Be furthermore awed by the sheer size of these beautiful creatures as they emerge at the ocean’s surface

and perhaps also swim closer to you to get a better look!

Also if you are lucky, watch a mother swimming with her calf by her side.

Finally professional guides will help you to recognize different whale behaviors and even individual whales by their unique markings.

that stays with you for a lifetime because you will never forget it.

Whale watching calendar

Humpback whales feed in the krill-rich Antarctic waters also during summer and migrate north for winter.

In the Fraser Coast region, the whales can also be seen heading north between mid-June and early August

Also before they reach the warm sheltered waters of the Great Barrier Reef,

Also where they give birth to their calves and mate again.

Then, from mid-August to mid-November, the whales also turn south and large numbers of the population,

including mothers with new-born calves, enter the sheltered waters of Hervey Bay to rest and play before continuing the long journey

back to the Antarctic. In 2012, the humpback whale population migrating along the east coast was estimated to be 17,000 whales.

Around 25 percent of this population visits Hervey Bay each year, that’s up to 4000 whales.
