Weather and Sea Conditions

The team at Hervey Bay Whale Watch have been operating in the area for over thirty years and so, are very familiar with the conditions and enjoyment levels of their guests. Quick Cat 2 will not depart the harbour if conditions are dangerous, with guests advised of adverse conditions prior to departure time.  Expectations differ from person to person with some relatively unaffected by rough conditions, despite this, we are more than happy to rebook your cruise for a calmer day if you feel uneasy about the weather. If the day is too rough to be enjoyable, we will advise you as soon as possible of the cruise cancellation with the choice of a refund or to rebook.


While it is extremely rare to not sight any whales onboard our cruises, it can occasionally happen very early or late in the season. To largely avoid this happening, we modify our cruise start and finish dates each year to best align with whale watching projections, thereby minimising possible disappointment!

Hervey Bay Whale Watch have always guaranteed whale sightings, meaning if you have joined us for our whale watch cruise and we haven’t sighted whales, your ticket is valid for any of our other whale watch cruises until Humpback whales are sighted! (Subject to availability)

Hervey Bay Whale Watch has always maintained this policy, with one guest waiting 15 years to redeem their ticket! 


  • Hervey Bay Whale Watch reserve the right to substitute another vessel at any time.
  • Cruise may be cancelled or substituted due to weather or tide conditions or if viable passenger numbers are not reached and length of tour may vary slightly due to conditions or distance travelled.
  • Please note due to COVID-19 reducing our capacity that this cruise may not go via Kingfisher Bay if the numbers aren't viable. We will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible and if cancelled the lunch portion of your ticket ($35pp) will be refunded. Your whale experience will not be interrupted by this.
  • This package can only be booked from the 17th of July - 16th of October.
