Enjoy an unforgettable experience with Pacific Whale Foundation on the only whalewatch based on 30 years of whale research in Hervey Bay. Aboard the small group (38 passengers maximum) vessel, Ocean Defender, with forward facing seats, plenty of room and shade, you’ll have a panoramic water-level “whale’s eye” view of all of the action from the humpback whales that migrate here every year to mate and give birth. From mothers and calves interacting to males competing for females, the certified Marine Naturalists will provide expert commentary and interpretation of the various behaviors exhibited throughout your approximately 3 hour adventure. You can even interact with the onboard whale researcher who’s there to record imprtant data on the sightings, or listen to live whale songs on the underwater hyrdophone. It’s an experience unlike any other. Highlights including an onboard Junior Naturalist Programme and activity booklet for children and a free full colour whalewatch guide
