Whale Watching

Whale watching with Hervey Bay Whale Watch means you will be cruising with the whale watch pioneers, Brian and Jill Perry who started the industry in Hervey Bay Fraser Coast, Queensland, Australia in 1987. Brian and Jill were the first people to offer whale watching from vessels in Australia and the South Pacific. This opened up a whole new experience that people sitting on headlands trying to get a glimpse of a whale in the distance only dreamed about.
