Half Day Extended Morning Cruise 8am to 1pm
Half Day Afternoon + Sunset Cruise 2pm to 6pm
Choose between the Extended Morning (5 hour cruise) or Afternoon + Sunset (4 - 4.5 hour cruise) Whale Watching experiences.
There's no better cruise than the other nor best time of day for watching whales - they are wild animals and will behave on their terms. Also, there's no need to worry about what to eat as these cruises are the only half day Whale Watch tours in Hervey Bay to include meals (lunch or dinner) representing excellent value for money.
In addition to an incredible experience observing Humpback Whales in their natural environment, you'll enjoy a real time commentary about all local marine mammals (humpback whales, dolphins, dugongs, sharks, turtles and bird life) as well as some local history about K'gari (Fraser Island) and the traditional land owners, the Butchulla people.
The Morning Whale Watch will get you out on the Bay and interacting with the whales before the other boats, but still back in time to be able to make use of your afternoon. Of all the morning cruises, Whalesong spends the longest at the whales. In addition, enjoy unlimited hot drinks, water, morning tea (fresh fruit platter and cake selection), lunch (cold roast chicken, ham, greek salad, green salad, potato salad and fresh bread) whilst cruising back to the marina.
The Afternoon Cruise is great if you want to optimise your time in Hervey Bay as it enables you to fit in a whale watch cruise on the same day you arrive as this is the last full-service boat (in other words, includes food and courtesy hotel transfers) to leave in the afternoon. Enjoy unlimited hot drinks, afternoon tea grazing platter (cheeses, cured meats, crackers, vege sticks and dips) whilst watching the whales. During the cruise back to the marina, we enjoy a dinner (roast chicken, ham, greek salad, green salad, potato salad and fresh bread) whilst taking in a stunning sunset Hervey Bay is known for.
Above all, the entire Whalesong team is dedicated to exceptional customer service, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy the authentic, memorable, bucket-list experience unfolding in front of your eyes.

"The jet ski tour was a fantastic day! It is a superb showcase of the marine park and the Hervey Bay waterways. Stuart is an extremely professional guide and ensured every aspect of the trip was a great experience. We all loved it and will be back again."
"I just wanted to let you know I had a great time on the Island. Thank you so much for arranging it for me. Having everything organised for me was definitely the best way to go. I would not have been able to organise all that by myself."
