The large sheltered bay offers the whales a perfect rest area and playground on their long journey from Antarctic waters to their warm tropical calving grounds.
On their return south, the whales again stop to rest and frolic, giving visitors on board whale watching vessels the added bonus of seeing the calves. They are usually very inquisitive of their surroundings, and like to get close to eye the boats, and those happy earthlings on board.
Please remember that whale watching is SEASONAL. You can still browse the fabulous whale watching options available and get ready for the upcoming year. Whale Watching from Hervey Bay will commence again from July until November in most regions. Contact us to confirm details.
