Whale watching and Swim with the Whales - Hervey bay

Whales & Beaches Afternoon Tour:
See More, Do More, Have more fun!

If you are only going to do one tour in the Bay- this is it! Experience more of the World Heritage Wonders than any other day trip!


The only boat that offers whale watching, swim with the whales (if conditions permit) and a beach stop-over, all in a half day tour!

Our Whale’s & Beaches experience is on offer from 15th of July to 15th of October

(Please note: if unfavourable weather prevents access into certain areas for our tour, the skipper will adjust the itinerary as necessary).


Jump onboard our vessel ‘Wipeout’ for an exhilarating & scenic trip into Platypus Bay (Whale World Heritage Site) to experience the majestic Humpback Whales. Our 18-seater, 500 Hp Gemini adventure RIB with full sun protection roof, is the closest vessel to the water surface in the Bay, offering the perfect platform for a truly unique, up close and personal whale watching experience. After our time with the whales, we give you a taste of island-life, as we make a short stop-over on one of many, pristine beaches and sandbanks of the Northern Great Sandy Straits. As most of our time is spent with the whales, our beach time is roughly 30 minutes. Beach location varies depending on weather and our experienced crew will choose the best location on the day. The beach stop-over is not mandatory, so if the majority of guests on board would like to spend an extra 30 minutes with the whales, that’s ok with us! The beaches are however, the hidden gems of the K’gari West coast and will be sure to take your breath away with their beauty and isolation. 


Our tours are the perfect blend of tranquillity and exhilaration. The only way to see more, do more and have more fun is to jump onboard with us, on this epic adventure of discovery, sightseeing, relaxation, and unique photo opportunities. 99% of the time, our afternoon tour includes a stop-over on a small white sandy island for the perfect sunset shot across the water.
