Freedom III is a comfortable 58ft power catamaran which operates ¾ day whale watch cruises from the Great Sandy Straits Marina in Urangan Harbour. Departing at 9:30 and returning after 3:30pm allows you plenty of time with the awe-inspiring humpback whales in Platypus Bay. The cruise along pristine Fraser Island’s western beaches can offer sightings of dingoes, schooling fish and numerous sea birds. Expert commentary by our knowledgeable skipper will keep you entertained as well as DVD’s on the plasma TV. Colouring activities and soft toys will keep the children amused and if they are tired we have 3 double beds. Home-baked morning tea, tropical buffet lunch as well as fruit and cheese platters for the return trip are all included as well as tea, coffee, water and soft drinks all day. With maximum passenger numbers of 45 and three levels of viewing your whale watch experience will be memorable, informative and uncrowded.
Outside of whale season Freedom III is available for offshore fishing charters for up to 10 guests. These trips are usually for 3 days and 3 nights and fish the abundant waters off Fraser Island and the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Get a group together for some great fishing action.
The month of November is great for sportsfishing in Hervey Bay with the migrating juvenile black marlin visiting these waters. We work in Conjunction with Hervey Bay Fly and Sportfishing to provide Mothershipping for his groups of guests.
Freedom III can also be hired for private day charters or overnight trips on the Great Sandy Strait. Your choice of activities: fishing, boom-netting, swimming, sight-seeing and cruising the sheltered waterways between Fraser Island and the Mainland.
