Description
Experience the wonders of Hervey Bay with Freedom Whale Watch! Departing at 9:30am and returning not before 3:30pm each day from July to mid October, you will cruise the sheltered waters of Hervey Bay to the Great Sandy Marine Park. This area is renowned as the playground for visiting humpback whales as they migrate south to the Antarctic waters. Your knowledgeable skipper will provide expert commentary throughout the tour, educating and informing you about the unique aspects of whale watching in Platypus Bay, formed by Fraser Island and the mainland. Hervey Bay is world renown and recognised as the first accredited Whale Heritage Site by the World Cetacean Alliance. At Freedom Whale Watch, we are Eco Accredited and operate in an environmentally friendly way to ensure both the safety of our marine creatures as well as our guests. We encourage you to bring your reusable coffee cup for hot or cold drinks, and a water filling station with fresh filtered water is available all day. In the morning, you will be served hot scones with jam and cream, and profiteroles, as well as tea, coffee and filtered water. While watching whales play near the boat, you will be served a delicious plated lunch consisting of a warm bread roll, two cold meats, hot chicken wings, and three salads: coleslaw, potato salad and green salad. You may also spot dolphins, turtles and sea birds, with fabulous views of Fraser Island's western beaches providing a wonderful background to your tour. In the afternoon, you will be served fresh fruit platters and cheese platters on the return journey. Freedom III has three levels of viewing plus a water level platform for really close encounters, a hydrophone for hearing the whalesong, and low passenger numbers. Please note that child ages are 4-14 years, and under 4 are infants and as such free of charge. Please ring about bookings in mid October as the whales may be in short supply!
