For Whalesong Cruises, Whale & Dolphin Watching is part of life & the sheltered waters between World Heritage-listed Fraser Island & the mainland, provides the best place in Australia to experience a Humpback Whale, a close encounter like no other.
Children have been brought up on board the boat with parents who are passionate about providing the best they can for their guests.
Fraser Island not only provides a lovely backdrop for guests, but for whale-watchers and whales alike, a welcome break from the ocean swells that are encountered elsewhere on Australia’s East Coast.
We can honestly say that the whale’s, purposely venture into the calm Bay waters to rest and relax & interact with the boats (& the people) & then stay with us for 1 to 5 days.
Choosing to visit the Bay for centuries & with records showing humpback whales interacting with boats here for over 25 years, means the whales are at ease & regularly come within meters of our boat.
This exclusive up close & personal viewing is available for a limited time each year, from late July to 31st October.
The rest of the year, these pristine waterways provide a perfect setting for a Dolphin or Sunset Cruise.
Types of wildlife we can &; have observed includes up to 4 varieties of Dolphin, Turtles, Fish & BirdLife, the shy endangered Dugong or Sea Cow & in one year we saw 5 different species of Whales.
The brand new M.V. Whalesong was built to be environmentally friendly, low carbon impact & was designed to allow guests to cruise in comfort.
Minimizing our impact on the environment is extremely important.
Enclosed & open-air viewing on two levels, a water level viewing area, & extra-wide, walk-around decks, provide the ultimate in extra viewing & seating space.
So all guests have excellent vantage points for viewing a wide variety of wildlife or to just sit back & enjoy the sunset.
