Description

Did you know the whales are attracted to bright colours, making the bright yellow Spirit a favourite amongst the friendly and inquisitive whales that visit Hervey Bay for their annual holiday from late July to end October each year.

Fast and luxurious, the Spirit gets you to the whale's playground with minimal travelling time for maximum viewing pleasure with the whales. With close encounters being their specialty, the Spirit offers the most viewing area of any boat, five levels of viewing decks allowing plenty of room to move around at your leisure. No crowding on this boat.

... more

Fantastic features include underwater viewing rooms that place you below the waterline for a spiritual experience in the whales underwater world, the amazing waterline viewing platform that lowers you to the water's edge within arms reach of the gentle giants and a hydrophone to listen to the beautiful whales songs.

They also offer money back guarantee on sightings (10/8 - 10/10) or another cruise free outside these dates.

With free extras such as a whale souvenir DVD, WIFI connection, children's activities and transfers from your accommodation, the Spirit of Hervey Bay has everything you need for a spectacular time out with the whales.
