Remote Fraser Island and Whale Experience

1. Remote Fraser Island and Whale Experience

On this full-day excursion, you’ll cruise the Great Sandy Strait along the pristine shores of Fraser Island. The fast and comfortable 12 meter catamaran is perfect for a small number of passengers ensuring an intimate, personalized tour. Spot dolphins, turtles, dugongs, birds and dingoes as you enjoy a light morning tea. An amphibious watercraft will take you to the western side of World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, driving right onto the beach to ensure you remain dry and comfortable. Enjoy the crystal clear waters of Wathumba Creek during a range of activities including snorkeling with turtles, kayaking, tubing, beach walks or a sand dune climb. Following a delicious buffet lunch served on the boat, the tour continues to Awinya or Bowarrady Creek. Enjoy the diverse natural surroundings and a variety of water activities. Be on the look out for Humpback whales and experience the thrill of getting up close and personal with these majestic creatures as they frolic in the calm clear waters off Fraser Island.  Marvel at their sheer athleticism as they explode out of the water in a spectacular breach or be awestruck as you come face to face as they spy hop right next to the boat.  Be one of the few and very fortunate to experience an intimate, immersive whale experience that allows you to get closer to these creatures than ever before as you swim with them in their own natural environment (subject to conditions). The friendly and experienced staff will provide expert commentary throughout the tour as well as serving afternoon tea. The tour concludes with a relaxing cruise back to the Hervey Bay Marina.

From Hervey Bay: Fraser Island Beach and Aussie BBQ Cruise

2. From Hervey Bay: Fraser Island Beach and Aussie BBQ Cruise

This 5 hour tour departs from your Hervey Bay accommodation. You will depart the marina, and travel to Fraser Island, across beautiful blue, clear water. Look out for Australian wildlife including dolphins, turtles and whales on the way. A sumptuous morning tea will be served on the journey over. You will then arrive at Fraser Island's western beach and/or Pelican Banks, depending on the season and weather. Beaches on the western side of Fraser Island are far more remote and untouched. Pelican Bank is a sandbank on the Great Sandy Strait which is utter perfection due to the clear water. Swim, kayak, fish, walk, play and explore this beautiful location. An Aussie BBQ lunch will be provided as you cruise back from Fraser Island. This includes locally-sourced ingredients such as quality rib fillet steaks, gourmet sausages, fresh Hervey Bay prawns, 3 delicious and nutritious salads, and bread. Cold drinks will be available for purchase at the licensed affordable bar.

Such a great experience, you can do your own thing they don't expect you to all participate in group activities but you are provided all equipment to do so if you wish. Kayaking, snorkelling, cricket and tubing was available with plenty for everyone. Brilliant BBQ afterwards was the perfect way to end the trip. Highly highly recommended. Thank you to the staff, you made us feel welcome

Bus picked us up right on time, great communication on boat. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Able to swim to beach from boat if you wanted to. Kayaking , swimming, fishing and tube ride. BBQLunch was very good, better than what I expected. Just enough time on island.

Great day out, we were well looked after from pick up to drop off. I am coeliac and they catered for me with no drama at all. Would definitely do this trip again if we come back to Hervey Bay, Highly Recommend
