Whale Watching Cruise

Tonnes of Humpback holiday fun...


From $166

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 great 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 as what the 'silly' humans are doing now - in return the Humpbacks put on an almighty show - slapping their tails, shaking their pec fins and leaping into the air, only to splash down.

The team on Quick Cat II provide a fun, day out in World Heritage waters looking and you'll have the photos and video to prove it.

  • Shuttle transfers leave from the resort's reception to the jetty head.
  • Our hydrophone lets you listen to the live underwater sounds of the male Humpbacks.
  • Our underwater viewing camera beams images onto screens around the boat.
  • We provide expert commentary from the family who pioneered whale watching in Hervey Bay.
  • Wheel chair access, children's activity books and homemade morning tea are all part of the service.
  • Whale information available in English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
  • Advanced Eco Accreditation.
  • Close encounters guaranteed.
  • Once onboard, ask the Whale Cruise staff about purchasing an upgrade to a swim with the whales experience (and don't forget to take your swimmers and a towel).
