Highlights
    What to Expect
    After morning pickup at your hotel in Hervey Bay, meet your boat at Great Sandy Straits Marina.
    Nibble a light morning tea served on board as your captain steers the boat into the waters of Great Sandy Strait, which are home to two species of dolphins — bottlenose dolphins and Australian humpback dolphins — along with dugongs and sea turtles. Your guide shares commentary about the marine life of the region and other fascinating facts as you look for wildlife.
    Have the opportunity to swim off the west coast of Fraser Island at the pristine Pelican Banks, or at the beaches of Fraser Island itself. If you're feeling adventurous, you can ride in the boom net on the boat.
    If conditions allow, your captain may raise the sails on the 38-foot (11.5-meter) boat so that you can experience the vessel under sail power. The boat is a smaller sized vessel, making for a more intimate experience. Wi-Fi is available on-board.
    At the end of four hours, your tour ends with return to your starting point in Hervey Bay.
    Please note that dolphins are spotted on 95% of the tours, however they are wild animals and sightings are unpredictable.

    Thank you Jane for leaving your review. Yes there are benifits in travelling in the off season as the tours do have smaller passenger numbers. We have a great area and the dolphins that live here all year round are always welcome to visit when...More
