Humpback Whales

Hervey Bay, QLD

Swim with the whales!
11th Aug 2024

Get up-close and personal with the majestic Humpback Whales in the whale watching capital of Australia! 

Hervey Bay is Australia’s whale watching capital.  In the calm waters of Hervey Bay, protected by Fraser Island, the whales are playful and plentiful and love to interact with us as much as we love them.  August is the prime time to swim with the
whales and the team at Hervey Bay Dive Centre will maximise the opportunity to do so.  The swim experience takes place via a 20m mermaid line connected to the stern. This is truly an experience of a lifetime. 

Guest numbers are strictly limited for a personal and fun day on the water.  Swimming with the whales is dependent on conditions and is only done with the right whales and on the whale’s terms. Whilst swimming with the whales cannot be guaranteed on all tours, you are guaranteed to see whales and to have an exciting and memorable day.
