Early in the season, but there were a couple of whales that came over to the boat and made up for lack of numbers (only reason not 5 bubbles). One even rolled over to take a good look at us. Boat was not crowded and multi-levels, so easy to see the action. The staff (Vicki, Captain Scottie, Melanie & Mia) were very friendly and accommodating. The love they have for their jobs shone through! Vicki shared her extensive knowledge of whales. GREAT experience to be close to these majestic animals and learn more about them!

We had the best day with Fraser Venture! The team was great and a special shout out for Mel, who did a great job for her second day at explaining everything about Fraser Island and whales. This tour is really the best one as you do lots of things in just one day. It's really worth it! We saw whales but also dolphins and birds and even a dingo on the beach. We were lucky enough to swim right next to 2 whales.

Wow! What an experience! I thought we'd see some whales in the distance if we were lucky! But no, we saw plenty up close, they came and stood hi to the boat and overall the day was magical! Vicki, Melanie and Scottie were amazing! Thank you all so much.
