Whale Watching Cruise

Tonnes of Humpback holiday fun...


From $169

Book Now

In our neck of the woods the Humpbacks aren't just passing through on their way to their breeding grounds each August through October - they're actually taking time out in the pristine waters off Fraser Island to socialise, have some fun, learn some essential lifeskills and nuture their young.

For whale watchers it really is a question of who is watching whom on these incredible days out... our guests are encouraged to wave their arms, stamp their feet and make a bit of noise - the whales love it.

Their natural curiosity takes over and they glide up to the boats to have a look at what the 'silly' humans are doing now - in return, the Humpbacks put on an almighty show - slapping their tails, waving their pec fins and breaching into the air, coming down with a great splash.

The team on Quick Cat II provide a spectacular day out on the World Heritage waters, as you witness these wondrous creatures up close. Be sure to take a photo or video to capture the experience.
