whale watching

we happen to be @ Hervey Bay on 23JUL2011 when the whale watching season starts! awesome!!!

since we are on a pretty strict schedule since we'll only be in AUS for a month... is it a MUST to book our whale watching trip in advance? or can we arrange this on the spot?

dunno how popular it is at the very beginning of the season

Hope you are going on a tour and not drive yourselves unless you are a very experienced 4wd driver.

quick update!

Blue Dolphin has informed me that July is indeed the early part of the season, but the first whales are usually seen from about the 10 or 11th of July onwards.

Tours start this year on the 23rd making sure the whales are in the bay.

In the 12 years of offering a whale watch on their sailing cats, that over 900 trips, they can still cound the times they have not seen whales on only 2 fingers only :-)

Ofcourse is a nature based trip and there are no guarantees...

but I believe it will be just fine :-)

Excited to encounter some whales downunder!!!!
