Blue Dolphin Marine Tours is Hervey Bay's leading whale and dolphin watch operator.
Late July to the end of October join us for an intimate experience with the southern humpback whales. We operate a sailing vessel with low passenger numbers. Our full day tour includes all meals and a drink with lunch. Your skipper, Peter Lynch has over 26 years experience with marine mammals. Brand new vessel, hydrophone, water level platform and plenty of shaded seating. Smallest carbon footprint with a sailing vessel and onboard recycling. Blue Dolphin - our quality and experience sets us apart from the rest!
Half Day Dolphin Tours operate November to end of June.
Indo-pacific humpback dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and dugongs live in the waters of the Great Sandy Strait. On most trips we encounter both species of dolphins. A great way to spend half a day in the waters beside Fraser Island. Morning tea included.
