Whale watching Season is here! Hervey Bay on the Fraser Coast every year anticipates this much loved time of the year when these huge mamals come and play on our door step! They are huge, but gentle giants and if you’ve never had the chance to witness the whales at play in the warm waters of Hervey Bay then you are truly missing out on one of life’s great pleasures! The season runs from early August to late October and viewing these huge mamals can be done from one of numerous Whale Watching Tour Boats, which vary in price to suit all budgets.
Personally I’d look for a provider that has a smaller vessel and that only caters for a small number of passengers to make the most of your moment with the whales. If you are fortunate enough to have a boat licence or have a friend or family member who does, I would go one step further and encourage you to hire a boat through a provider like Boab Boats or any other around the bay and take the family out yourself. Please remember your camera and unfortunately the first tour of the day normally 5am is honestly the best time to see them as that’s when they’re most active!! Have a fabulous time!
