Blue Dolphin offers almost eye to eye viewing with the whales, the only one of its kind in Hervey Bay, Queensland!

On board Blue Dolphin you are well away from the large noisy crowd usually associated with whale watching tours. The boat is surveyed for 30 passengers but we limit numbers to around 24 for passenger comfort. By limiting the number of passengers it allows for you to have a more personal relationship with the whales, dolphins and the crew, which is necessary for a true eco-tourism experience.

Blue Dolphin cruises at approximately 7 – 8 knots motoring – greater with wind speed.

  • Luxurious 11.6m sailing catamaran
  • Full day vessel (giving you more time with the whales)
  • Low passenger numbers
  • Wide decks with plenty of undercover seating
  • Spacious modern bathroom, 240v power, wifi enabled, hydrophone
  • On board payment facilities
