We saw so many whales! A real bucket list experience. The smaller boat and numbers made the experience more personal and we never struggled to see the action.

Whale watching is such an amazing experience. The small boat gives you a better view of them especially when they come close. Being able to get in the water with the whales is an extra special experience

Such a memorable day in so many ways. Ed, our captain, did a terrific job of finding the whales whilst Grant discussed what we were seeing. Although it was a rather blustery day we still saw plenty of whales. Definitely a must do when visiting Hervey Bay!

An amazing experience, saw lots of whales and got to swim while they were around the boat. Great crew, very friendly and knowledgeable although dad jokes need work 🤣 Thoroughly recommend this company as the passenger numbers are kept low to give you a much better experience. 10/10. Thanks for a fabulous day.
