Half Day Whale Watching Tour
Tasman Venture’s half-day whale watch encounters depart twice daily from the Hervey Bay Marina.
Passengers enjoy a tranquil cruise through the Great Sandy Strait, along the remote pristine western side of World Heritage listed Fraser Island to Australia’s ultimate humpback whale playground.
Up Close and Personal with Humpback Whales
Stand on our specially designed platform which will take you to the water’s edge. You’ll be face-to-face when a giant whale spy hops for an up close and personal interaction, you may even get your feet wet! Now that’s close encounters of a different kind!
Learn About The Humpback Whales
Learn about these majestic mammals and other marine creatures including dolphins, turtles, dugongs, sharks and sea birds. You will also gain knowledge on Fraser Island (K’gari) and surrounding areas.
Research and conservation is another aspect of our tours with expert commentary from our passionate and dedicated crew.
Ultimate Luxury Vessel
Our fast and luxurious catamaran enables you to travel to the whale watching grounds in the fastest possible time. This means more time with the whales for an unforgettable tour in the whale watch capital of the world. Hervey Bay is where the whales come to stay and play.
Our specifically designed vessel has large decks, including our famous water level viewing platform, offering unobstructed whale watching of these gentle giants of the sea.
