Captained and crewed by our experienced team with many years of local whale watch experience you're in for a great day.

Scan the seas for a flash or a splash, signalling the start of your awe-inspiring experience.

Watch the gentle giants of the sea spy-hop, tail slap and breach. Hold your breath while courting adults ‘boat’ around the vessel playing hide and seek as they are attracted to the Amaroos bright colours.

Experience an up close and personal mugging as they move in to watch you, watching them. You won’t miss a minute of the action as they lurch from the waves before your eyes. A 40-tonne migrating humpback whale just metres away from you is breathtaking!

Whale watching from Hervey Bay is second to none, it truly is like no other place. Experience whale watching at its best from the whale watching capitol of world.
