***** Extended Morning Whale Watch

"This cruise was seriously one of the best days of my life! The crew were excellent, very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was great. The boat was well set out so that you could view the whales from any area of the boat. Low customer numbers meant you weren’t standing two people deep along the railing at any one time. The boat was accessible for all ages. And the whales were stunning! So playful and curious and came right up to the boat. They loved checking us out as much as we were entertained by them. Highly recommend and I would do it again in a heartbeat!" Google Review: Brianna Lang, New Zealand, September 2023

***** Afternoon + Sunset Whale Watch

"WOW!! The sunset whale cruise was perfect! Our captain was upfront and honest and offered anyone to opt out due to rough conditions but I’m so glad we opted in and went along for the ride because it was the most amazing experience! We first spotted a mother and her calf before over 20 other sightings of these playful beasts. Massive shout out to the crew on board for their attentiveness to everyone and their amazing service. What a credit to the company they all are. Thanks again to our captain for a great day out. Highly recommend this tour company 10/10!" Google review: Kristy Lewis, August 2023

Whale watching with Whalesong Cruises in Hervey Bay will leave you with cherished memories to last a lifetime.

An ultimate bucket list experience is to watch breaching, pec/tail slapping, spy-hopping, majestic Humpback whales in their natural environment; sometimes so close to the boat you could almost touch them. This experience in Hervey Bay's calm waters is like no other and on board Whalesong, you can relax and enjoy the entire experience whilst the friendly, experienced and COVID-19 safety trained crew look after you and your friends and family's needs.

Choose between our Extended Morning (5 hour cruise) or our Afternoon + Sunset (4 hour cruise) Whale Watching experiences.  There's no better cruise than the other nor best time of day for watching whales - they are wild animals and will behave on their terms.  You pick the time of day that best suits your plans.  Also, there's no need to worry about what to eat; Whalesong Cruises is the only half day Whale Watch boat tour in Hervey Bay to include meals, representing excellent value for money.

In addition to an incredible experience observing humpback whales in their natural environment, you'll enjoy a real time commentary about all local marine mammals (humpback whales, dolphins, dugongs, sharks, turtles and bird life) as well as some local history of K'gari (Fraser Island) and the traditional land owners, the Butchulla people.  With our multilingual crew, this live commentary can all be translated directly to you in French, German, Italian, Portugese or Spanish. 

Above all, the entire Whalesong team is dedicated to exceptional customer service, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy the authentic, memorable, bucket-list experience unfolding in front of your eyes.

- Lunch (fresh roasted chicken, ham, 3 x freshly made salads and fresh bread)

Whalesong's Afternoon + Sunset Cruise...  (2pm-6pm)
