Hervey Bay is world renowned as one of the best whale watching destinations on the planet, and for good reason. The sheltered bay between Hervey Bay and Fraser Island provides the perfect rest stop for the humpback whales on their annual migration. Here is where the whales are most relaxed and playful, and that makes for exceptional whale encounters.
Now you can enter the whales realm and experience these majestic giants up close and personal.
Hervey Bay Dive Centres whale swim* and watch tour departs Hervey Bay daily on a high-speed 40ft power cat.
