Full description

On this full-day excursion, you’ll cruise the Great Sandy Strait along the pristine shores of Fraser Island. Spot dolphins, turtles, dugongs, birds, and dingoes as you enjoy a light morning tea of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, slice, and biscuits. An amphibious watercraft will take you to the western side of World Heritage-listed Fraser Island, driving right onto the beach to ensure you remain dry and comfortable. Enjoy the crystal clear waters of Wathumba Creek on a range of activities including snorkeling with turtles, kayaking, tubing, beach walks, or a sand dune climb. Following a delicious lunch served on the boat, the tour continues to Awinya or Bowarrady Creek. Enjoy the diverse natural surroundings and a variety of water activities. From mid-July to the end of October each year, be on the lookout for humpback whales and experience the thrill of getting up close and personal with these majestic creatures as they enjoy the calm clear waters off Fraser Island.

If conditions are ideal, guests will have the opportunity to experience a humpback whale immersion. The friendly and experienced staff will provide expert commentary throughout the tour as well as serving afternoon tea: antipasti platter including cheese, cabana, crackers, pickled onions, and dip.

The tour concludes with a relaxing cruise back to the Hervey Bay Marina.

    The team at Tasman Venture were such a delight, they were super friendly, accomodating and very knowledgable. We were so lucky to have spotted a yearling humpback whale even though it was not whale watching season - they made sure we got the full experience! Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed. Thumbs up to the team - Lloyd, Mel and BJ. Thank you for showing us a great time.

    Such a great tour! Visited Hervey Bay for the long weekend from Brisbane and we had so much fun! Captain Lloyd, BJ (Papenhyuzen look alike literally), Mel & Bec (homegirls) we’re such an awesome crew. My cousin has a physical disability where she wouldn’t normally be able to participate in all activities but the crew made it possible for her to enjoy her time and have a go at the experiences. Such good weather and awesome vibes from the whole crew, they always made sure everything went smoothly and we had a full on day, but never felt rushed at all. The tour definitely was one of our highlights in the Bay. I would highly recommend it! Don’t think just book, trust me we had such a good time.

    the Crew were experienced, professional and friendly. Very approachable. Food was fresh and plentiful. The sites they chose to visit were thoughtfully chosen to give a good taste of the island. It was a full day but never felt rushed. On top of it all we were lucky enough to have had beautiful weather.
