Witness the greatest Humpback Whale Migration

The Humpback Whales are iconic animals in our country and if you feel lucky to be able to witness their spectacular migration from the south to the north of Australia, you are far from being alone. 

Hervey Bay and Fraser Island are the best places to watch whales in Australia, if not the world. The Humpback Whales make a well-deserved stop in the tranquil waters  of Hervey Bay before continuing with their journey to the North. From water aerial displays to fin-slaps, whales give spectacular shows! 

So why Blue Dolphin? 

Because Peter and the crew are amazing of course. I know we say it a lot be seriously all the trips we advertise are the cream of the crop. We love Blue Dolphin for their passion, knowledge and love of conservation. 


With over 33 years of experience, Blue Dolphin Marine Tours offers one of the most comprehensive whale watching tours in Queensland. Travelling aboard a comfortable, multi-award-winning sailing vessel allows you to feel like you are in the heart of the humpback whales playground. If the conditions are appropriate, you may be able to use the in-water platform for an immersive experience offering a truly once in a lifetime encounter with these magnificent animals.
