Hervey Bay is known as the whale watching capital in Australia.
There are numerous whale watching tours operating out of Hervey Bay in Queensland, Australia. Some are shorter and faster, some are longer and slower. One of the best is Freedom, taking guests out on a 58' catamaran to see humpback whales between mid-July to the third week in October. Expect an intimate moment with the whale. You just never know what you will see: mothers playing with their new-born calves, calves showing off their newly acquired skills, adults breaching and tail-slapping and skyhopping and waving a dorsal fin (surely at the delighted guests onboard). You can find out more about this outstanding tour (with an outstanding lunch). -
You can't really predict when the best whale watching will occur: a beautiful calm day might be much prettier but the whales might not be as active while a rough day might produce some amazing whale activity (and visa versa!). Most boats don't go out if the weather is truly fowl. If you can only go on a specific day, book in advance; if you are flexible and have more time in the area, book when you get there after checking the weather forecast.
