Discover majestic whales and other marine wildlife as you cruise Hervey Bay aboard The Spirit, featuring 5 viewing decks for uninterrupted views. While you drift through their natural habitat, learn about the travel patterns of humpbacks and hear them as they communicate beneath the waves.
Board a 75-foot (24-m) power catamaran and speed out to the best viewing spots at 25 mph (40 km/h). Your quick ride means you get to spend more time with the whales and less time chugging out to their habitat. . Along the way, move to the observation deck for expansive views of Hervey Bay and The Great Strait.
Watch for telltale signs of majestic humpbacks as you keep your eyes peeled for white columns of sea spray from their blowholes. Your captain maintains a respectful distance, but these charming creatures occasionally like to swim right next to the vessel. When they do, snap a few pictures and then head down to the underwater viewing area to spy on the whales in their playground.
Learn more about these stunning creatures and listen to their calls first-hand through hydrophones—devices that allow you to hear their mesmerizing vocalization. Listen as their songs swirl around the boat and then fade away as they move on to new depths.
