We'd been on whale watching tours before - specifically looking for Orcas off Vancouver Island, Canada.
This Hervey Bay Tasman cruise was a whole different ballgame and a whole level up in both professionalism and overall experience.
From the moment we boarded to the point we left the boat, everything was handled so well - including getting involved in the annual Hervey Bay 'blessing of the fleet' festival - an amazing coincidence and experience.
The boat crew were incredibly knowledgeable, knowing where to locate the various pods of humpback whales and during each encounter providing detailed and professional commentary throughout. Think we learned more about whales in general in one afternoon than we'd ever known before. Each pod encounter became ever more special, culminating in multiple 'surface breaches' and a 'fin slapping' session at sunset - some lo-res pics posted here to give you an idea! Whales and commentary aside, if you like free food and drink then the crew provided everything needed to keep both hungry folk happy and kids entertained too if needed.
In summary, a superb highly professional outfit offering one of the best encounters with these magical creatures as you're ever likely to get.
So good we decided to go again a couple of days later. Saw the Whales up close many more Whales than we had previously seen in Maui. Vicky and Carl were very informative. A great day out not to be missed whilst in Hervey Bay.
The crew made sure that we saw some amazing whales. One of the crew members gave commentary / information on the whale migration, behaviour, etc. Overall, a great trip and wonderful experience.
Staff were very friendly, helpful and informative. Wonderful experience
Magnificent whales! Knowledgeable and helpful staff. Well worthwhile.
Amazing experience and thanks to Tasman Venture for making it an unforgettable trip for us!
Saw lots of exciting whales, very nice staff and overall very fun day!
The cruise was wonderful the staff were very friendly and made everyone feel very welcome and comfortable if they were sick. My children had the best experience possible of watching the whales. I would highly recommended this company to any of my friends that are wanting to go whale watching from Hervey bay.
We had a wonderful experience. It was both relaxing and exciting. Would recommend to anyone
It was amazing!
