Whale Watching

“Hervey Bay is an absolutely globally unique location for Humpback Whales - geographically there is no place like Hervey Bay on any other Humpback migratory path anywhere in the world”
– Dr Wally Franklin Whale researcher in Hervey Bay for 25 years and founder of the Oceania Project.

Join Australia's original Whale Watch operators for an experience of a life time with magnificent Humpback Whales in the best Whale Watching location in Australia, Hervey Bay!

Rest assured you will be travelling in very capable hands cruising with the longest running and first company to commence whale watching in Hervey Bay waters, offering the best value whale tours on the Fraser Coast.

Whale Watching in Hervey Bay's waters are protected by World Heritage listed Fraser Island which makes "Platypus Bay" a great place for Humpbacks to stay and play.

Our purpose built vessel 'Quick cat II' will get you up close and personal with the Humpback Whales offering an experience you won't forget. Be amazed when a 40 tonne wild animal breaks the surface to put on a show for the guests on board. You'll experience breaches, spy hops, fin slaps, amazing muggings of the boat and much more that will make you fall in love with these beautiful gentle giants!

Hervey Bay Whale Watch offer two half day Whale Watching Cruises aboard Quick Cat II, departing daily from the Great Sandy Straits Marina during Whale Season (15th July - 15th October).

The team at Hervey Bay Whale Watch would love to have you as a guest on board Quick Cat II to show you our love and passion for Humpback Whales and this little slice of paradise we call home, we hope to see you #holidayhere this Whale Season!
