Description

Whales, Dolphins and Champagne! Be one of the few, not the many to experience their award winning Exclusive Full Day Whale Watch (late July to October) or their morning Dolphin Tour or a Champagne Sunset Sail (November - June).

For an up close and personal experience that you will never forget, see the magnificent humpback whale from the uncrowded deck of Blue Dolphin. As one of the smallest vessels and a luxury sailing catamaran, you will experience the trip of a lifetime. See the whales eye to eye and listen as your skipper shares his 26 years experience working with marine mammals.

... more

Carrying only a maximum of 24 people, your day on Blue Dolphin will be an intimate and personal tour. Take your time, slow down and take an enjoyable day to see the whales. The Blue Dolphin is a brand new modern luxury 38 foot sailing catamaran, offering wide flat decks and room for all to see.

The full day tour includes morning tea, lunch (with a drink included) and afternoon tea. Morning Dolphin Tour and Champagne Sunset Sail operate also outside the whale watching season.

Their quality and experience sets them apart from the rest.

General Comments

Peter Lynch, owner and operator, has worked with dolphins and whales for over 26 years. 14 years with Seaworld as a marine mammal trainer, a summer season with the Australian Antarctic Division and for the last 12 years as a dolphin and whale watch operator. He has attended many strandings of dolphins and whales and actively supports research by granting access to students to his tours and database.

Marine life abounds in the waters of Hervey Bay. So keep a look out for dolphins, turtles, dugongs and in the sky above for the different bird species. There are Indo-pacific humpback dolphins, Bottlenose dolphins and sometimes the Common dolphin. New fun in the tours, now we have boom netting. Along the beautiful beaches of the western side of Fraser Island an occasional dingo may be spotted searching for food.

Don't forget their other great tours. Come see the two dolphin species in Hervey Bay or enjoy the only Champagne Sunset Sail experience on the Fraser Coast. The morning Dolphin tour is for four hours and is the only one available in Hervey Bay. Look for bottlenose and indo-pacific humpback dolphins and sail along Fraser Island.
