Calypso Sunset cruises are the perfect way to catch up with friends and family or even start your night out in style, cruise the protected Bay offering calm conditions, wildlife and the postcard worthy sunsets our bay is known for.
Calypso is a 10 meter purpose built landing barge that operates straight off the beautiful foreshore here in Hervey Bay. Due to it's large fold down door at the bow, Calypso has the ability to conveniently pick up and drop off guests directly to the beach & is the only vessel currently offering this unique experience along Hervey Bays foreshore.
To finish off the day, our unique slow-paced BYO Sunset cruise. Music on, drinks cold and time to unwind while soaking it all in. Being that we are the only vessel to service Hervey bay directly from the foreshore we aim to show you just how amazing the scenery can be with the added novelty of disembarking close to popular dining venues to continue your night.

Weather & Sea Conditions
The team at Hervey Bay Whale Watch have been doing this for a long time and know the bay and the conditions well.
We will never take Calypso out if conditions are dangerous and we will advise you of the expected conditions before departure. Different people have different expectations, some people aren’t bothered by rough days, but we want you to enjoy your experience with us so if it’s a rough day we are happy to re book your cruise for a calmer day.
If the day is too rough to be enjoyable, we will advise you as soon as possible that the cruise will be cancelled. You have the choice of a refund or to book for another cruise.
