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!
Your skipper Peter has over 26 years experience with marine mammals, 14 years of which were spent as marine mammal trainer at Seaworld. During those years Peter was involved with saving many stranded marine mammals. You can rest assured that your day will be as informative as you like thanks to Peters experience and he welcomes all your questions so make sure you ask.
Sit back & relax while we cruise around Hervey Bay and Fraser Island on our luxury yacht giving you the change to take in the beautiful panoramic views.
Sip champagne as the sun sets over the waters of the Great Sandy Strait.
The champagne sunset sail last for 90 minutes around Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. All your champagne, beer or wine is fully inclusive and there are also soft drinks and orange juice available as well.
There is no better way wind down after a long day work, exploring Fraser Island or just to start your evening.
The morning Dolphin Cruise is on the waters of the Great Sandy Straits by Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. Here we look for the bottlenose dolphins (aduncas) and the indo-pacific humpback dolphins (sousa chineses), which is a lesser known species. Both of these species reside in small residential pods of up to 20 and are found around Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. The waters are also home to dugongs, turtles, seabirds and other marine life.
Our dolphin watching tours started back in December 1996 and we have maintained a 90% to 95 % success rate for finding the dolphins.
The cruise lasts for around 4 hours and morning tea is provided. During summer and weather permitting we also manage a swim on one of the shallow sand banks.
Peter Lynch has been involved in eco-tourism for many years and has a vast first hand knowledge of the local area as well as the marine life.
Peter has worked with dolphins and whales for over 25 years. 14 years with Seaworld as a marine mammal trainer, a summer season with the Australian Antarctic Division and for the last 11 years as a dolphin and whale watch operator in Hervey Bay, Queensland.
