With the 2012 season fast approaching. The last season there were reports of record numbers of Humpbacks Whales being seen off the Eastern side of Fraser Island and then into the calm waters of Hervey Bay. Now is the time to book your trip to Hervey Bay and Blue Dolphin.
Our first whale watching trip is planned for the 21th of July. With only 24 seats available on our brand new luxury sailing cataraman make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.
Despite the waters of the Great Sandy Strait being quite dirty from all the recent rains the Indo-pacific humpback dolphins are still moving through looking for food. On most of our trips we are happy to find our regular pod of humpback dolphins feeding and playing near the mouth of the harbour.
Join Hervey Bay’s only multi-award winning whale watching sail vessel. We are also the smallest in the fleet at just 10.5m in length. Most of the whales we see are 10 to 13 metres in length and 30 tonnes or more, thats over 5 times the weight of our yacht. So when you see a whale from Blue Dolphin you really see a whale!

8th of April was a great day to be on the waters of Hervey Bay. The waters were very calm and clear. The bottle-nose dolphin were also very friendly. We enjoyed the company of 3 to start our day with. Two young dolphins spent plenty of time playing under the bow. With the clear calm water we could clearly see the eyes of the dolphins as they rolled and played with us. Then the adult came to the surface with large shell on her rostrum. She then tried to get the animal out of the shell. Great to see and very rare. After the dolphins we then went to Pelican banks for a swim. On our way home we also encountered a pod of indo-pacific humpback dolphins.
