The Spirit of Hervey Bay has two underwater viewing rooms located in the hulls of the vessel, each with four viewing windows. These windows allow you to get below the waterline and enjoy the whales in their natural environment. The whales have a very curious nature and often dive back and forth beneath the boat - its almost like they are toying with you. Such an intimate experience with these majestic creatures will take your breath away!

Our cruises will take you into the Hervey Bay Marine Park and Platypus Bay for an up close and personal whale watching experience. Our 27 years experience guarantees you will have a safe, comfortable, and unforgettable whale watching adventure.

The Spirit of Hervey Bay is a large catamaran. Specifically built for whale watching, the Spirit provides first class cruising and comfort for your whale watch outing.

While you watch the whales swim beneath you in their underwater world you can also listen to their magical songs through a hydro phone located on board. It is a truly memorable event and one not to be missed.

We operate Humpback whale watching tours from late July to late October each year. The Spirit of Hervey Bay has operated these tours for 27 years. This specialist experience means you are guaranteed a comfortable, safe and exciting whale watching trip.

The vessel has 6 levels spread over 5 decks giving you front row viewing from anywhere on the boat and ample photo opportunities from all angles. The Spirit also has the largest waterline viewing platform that can be lowered down to give you that "oh so close" experience if the whales come right up to the boat. We have a large cabin area and plenty of comfortable seating & tables for you to enjoy a light refreshment or snack from our galley. We are fully licensed and have a well stocked bar.
There is plenty of room for everyone with no over-crowding.

Prams and strollers are also welcome.
