Whale Watching in Queensland, Australia
One of the greatest things about Queensland, Australia is the sheer variety of attractions on offer in the area. Though plenty of time can be spent at the theme parks of the Gold Coast, one of the greatest adventures of your life can occur just a short trip out onto the calm waters of Hervey Bay.
Whale watching is an experience that you will never get bored of telling your friends about, and with Whalesong Cruises in Queensland, Australia you will be travelling with one of the best companies in the world.
Whalesong Cruises is owned and operated by Jason and Virginia Brigden who have run the company for the last 14 years. Jason will be your guide and as he drives the boat you will quickly find out just how vast his knowledge of the area is. He is passionate about what he does, and as a keen fisherman and photographer there is no better man for the job. Virginia works mainly in the office, but the two complement each other perfectly and while on the tour and in their company you really do feel less like a guest and more like family.
The marquee whale watching tour that Whalesong Cruises put on features that majestic Humpback Whale. This up close encounter is like nothing else you will see in Australia because the still waters between Fraser Island & the Fraser Coast/Hervey Bay are where the animals thrive.
Humpbacks are huge animals that can grow up to 16 metres in length and weigh in excess of 34,000 kgs. While most are shy some have been known to swim alongside whale watching boats for minutes at a time seemingly enjoying the attention!
Though the Humpbacks are the star of the show you will get to see a wide variety of marine life on a Whalesong Cruise. There are four different species of dolphin in the area along with sea turtles, the endangered dugong, four other species of whale and fish and marine birds aplenty. The tours are fun and exciting because they are never the same twice and each trip will result in new and different animals being seen.
Between mid July and early November Whalesong offers two cruises eachday. For $125 you get to see all the wonders of the ocean while enjoying either breakfast and morning tea or lunch and afternoon tea depending on which tour you take. Both options include a variety food and treats which make the day even more memorable.
Whale watching is an adventure anyone should jump at if the opportunity is there, and on any South Eastern Queensland holiday, Australia, Whalesong Cruises are the company to choose.
