“Be one of the few, not the many”
Join Hervey Bay’s only luxury multi award winning sail whale watch vessel for a trip of a lifetime.
We are one of the smallest vessels in the fleet at 10.7m in length. Most of the whales we see are 10 to 13 metres in length and 30 tonnes or more, that’s over 5 times our vessel weight. So when you see a whale from Blue Dolphin you really see a whale!
With only 24 passengers an unforgettable and intimate experience awaits you. The tour is a full day with morning tea, buffet lunch, afternoon tea and a complimentary drink with lunch. We are also licensed. Courtesy Bus available. Multi lingual crew.
Your skipper Peter is Hervey Bay’s most experienced with over 26 years working with marine mammals. 14 years with Seaworld as a marine mammal trainer, a summer season with the Australian
Antarctic Division and 14 years as a dolphin and whale watch operator. He also has many years of experience working with stranded marine mammals. Your day can be as informative as you like as Peter welcomes your questions and invites you to take the wheel.
