The half-day whale watch encounters offered by Tasman Venture depart twice daily from the Hervey Bay Marina.
Passengers enjoy a relaxing journey through the Great Sandy Strait to Australia’s ultimate humpback whale playground, which is located on the remote western side of World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.
Our speedy and elegant catamaran will get you to the whale-watching areas as quickly as possible. This means more time with the whales, making for an amazing tour in the world’s whale-watching capital.
Keep an eye out for humpback whales and get up up and personal with these gorgeous creatures as they frolic in the calm, clear waters off Fraser Island. From our purpose-built vessel’s wide decks, including our famous sea level viewing platform and our underwater viewing windows, you can get up up and personal with these gentle giants.
The whales congregate at Hervey Bay to rest and play. Our specially designed yacht has huge decks, including our famed water level viewing platform, which allows you to see these gentle giants of the sea without being impeded.
