Full description
Travel on board a comfortable, multi-award-winning sailing vessel to the heart of the playground of the humpback whales.

The owner and skipper Peter Lynch brings his knowledge, experience and passion to each whale-watch encounter, providing expert commentary as he shows you the magnificent humpback whales in their natural environment.

On this 1-day whale-watch encounter you’ll cruise the calm waters of Hervey Bay to observe the inquisitive and active humpback whales and see activities such as tail-slapping, breaching, pectoral slapping or spy-hopping.

If the conditions are right, you may be able to try out the exclusive in-water platform for an immersive experience and a once-in-a lifetime encounter with a humpback whale.
