Amazing!
Sep 2021 • Family
We were impressed! Friendly and attentive service- welcomed with a smile from start to end.
Once we left the port, a welcoming of hot drinks were offered and brought to us on the deck.
Around 20 friendly people onboard, perfectly spaced so we didn’t feel crowded at all and everyone could view the whales without trouble.
A windy day, we expected some bumps and rolling- it wasn’t a drama the boat and crew handled it perfectly and we loved the action!
Not too far past Frasers’ Nth Coast we got to stay and admire 3 males and a female then we headed out further to find several pods of Mum and calf.
Mum’s were tail splashing and calves were learning breaching. Lots of water spouting!
Afternoon tea and dinner were of quality food selections and the captains talks on the region and knowledge of the whales was thoughtful, insightful and his commentary of the sighting and action of the whales showed genuine emotion. He and his crew genuinely love their jobs

Our afternoon cruises quite often have less people than the morning, but it's certainly not because it's not as amazing!! Whale Watching, dinner, and a sunset cruise all rolled into one! What a perfect end to a perfect afternoon onboard with us at Whalesong Cruises! Our skipper and crew really make it that much more memorable and we appreciate you sharing your experience with us!

Afternoon with whales.
Sep 2021
After many visits to Hervey Bay we took this as an opportunity to do a whale sight seeing cruise. We are so happy that we chose Whalesong Cruise. We decided to do the sunset cruise and we were not disappointed. We were lucky to have close experiences with a number of whales after the captain and crew took time to give guests every opportunity to see these amazing animals. The food onboard was tasty and served by staff.

And we are so glad you chose us to finally experience whale watching! So many people say they have visited several times or even lived here for a long time before they finally board! They are never disappointed! Thanks for joining us on Whalesong Cruises!

Thank you too for an amazing review (bit of poetry there)... We are so happy to hear that you had a wonderful experience from start to finish - we are really fortunate to have a crew that are able to provide that level of service. We hope you can join us again to experience the morning cruise next time :)

Perfect whale experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
The boat is perfect for taking a nice cruise,everyone can get a good look at the whales. The crew was super friendly. The captain made a genuine effort to give us the best possible whale experience. Bar,snacks,dinner at sunset and the whole ride were unforgettable. Whalesong is highly recommended.

We appreciate your review of everything! Our boat doesn't get enough praise in my opinion, it's always the crew or the whales! So I will certainly pass it on... Our sunset cruises continue over summer - they're just a little shorter and we have no whales to watch, but they are still just as amazing. We recommend those too!

Great boat, fabulous crew, good dinner - we didn't have to go far to find the whales, we stayed with good whales and kept looking if they were not too active - good captain attitude

Sounds like an all round success of an afternoon Denise! Our sunset whale watch cruises aren't always as popular as the morning cruises, but this is proof that they are just as good! Fabulous crew coupled with the skipper of all skippers, dinner and the sunset... What a winning combination.

Our crew certainly love hearing about how much they impact everyone's day, and I will most definitely pass on your thanks! Our afternoon cruise is that extra bit special with the sunset as we return to the marina. So happy you were able to enjoy the entire experience Brian. We appreciate your feedback!

A spectacular experience
Aug 2020
What an amazing afternoon! It didn't look promising when we left port in the rain, but an hour later we had clearer skies and a fantastic show from numerous pods of whales for the next couple of hours. The water is so blue, you can see the whales dive and circle the boat. We were spoilt to a spectacular sunset, some dinner and then everyone partied their way back home.
The crew should be credit with being so polite and helpful in a COVID-19 environment which made their job exceptionally challenging. But they did it well.

Great to see you had an amazing Afternoon + Sunset Whale watch with Whalesong! Sometimes the weather can trick us...this time in a positive way. Thanks for taking the time to review us. It's certainly challenging times at the moment with COVID-19 but our entire team do a great job keeping everyone safe and happy!
