Hervey Bay whale watching

Has anyone been on a morning whale-watching tour in August? All the tours look good and of course we'll be going to Hervey Bay during the whale-watching season.

Do the whales come up really close to the boat?

It is very expensive so is it worth the money?

Hi louisawalsh,

We went with Whalesong cruises at the end of August last year. As a local company who give back to the community we were glad that we had cruised with them. We found the captain to be very knowledgable and gave you value for money. As for the whales....well they performed on cue and came so close to the boat that we could count the barnacles. I did review our trip on TA if you want more details.
