We were picked up by the friendly driver and taken to boat. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Lots of seats to choose from. We got on our way early as all there. Skipper was great. Found whales early. Spent time with each pod but cleverly moved on for more opportunities. There were many. It kept getting better. The American young lady giving the commentary was outstanding (sorry forgot name) made every encounter so much more exciting, educational and an adventure. Thank you. Added 2-3 stars to this trip. All the staff were great. Loved the trip. Would highly recommend this company. Beyond the call of duty staff- can do attitudes.

We went out on the Whale Watching and Remote Fraser Island tour last weekend with the guys from Tasman Venture and wow what an adventure! We saw so many whales it was amazing! Lots of mums with babies which meant, unfortunately, we couldn't go swimming - but that's ok we were all mesmerised by the gigantic creatures anyway. The stops on Fraser were amazing as well. I've never been to the west side of the island and wow this place is heaven on earth! But above all else, the staff were just phenomenal. Such a friendly bunch of people and so generous with their time and knowledge. I can't recommend this tour enough and I'm super keen to do it again some time.

To read such a wonderful review makes our hearts happy. Thank you so much for travelling with Tasman Venture on the Remote Fraser Island & Whale Experience. We love to show our guests the beautiful remote side of Fraser Island that they normally wouldn't get to see, while also getting some quality time with the magnificent humpback whales. Hopefully we will see you again in the future.
