • Quick Cat II (offers swimming with the whales, and the opportunity to stay for lunch on Fraser Island)
  • The Boat Club (lowest price, ideal for families as children cruise for free)

If you have a whole day to watch whales, we recommend:
